And we did goof; we had checked out a lead (our first – and only I might add) on The Rumble about the prospect of a brew pub moving into the old Jimmie Hale Mission building downtown. We were told that evening that deal looked like it was about to fall through. Now today’s Birmingham News reported that the deal is done and we’re soon going to have a great place to go. Thanks for the tip “Bobby” keep ’em coming and next time we’ll see what we can do.
