Folks in Birmingham’s central business district will soon have a new place to visit for sandwiches, sweets and drinks before they spend the evening enjoying a show. It appears that Mix will be joining the mix in the very near future.

The sign tells us all that we currently know about the new space – that it will serve sweets, sandwiches and drinks – though we’ve also heard that you shouldn’t be surprised to see some interesting stuff on the walls once it opens…
