Hunter Bledsoe places second

While he didn’t win – Hunter Bledsoe did place second! Considering that more than 55 million students participate in the National Geographic Bee each year, that is certainly an accomplishment.

Bledsoe, a 13 year-old from Trussville, AL, earns a $15,000 college scholarship for his performance at today’s 20th annual Geographic Bee earlier today.

Five Guys logoIf you haven’t ventured over to Brookwood Village to try out Five Guys Famous Burgers & Fries, our newest entry into the world of burger joints here in Birmingham, don’t worry about it … soon you’ll have to choose where you want to go.

The chain, which started in Arlington, Va., and is truly famous nationwide, will soon open its second metro Birmingham location at The Pinnacle shopping development in Trussville next to The Loop.

That location, the Colorado-based company’s third in Alabama, opened earlier this year. We’re guessing that time will tell who’s burger reigns supreme.
