On the hub: New faces and questions

Well, there’s a familiar one in there as well. One thing you’ll no doubt notice as you return from the holiday weekend next week is a couple of changes to the front page so those of you that visit the site regularly know what’s going on elsewhere on The Terminal. However, for the time being:

You’ve got until noon tomorrow to enter for a chance to win tickets to The Duke Spirit show at The Bottletree this weekend;

Terri’s returned and so has In Love With, and just in time for the holidays;

It seems a lot of folks are in love with Josh’s review of Maki Fresh;

and we’re wondering what favorite Thanksgiving dish are you looking forward to having on your table come Thursday?

Besides the one linked to the pending purchase of Carraway Medical Center by Shinsegae USA, there’s also the recent opening of one of the new look Microtel properties in Hoover and today’s announcement about the $6.5 million worth of upgrades being made at the Hilton Birmingham Perimeter Park, scheduled for completion in October.

That’s on top of the other lodging projects currently underway known and unknown in the metro Birmingham area, including the Hyatt Place under construction on the city’s Southside (even though it is not listed among ones that will be opening in the near future).
