Grow your mustaches for the kids…

MustacheIt’s time for the Sweetest ‘Stache contest here in Birmingham. You can visit the Mustaches for Kids website to learn more about how this competition came to be and who benefits from the growth of facial hair for four weeks. Growing season in this case will be from April 1 – May 1, with a kick-off Clean Shaven Day party happening at The Bottletree on April Fool’s Day. Our effort will benefit Children’s Hospital in New Orleans.

There will be Mustache Checkpoint Days around town throughout the month at area bars (April 10, 17 & 24 @ 8 p.m.). I’m sure that we’ll get more information about the location of these events later on, though we do know that the one on the 17th will be at Rojo.

Come on, any chance to take part in a competition that includes being recognized for “beer foam retention” – when the ‘staches are judged on Thursday, May 1 @ The Bottletree – needs to be shouted from the rooftops…

Marathoners take over downtown this weekend

Mercedes Marathon logoThis year the Mercedes Marathon will take over Birmingham’s central business district (and parts of the metro area) on both Saturday and Sunday, February 9 & 10. We’d like to take a moment and look at the charities that will benefit from the masses of humanity moving through town this weekend (and to find out why you should be out there cheering them on as they run/walk/dance through your part of town):

BTW: There’s still time to sign up at the expo too (tonight and tomorrow) 🙂

Children’s Hospital unveiled its new helicopter to the public today via a story in today’s Birmingham News. We figured you might be interested in getting an up close and personal look at the new pediatric transport chopper, so we invite you to click on the image above (or just click here) and check out our photo gallery of this new extremely useful tool for the hospital.

FYI – this is also the debut of our new photo gallery section (appropriately titled the gallery) here on The Terminal. We figured you may want to know a couple of things about that really weird slideshow function that we’re using.
