#bhamchat returns tonight!

A little over a year ago, we took a chance on hosting an online chat using Twitter that focused on Birmingham, AL. We had a pretty good turnout for the first one, with people sharing their opinions about current events taking place in The Magic City and information about upcoming events. It also turned out to be the first ever Twitter chat focused on a single city/metropolitan area…

Several things have changed since the last time we hosted one, including the number of people that are now on Twitter in Birmingham and those interested in this kind of a conversation. So it’s back, tonight, starting at 7 p.m. Anyone who has a Twitter account is invited to take part. We’ll be opening it up to those without an account in the coming weeks via this site.

Even if you don’t have an account, please feel free to follow along using our What the Hashtag? pagevia Twitter search or using a service like Tweetchat.

In case you’re one of our followers on Twitter and you don’t want to be potentially bombarded between 7 – 8:30 p.m. this evening, please check out muuter as an option.

UPDATE: Is the Heritage Festival returning?

UPDATE – 5.19.2009: According to Urbanham.com, the festival will return in mid-August. Here are the details.

A quick look around the Internet late last night brought up this page of information for folks wondering about the future of the Birmingham Heritage Festival.

There is no location listed but there are dates for this year’s event (in August) and contact information for anyone looking to be involved in the festival. We’ll keep an eye on it and look forward to doing some coverage of it this summer.
