The Bottletree Bailout is born!

For those that visited the site this weekend, the post at the top of the page best summed up my thoughts about the situation involving  The Bottletree and City Stages. So of course the next question was, what else to do besides asking folks to go. The answer is simple -> ask them to come out!

We’re calling a Terminally Happy Hour for this Thursday, July 2 – only this time it’s a Bottletree Bailout! We’re asking all of you that see this (and your friends) to come out to The Bottletree whenever you can during happy hour on Thursday – we’ll be getting there at around 4 p.m. – and enjoy meeting people from elsewhere in metro Birmingham while providing business for a venue that’s done a lot for us.

Tonight’s the Holiday Get Together

I’ve been working on some stuff behind the scenes and away from Birmingham’s hub today, leading to a lapse in posting – and keeping us from reminding folks earlier – but we’re hoping that some of you may be interested in showing up at Speakeasy this evening (1920 3rd Avenue North) for our 2nd annual Holiday Get Together. It just also happens to be Repeal Day (you know you’re interested).

We’ll have a few t-shirts for folks and if you feel like it, you can show up with a non-perishable food or monetary donation for The Community Kitchens of Birmingham (please have checks written out to the organization). We’re not charging a cover or really knowing what to expect; we only wanted a chance to see folks before the end of the year so we hope you’re planning to at least pop in for a second.

If you cannot attend this evening, please consider visiting their website or forwarding their URL to a friend and clicking on the Donate now button.

As always, enjoy the ride and the holidays!

A quiet day on The Hub, so come be Terminally Happy!

We’ve spent most of the day in meetings with some of our fellow media outlets (some planned, some unplanned), leading to the silence on this Monday morning. We’d like to thank them (you know who you are) for taking some time to pow wow about some things. Hopefully we’ll see some of you at The J. Clyde (who appear ready to enter the world of blogging themselves) this evening (Monday, November 17) for an impromptu Terminally Happy Hour (we should be there at 5:30 p.m.); otherwise, keep your eyes open for some minor tweaks to the site beginning tomorrow…

…and let us know if you can make our Holiday Get Together on December 5th (at Speakeasy) – let us know over on Facebook if you’ll be able to make it).

Celebrate Repeal Day (and the holidays) with The Hub!

It’s the time of year where folks find time to come together and enjoy each other’s company – and we wouldn’t want it any other way! So how about putting our little get-together on your calendar now so you don’t forget?

Come on out Friday, December 5 for a special holiday edition of The Terminally Happy Hour downtown at Speakeasy!

Let us know you’re coming via RSVP at Facebook or Upcoming!

See, December 5 happens to be the 75th anniversary of passage of the 21st Amendement (a.k.a. Repeal Day), repealing the 18th Amendment (the one that ushered in Prohibition). So we figured, what better way to celebrate than to go to a bar named Speakeasy. We’re excited that they’ll will be letting us invade the bar that night. We’ll have some more information next week…

But if you know of any other holiday parties we can add to the list, let us know in the comments section.

The Terminally Happy Hour, The Bottletree

We figured we’d try this again.

Here’s how it’ll happen; we’ll show up at The Bottletree and hang out on the patio starting around 5 p.m. You’ll come on out and join us on said patio as we really hope it’s warm and not raining (although the patio is covered). We’ll have some crazy conversations going on and we’ll all be able to enjoy happy hour drink specials, Magic City Manhattans and chips and salsa.

What more do you need to enjoy a lazy Wednesday evening before the official start of summer? We thought so…

Let us know if you’re coming either through Facebook or Upcoming.org.

Cost: It’s happy hour, come on…

Be Terminally Happy tonight…

Terminally Happy Hour 300In case you didn’t know, we’re hosting our first ever Terminally Happy Hour this evening over at The Bottletree. We’ve learned a couple of things since we first announced this event…

The Bottletree’s going to run happy hour prices until 8 p.m., meaning that we’ve actually got an extra hour for the event (thanks guys!)

There’s going to be a Mystery Science Theater 3000 marathon afterwards (here’s the info courtesy of The Bottletree).

So come on out, enjoy the patio, the Magic City Manhattan (bourbon, sweet vermouth, and a splash of bitters) and the company of fellow readers and members of our staff!

If you feel like letting us know if you’re going to be there, RSVP via our invites on MySpace or Facebook.
