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.

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…

The Terminally Happy Hour, The Bottletree

We’re hoping that you’re happy after filing those tax returns (and hopefully getting some refunds as well). Join us for our first monthly happy hour event at The Bottletree. We’ll be able to take over the patio and have some chips and salsa while enjoying happy hour drink specials. There may even be a new drink special for you to try out (well, maybe) while you get the chance to hang out with some of The Terminal’s staff, tell us how good (or bad) we really are to our faces and enjoy some good company.

Cost: Free (but it is happy hour after all)

Let’s call happy hour tonight – seriously!

Foosball table

One of the new initiatives that we’re planning on is a monthly happy hour at The Bottletree. Since the weather’s cleared up (mostly), and mainly because I just want to see what happens, I’m calling happy hour for… TONIGHT!!

No, this isn’t the official start, but we thought what the hell (we did mention it on our MySpace profile yesterday).

From 5 – 7 p.m. tonight, venture on over to Avondale and sit out on The Bottletree’s side patio (it’s covered) and enjoy The Terminally Happy Hour.

Right now it’s pretty quiet (but there’s foosball to be played).

If not, we’ll have a couple of announcements tomorrow morning anyway. Enjoy the ride!

This Will Go On Your Permanent Record release party w/The2ndHand No. 27, The Bottletree

So you’ve got to check out this release party and reading for THE2NDHAND contributor Susannah Felts‘ first novel, This Will Go Down on Your Permanent Record, a sort of coming-of-age of the artist, a story of the commitment of youth, given freedom.

There will be readings by Felts, Birmingham poet Chris Lawson, and the trio of THE2NDHAND editor Todd Dills, contributor Nadria Tucker (winner of our 2007 Art Walk competition) and poet Emily Self as Pitchfork Battalion. Music by Through the Sparks‘ Jody Nelson.

Cost: Free
