The Memorial Day weekend countdown is here…

So let’s give you a few things to do to fill that last half hour fifteen minutes…

I was one of three bloggers that were interviewed for this week’s episode of WBHM‘s arts and culture program Tapestry. The segment was on blogging and featured myself, Wade Kwon and Ashley Umbaugh. You can check out the story as it ran or the excerpts from my extended interview. If you want to hear it on the radio, it’s on tomorrow morning at 11:30 a.m. on 90.3 FM.

Our conductor Jason Donaldson’s still suffering from the spill he took on his bike a couple of weeks ago, but he’s pulled together a great set of musical options for you to check out for the weekend. You can always follow Jason on Twitter to see what else he’s up to.

How about letting us know just what you’re doing this weekend… it’s our Magic City Question after all.

Pepper Place Market’s 10th year starts Saturday

Franklin Biggs Fans of the Pepper Place Saturday Market already know that their wait is almost over. In less than two days the parking lot for the former Dr. Pepper building in Pepper Place on Birmingham’s Southside will be transformed on Saturday mornings from 7 a.m. – 12 p.m. into an organic farmers market. This year, the farmers market will run for 22 consecutive Saturdays, going through October 10 rain or shine. It will also be celebrating its tenth anniversary. As usual, 2nd Avenue South between 28th and 29th Streets will be blocked off.

This week’s 9 a.m. cooking demonstration will be conducted by Daniel George‘s Chef Daniel Briggs. Maybe he’ll have as much fun as Franklin Biggs did a couple of years ago

Random shots: Getting ready for tomorrow

For those looking for other ways to enjoy this relaxing Saturday in Birmingham, AL, you’ve still got time to get to Ensley for their 3rd annual Easter Parade and Gospel Concert. The parade starts at 12 p.m. and the concert begins shortly afterward.

Need some other idea (or have some you’d like to share)? Head on over to this week’s got plans post over on Timetable.

BTW, if you feel so compelled to share your photos from this weekend, send them into photos@bhamterminal.com.

All kinds of stuff going on…

We were just a little quiet today over here, save for the “deluge” of information shared in the last hour or so. It would be a shame if you didn’t head on over to Timetable as well and check out Jason’s picks for the weekend, including a chance to support someone who’s supported us a lot at Bare Hands Gallery and Josh’s info on the restaurant that’s taking over the former Copeland’s space down there on 280.

Enjoy the ride! And we will have a little more information later on this evening.

You planned your weekend yet?

Well if you haven’t, Jason’s got info on everything from music to chili with a little ballet in between (we’re of course assuming that you’ve already gotten over to Timetable to take a look). If not, this week’s Got Plans 2.0 starts… RIGHT NOW!

Got Plans? returns!

jasonpostFor the better part of two months I’ve been promising a return of our most popular column, Got Plans? When Christina signed off in October, we had a lot of folks wondering what we were going to do next. Some have even been going back and rereading old entries just to get their fix for the week. Enter Jason Donaldson (hint, he’s the guy to the left of all of this text).

Today Jason, The Terminal’s newest staff member, sets out to take Got Plans in a different direction and he’s looking for your suggestions as well. Allow Mr. Donaldson to introduce himself to you this morning, and reintroduce you to Got Plans.

One more “Got Plans”

It’s Friday. And you know what that means … time for another “Got plans?” column. Head over to Timetable to see what I’ve got on my calendar.

Psst … it’s my last column.
