And so another month comes to a close. Here’s what you can do during the last weekend of March, starting with lunch.
Today from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. is the 5th Annual Empty Bowls Event at St. Vincent’s Hospital in the Bruno’s Conference Center. Except the bowls aren’t really empty.
They’ll be filled with delicious soup from local caterer A Social Affair paired with tasty cheeses provided by Cabot Creamery. Your donation of $15 benefits Magic City Harvest, a non-profit “prepared and perishable food recovery program.” In other words, they pick up the leftovers headed to the trash from area restaurants and distribute them to people in need. Good work to support. And what I think is the best part, you get to take home a hand-painted or hand-crafted bowl. If you can’t stay to eat, starting this year you can pick out your bowl and take your soup to go. Free parking in the North Deck.
Tonight and Saturday night, help stop violence against women by attending performances of “The Vagina Monologues” at UAB. I just put the information on the Terminal’s cal of events. Save me some typing and click here to read all about it.
Sam’s already told you about Raise the Volume and seeing OK GO and Wild Sweet Orange tonight. I second the motion so again, I’m going to be lazy and tell you to click here to get the info and read more of Sam’s music recommendations for the weekend. To see the best video EVER, check out OK GO, on treadmills. BEST EVER.
One last thing to tell you about … All day Saturday you can catch the best in LGBT independent cinema during the third annual Birmingham SHOUT Gay + Lesbian Film Festival. Brought to you by the same folks behind Sidewalk. And it really is all day Saturday with film screenings from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. at Workplay. You can buy a festival pass for $17 or pay $7 per movie. There’s even an Offical SHOUT after party at Lakeview Yacht Club.
So have fun. Be safe. Tell us all about your plans or brag about what you did Monday.
