We don’t take holidays here at The Terminal. Well, okay we do but first I’ll fill you in on this weekend’s highlights.

There’s really just one highlight for me and it will be lighting up the sky Friday night. Thunder on the Mountain is a rather cheesy name for a fireworks show but I’m all about cheese and it’s a great display. I have my own secret spot for viewing and I’m not sharing. But I will tell you that UAB is offering a nice spot and music too. The UAB Summer Band will play a free concert at 8 p.m., filled with patriotic tunes, on the lawn of Bartow Arena, 617 13th St. South. Bring your lawn chairs, the little ones, blankets and picnic baskets. The fireworks start at 9 p.m. If you don’t want to get caught in traffic, stay home and watch the live broadcast on Fox 6. And don’t forget to tune your radio to The New 94.5 FM and Rock 99.5 FM for music to go with the purty lights.

If you are not heading to the beach Saturday, check out the garage sale at GreencupBooks, 105 Richard Arrington Jr. Blvd. South. I’m betting they’re going to have lots of cool stuff besides the obvious, books! For example, they do promise free cold beverages. Bonus, the sale is Sunday too. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

A reminder (in fact, someone reminded me) that every weekend (except this weekend) you can watch movies on the big screen at Alabama Theatre. Sure the new theaters have digital sound and fancy cup holders, but what they lack in charm the Alabama has in spades. Treat yourself.

Now go off and have a happy and safe Fourth of July. I already know what some of you have planned. The rest of you can fill me in now.

P.S. A special Happy Birthday to loyal reader CJ.

Aw, thanks. :) It's already been a great one, and it's still 10 hours away!


  1. […] Sorry guys and gals. I just spent some time adding items to the Terminal calendar, something I need to do more often (Hint, hint: Submit your events, your friends’ events, even stuff you hear about and I’ll do my best to get the info up somewhat quicker than slower). And I had this nagging feeling that I’d forgotten to do something. And then it hit me, I needed to take out the trash. Then I remembered the mayor gave everyone the day off. But not me. I won’t take the day off from telling you about this weekend; read on. […]
