A busy night for YPs

There are a few options for Birmingham’s young professional crowd (and everybody else) on this wet but unseasonably comfortable Thursday afternoon. The Birmingham Botanical Gardens has just sent out word that this evening’s finale for their 2008 Cocktails in the Gardens series will go on as planned (complete with Rollin’ in the Hay) inside the center’s auditorium while the folks at the Museum of Art and Sloss Furnaces hope that you’ll come out and join them for tonight’s Iron Pour. For those that still can’t decide between the first two, The Wine Loft’s downtown location we will be hosting Spill the Wine, a fundraiser for The Great American Bake Sale and Crestline Early Learning Center, complete with a silent auction and wine tasting. We know there’s more, so get to sharing…

Vote for the Young King and Queen of Birmingham tonight!

There’s still time to buy your tickets in advance for tonight’s YP Birmingham event. It begins at 6 p.m. at The Wine Loft .
