Got plans this weekend? 5.30 – 6.1

Why of course you do. There is so much happening in the Magic City this weekend. Well, that’s if you like beer, crawfish, music and/or our naked statue guy. If you don’t like any of those, you’re out of luck.

They’re at it again this weekend, first at Caldwell Park Friday night at 8 then Saturday night same time at Fort McClellan’s Longleaf Park.

Got plans this weekend? 5.23 – 5.25

Are you listening to music? The poor guys and gals with the Alabama Symphony Orchestra are not heading to the beach. Instead they are playing TWO outdoor concerts. Join the ASO and The Temptations at Caldwell Park Friday night at 8. Beer, wine and soft drinks will be available for purchase. (FYI, law says you can’t bring your own and you can’t bring glass containers … unless you are very, very sneaky. Just don’t expect us to bail you out.) The park is located at 1116 26th St. South. Tickets are $20/students $10. Call ’em at 251-7727.

Then Saturday, the ASO takes the show on the road to Fort McClellan’s Longleaf Park. In honor of the holiday Monday, the show is patriotic in theme. Tickets at the gate are $25/ages 4-12 $5/and under 3 free. Grounds open at 6 p.m. for picnics and visiting, show starts at 8. Food and drinks will be for sale and picnic baskets/coolers encouraged. I can’t find anything on the Web site that tells you what you can’t have in that cooler, so BYOB. For more info, call (256) 310-0852.
