got plans 2.0 | 6.5 – 6.7.2009

If you haven’t had a chance to celebrate since the hops got freed, the Magic City Brewfest is where you need to be this weekend. That is if you can get a ticket. From looks of things on their website the inebriated masses have already bought up most of the tickets, but if you rush over to Sloss this morning you may be able to get a couple of the 100 beer tickets they’re selling.

Are you a country music fan? Forget Nashville this weekend, road trip it down to Enterprise, AL for BamaJam. Taylor Swift and just about every other country star is there this weekend. Things kicked off last night but I’m sure the best is coming tonight and tomorrow.

Celebrate at Vulcan’s 105th Birthday Bash Sunday. Tickets are pretty cheap for this afternoon of family fun.

Also on Sunday, the Alabama Theatre is hosting an open house which includes a tour of the Lyric Theatre.  The tour is free but a donation towards the renovation of the Lyric would be greatly appreciated. The Alabama’s summer film series starts this weekend as well with screenings of Pinocchio and the sing-along version of Mamma Mia .

If you’ve got plans of your own be sure to fill the rest of in…

Muse of Fire previews new show at Library

The Birmingham Public Library recently announced that they would be welcoming back local “deconstructed Shakespeare” troupe Muse of Fire for this month’s BPL@Night performance (They announced it via their blog as well). They’ll be previewing their latest effort, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which they are currently scheduled to take to “the stage” of Sloss Furnaces in May. The free performance will take place in the atrium of the downtown branch on Richard Arrington Jr. Blvd. next week Thursday, March 19, beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Their MySpace page has some new photos taken during rehearsals – check ’em out!

Got plans this weekend? 7.11 – 7.13

Editor’s note: This week Birmingham Magazine associate editor Carla Jean Whitley takes the weekend planning reigns while Christina enjoys a vacation at an undisclosed location.

As Birmingham magazine’s official calendar editor, I always know what’s happening around town-often to the detriment of my budget! Last weekend wasn’t bad, with an emphasis on time outside and cooking with friends. Other times social- and entertainment-heavy weekends loom on the horizon; I’m saving now for all the cash I’ll drop with concerts, Artwalk and Muse of Fire scheduled for the first weekend of September!

But then there are weekends like the one ahead: plenty of activities to choose from that won’t break the bank.
