Got plans this weekend? 6.27 – 6.29

So, if you read this column of mine regularly you have probably figured out that I like outdoor music concerts. Yes, I would like them better without the humidity and bugs, but that doesn’t keep me from going. This Friday night the music will be playing at Aldridge Botanical Gardens. Starring in this edition of their Concert in the Gardens series is Cleve Eaton and the Alabama All-Stars. The sweet sounds of jazz will start at 7:30. Cost is $10 for non-members. If you haven’t checked out Aldridge yet, it’s not a bad little spot in Hoover. Once inside, it’s very easy to forget you are in Hoover. Normally, you do not have to pay to get in.

Reminder, you can help out Ruffner Mountain Friday at Java and Jams. Read more about this event featuring the Terminal’s own Bob Farley, here.

Got plans this weekend? 5.16-5.18

FRIDAY Check out the opening reception at What’s on 2nd? for the exhibit “Lyrics of Color” by Java Lewis. Before the birth of my wonderful kid, I could frequent bars more often. At one of my favorite bars in town, Metro Bistro, I bought a few beers for Java. I like his stuff. I can’t wait to see what’s in the exhibit. The reception is from 5:30-9 p.m. You can find the store at 2306 2nd Ave. North. Tim Hollis, author of “Vintage Birmingham Signs” will also be present, ready to dedicate a book to you. Book and art will cost you, but it’s FREE to look.
