    Agreed. Nothing on the beer list really gets me super excited but there is plenty of solid options. Looking forward to Avondale's new sour. Love their Wild Saison and Birminghambic

    I'm not sure what to take from that article.
    Obviously, there is wealth inequality in this country. It's not something that is not endemic to the South.
    Did the author choose Birmingham because of the Civil Rights movement, coupled with the fact that these ladies are African American?
    We use a Mexican lady who has her own car, so my conscious is clear.

    Tried Little Donkey last night. Was solid but nothing special. Look forward to trying other things besides the steak tacos in the future. Any recommendations?

    I do not like little donkey's food at all. Always seems very bland/dry/tasteless to me. Cocktails are good though.

    El Barrio and Babalu both blow it away imo.

    It sounded really good. Was actually my backup plan. A lot of their food and the various tacos specifically sounded great.

    Villa Fiesta in Irondale and La Paz both have better composite ratings (between Google, Facebook, Yelp, and Urbanspoon) than Little Donkey. It is like a 3.6 whereas the other two are both 4.0.

    and la paz and little donkey are apples and oranges imo

    la paz caters to the brookie white haired crowd who likes spending 90$ on casual mexican, while little donkey attempts to be more modern and cater to millennials

    Agreed. Wasn't really comparing them for folks in this thread so much as I was comparing them with Villa Fiesta for my dear friend Deuce .

    Friday. Was just looking at the list, and it's kinda disappointing. A few of the local breweries aren't doing anything too special. Cask garden is usually my favorite part. It's always a good time either way.

    Went to my first game at Regions Field last night. Awesome.

    So damn many high school and college frat stars out there though not even watching the game.

    At least the overwhelming percentage of Hoover kids there is a little diluted now that it's downtown.

    Speaking of those Hoover fucks. I went to vecchia last night in Hoover and it had good pizza and a cool atmosphere. Not worth making the trip for but if you are over on that side of town it is a good option. Nice to see something original in a sea of chains.

    I had to go to hoover for an expert inspection of a roof in a construction case a few weeks ago. The building is in one of the real Mexican-y parts of Hoover, and there's a big lot of them who wait in the corner of that shopping center to get picked up for jobs. When I pulled my truck into the parking lot, like five of them took off running to me yelling "trabajo?" I felt kind of bad turning them down.
