Le Tour de Ham is back every Tuesday!
Le Tour de Ham is back at Silvertron Cafe' for the winter. The ride starts and ends every Tuesday in the old V. Richards parking lot across from Naked Art Gallery. There is construction and there will be some equipment in the parking area, but riders have been welcomed to use the lot! Special thanks to Shindigs Catering!
Ride will still roll out at 6:15. It will be dark. Front and rear lights required!
All riders will enjoy a 10% discount on food at Silvertron' Cafe after the ride!
Whisting Table, the soon to be brick and mortar version of the Shindigs food truck will move in the former VRichards location (estimated date: December).
Construction began in August and has shown no sign of interruption.
The restaurant will features organic and locally sourced dishes and a "grab and go" market area!
The former Full Circle space, previously occupied by Maralyn Wilson Gallery has changed hands... and may be another space for art in the future!
*Tips for good.
Guest bartenders this Friday night will be David Morris and Emily Johnson. 100% of tips will benefit Birmingham Loves The Steins: Kathy and Greg Stein have done so much for the Birmingham community, giving almost all their free time to great organizations including Monday Runday and Big Benefit. Several months ago they sold and gave away everything they owned to open a restaurant on St John, United States Virgin Islands, one of the places that got hit full blast by the category 5 hurricane.
Find more here about the fundraiser their family and friends are putting together to help them rebuild their life. Any tiny amount will make a difference.
