Last night, we had a great time in our community, getting together in the "zen garden" (or courtyard, or whatever you want to call it ;) to learn a little bit about mixology from the incredibly talented and charming owner of Tavern on 1st, Matt Campbell. (Like them on Facebook!) The bar is located downtown on 1st Ave North, and offers exceptional service and drinks with fascinating images of Birmingham's past, which they acquired from the library archives. They left their beautiful space to come enjoy our own, give us free t-shirts and teach us how to make a remarkable Old Fashioned! It was fun to see folks line up and create their own beverage. Matt and his barman also told us about how the bar came into being, taught us about "shrubs" and let us try their own homemade peach and pineapple versions.
It was a wonderful evening of getting to know more neighbors, and getting to enjoy more time with those we already know. Thank you to everyone who came out to enjoy the evening with us, and especially to Tavern on 1st!
