I kept meaning to do a Weekend in Review post, but life got in the way. Anyhoo, first up last Friday, the Hubs and I took in a baseball game at the all new Regions Field that is now downtown. I had been wanting to check out the Todd English Pub that is in the all new Uptown Distric (downtown, I guess they got that from Charlotte, NC). The funny thing is my husband has been several times and just that day he had lunch there, but since I had been wanting to go, he went again. And that place was just like Cheers, everyone knows your name! LOL We ran into so many people. That’s what happens in Birmingham, new spots open and we all gravitate to them. The food was great and I would definitely go back.
After dinner we headed to the ball park. I’m not a baseball fan at all, but my husband wanted to go and I won *wink* tickets from work. We always have giveaways for the games, so when they announced it, I just put my name in and wouldn’t you know, I won! It pays to work in HR! It was cool out that night and one of my coworkers told me to take a blanket. I’m so glad I did. The Barons won the game and since it was a Friday night game, we stayed for the fireworks after.

Saturday I had my Beauty is Pain ritual, threading and waxing and then I stopped and grabbed us some lunch from Zoes Kitchen. This is my fav meal there:
Chicken Salad and Fruit Plate
Later that night, I went to Seasons 52 for my girlfriend’s birthday dinner. And I changed up from my usual order and tried the Salmon. I’ve decided I’m going to stick with the Scallops. Love them! Here are a few of the pics from her dinner. Seasons 52 just opened here last month, but I’ve been a fan for years, since they first opened when I lived in ATL.

My husband and I had a Saturday date Easter Weekend and took in the movie Temptation instead of going on our usual Sunday and we had a great meal on our first visit to the new Birmingham location.
Happy to dine at Seasons 52

Then on this past Monday, I had the pleasure of taking in a FREE99 concert with the talented, Grammy winning jazz singer and bassist, Esperanza Spalding! She was fabulous!

Her appearance was sponsored by the UAB College of Arts and Sciences and is a part of yearlong celebrations as Birmingham marks the 50th year anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement.
I hope you’ve enjoyed catching up with me! What’s going on with you?
