For those who are relatively new to Birmingham (as well as the old-timers), there is a great event going on this weekend downtown that Hounds shouldn't miss.
It's Corks and Chefs, part of the Art in the Park event downtown in Linn Park. Corks and Chefs features chefs from 8-10 locally owned restaurants and local caterers, who serve samples of some mighty fine food (carnitas tamales from Cantina/Sol y Luna and a smoked duck and greens gumbo by The Veranda, to name a couple).
Local wine distributors also pour samples (which is where people tend to hang out) from their portfolios.
Some of the restaurants set up on Saturday and others on Sunday. A list of who is serving what and when is here:
It's a good chance to sample food from favorite restaurants and to make some new discoveries.
Check it out, browse the park and enjoy the art and graze your way through some of Birmingham's best food.
