The Theatre District is the location for two awesome “after five” events this week. First up: Birmingham Art Crawl this Thursday evening (TODAY!) at its new home at the Pizitz Building from 5-9. Make an evening of it… grab a bite at one of food stalls at the Pizitz Food Hall… (we may be biased but we recommend something from Tropicaleo at the Reveal kitchen!) and then enjoy the offerings of dozens of artists as well as music in the Food Hall Courtyard.
The Rainbow Viaduct, one of Birmingham’s oldest bridges, has been transporting people between the south and north sides of downtown for more than 130 years! Now as we look toward its future, you’ll see a pilot project on the bridge to make it more pedestrian and cyclist friendly while we determine the best next steps.
Are you a startup looking for a foot in the door? Did you know we have an accelerator program that helps founders begin their entrepreneurial journey right here in the Switch district? TechStars is a dynamic three-month program that empowers entrepreneurs in their quest to discover product-market fit, gain traction, and access both capital and global mentorship.

Amid the pandemic, when many found themselves at home searching for new hobbies, Josh Cosio and his wife embarked on a unique journey – roasting coffee at home.

Just two years after their inaugural batch of home-roasted beans, Cala Coffee has swiftly taken root, with not one but two locations opening in Birmingham.
