Vulcan Park and Museum and the newly-formed Five Points Alliance are coming together to bring Birmingham a fantastic new culinary and cultural event! A Taste of Five Points, presented by Alagasco, will take place at Vulcan Park and Museum on Tuesday, May 16th from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
This event will celebrate the neighborhood’s 130th anniversary and mark the end of the exhibit Patience, People, and the Plan: The Revitalization of Five Points South, currently on display in the Linn-Henley Gallery at Vulcan Park and Museum.
Participating vendors include: Alexander Eton, Black Market Bar & Grill, Bottega, Buck Mulligan’s, Charlemagne Records, Chick-Fil-A, Dave’s Pub, Delta Blues, Dreamland BBQ, Good People Brewing Co., IIIs, Jim-N-Nicks, Little Italy, Orbit Salon, Pho Pho, Rucker Place / Savoie Catering, Starbucks, T-Bones, The Hotel Highland, The J. Clyde, the UPS Store, and Zydeco.
“The idea behind this event is to shed light on all that the Five Points South neighborhood has to offer, not just culinary,” said Morgan Berney Black, Director of Marketing & Public Relations at Vulcan Park and Museum. “Guests will get a taste of all of it and experience the best of landmark culinary hot-spots, trendy retail, and lively entertainment.”
At the event, a specialty Five Points cocktail will be revealed thanks to Dave’s Pub and Jose Cuervo Tradicional.
Advanced tickets are $30 for an individual and $50 for a couple. These are available for purchase at the Vulcan Park and Museum Website! At the gate, single tickets will be $35 and couple tickets will be $55. Each ticket holder will receive a coupon for a complimentary beer from Good People Brewing Company.
A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit the new master plan project underway by the Five Points Alliance.
Additional support for this inaugural event is provided by Michael and Barvette Patterson, Commute Smart, 97.3 Play, Alabama Outdoors, Birmingham Coca-Cola Bottling Company, Birmingham Mountain Radio, ZeeKee Interactive, and REV Birmingham.

This Sunday, a group of volunteers will embark on a façade improvement project at The Shop on 1st Avenue – cleaning and painting the outside of the building.
From the terrazzo floors to the alley mural, the New Ideal building is full of history, and its redevelopment is sure to bring even more vibrancy to the already bustling block it shares with The Pizitz. Here are three reasons we are excited about the New Ideal Lofts project – and we hope it makes you say #YayBham too!
Come join Young Pioneers of Birmingham, in support of REV Birmingham, for coffee and doughnuts with Bill Smith of Shipt and David Fleming of REV on Thursday, July 19 at 7:30 a.m. at Shipt HQ!
