Two years ago this November, the team behind Shu Shop, a Japanese casual ramen bar, took the stage (and a share of the prize money) at THE BIG PITCH presented by PNC. Last week, they officially opened to much fanfare in the heart of downtown’s Theatre District on 3rd Avenue, directly across from the Alabama Theatre. Join us in celebrating their success and their contribution to a rapidly expanding culinary landscape in Birmingham. For more information, visit the Shu Shop online by clicking here!
And remember to save the date for the 2017 BIG PITCH on November 18th. If you’re interested in competing and discovering how REV Birmingham can help take a business idea from concept to creation, visit our BIZ GROWTH web page to find out more.
This Friday, May 20th, we will be having a (20th) Street Party (which you can read more about here) to celebrate the end of our Birmingham Green Refresh! While this certainly calls for a celebration, the party doesn’t stop there. We will still be adding some finishing touches to the street after the (20th) Street Party. These additional touches will help make Birmingham’s main street more vibrant, interactive, and efficient! Additions will include smart trash cans, free libraries, street performers, and more!
We’ve talked about sports, but downtown has so much more to offer! Downtown Birmingham has so many experiences in store for you, which can also turn into life-long memories. And lucky for you, we’ve created a tool to make all that exploring so much easier!
We are approaching the finish line for the 20th Street Refresh, which calls for a celebration – and you’re invited! The City Center Business Improvement District (BID), funded by downtown property owners, is partnering with the City of Birmingham and REV Birmingham to celebrate a refreshed Birmingham Green. Come join the party on May 20th from 4 to 8 p.m (with a special celebration happening at 6 p.m.)!
