Y’all Connect Presented by Alabama Power is a summer conference. It only makes sense that we tout the virtues of Birmingham in the winter.

Actually, we’re overdue for talking about our wonderful city. We do want you to visit, whether for our event or for any other excuse.

Alton Brown Andrew ZimmernAlton Brown stopped by recently for a show, but took in some good eats, including satisfying sweets as posted on his blog a few days ago. Andrew Zimmern came in 2013 and still remembers his trip to Miss Myra’s Pit Bar-B-Q, which he shared in the current issue of Delta Sky Magazine.

But we have great food year round. Let us share the sights and joys of Christmas …
