      I walked around a bit down there but the website said it was sold out around 1:30 so I didn't even try to get in.

        I went...my 3rd year in a row going. I love this event. I like to get there early and walk around and look at the art while I build up an appetite and a thirst. Even though it is some of Birmingham's top restaurants the food isn't exactly a representation of what they normally do since it has to be something that can be transported and served from a tent for 4 hours. But, overall, it is pretty good. Yesterdays winners IMHO were the Veranda on Highland, Ocean, 26 and the Culinard. All did a very good job!

        There were also a lot of good wines and some beers there also. I really enjoyed the Prosecco that Grassroots wine company was serving and the Valpolicella and Shiraz that International wines were pouring. Overall a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon in Birmingham.
