Weekend Roundup: Oct. 24-27, 2019

Have a Howlin’ Good Halloween Weekend!



First things first! This post is a little later than usual because we spent all day yesterday moving to East Lake! While we are still living out of boxes for the moment, we are so grateful to Two Men & a Truck Bham for moving us across town! Two of our new neighbors already brought us some delicious soup and pound cake!
The move, however, won’t stop us from enjoying some great events! We are going to be costume contest judges for “Howls and Growls” at Haven and will be eating some delicious food at the Pig Iron BBQ cook-off benefiting Children’s Harbor! Check below for details and other fun events! Oh, and it's Magic City Classic Weekend, too!!!
