Happy Spring Break, everyone! Not surprisingly, it’s kind of a slow-ish week here in T-Town, what with half the population very likely at, or headed to, the beach, Disney World, the mountains, etc. For those of us who remain behind, it’s actually a great week…nice and quiet. Take advantage of it – maybe check out that new restaurant that’s always so crowded when everyone is in town? Or see a movie! For St. Patty’s Day, head to Innisfree or another area watering hole to toast to the Irish.

The Tuscaloosa Amphitheater’s upcoming season is about to get underway, and now a new show has just been added – one that will no doubt get the attention of lots of Druid City Living’s readers.

The “I Love the 90s” tour will hit T-Town on May 20, featuring a lot of very well-known acts who had huge hit songs during the decade: Salt N Pepa, Vanilla Ice, Color Me Badd, All-4-One, Coolio and Young MC.

Tuscaloosa Arts & Entertainment Manager Christy Bobo says everyone is getting ready for a great season.

The Tuscaloosa City Council on Tuesday evening voted in favor of a resolution to establish an entertainment district in downtown Tuscaloosa – at least for one day.

The Tuscaloosa Tourism and Sports Commission, led by Gina Simpson, had requested that a formal Entertainment District be established on April 9 – coinciding with the Druid City Arts Festival (DCAF), which is scheduled for that day in Government Plaza.

Hundreds of people are expected to raise more than $14,800 to stop multiple sclerosis in its tracks, restore what has been lost and end MS forever at the Annual Walk MS: West Alabama taking place Feb. 27 at a new location—the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater. Walk MS is an opportunity for people living with MS and those who care about them to connect, be inspired and raise critical funds for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

“We are thrilled to be holding Walk MS: West Alabama at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater this year,” said Deanna Deschenes, Development Manager with the National MS Society. “Holding the walk in this new location will allow us to reach an even greater number of people. The more people that join us in the walk, the closer we get to finding a cure. It’s encouraging to watch the movement grow.”

Here’s wishing all our Druid City Living readers a great week, filled with all kinds of outstanding local events. Get out, get involved, and above all else: Have fun.
