Pints, Paintings, and Point Guards in Tuscaloosa this Weekend
The Tide has turned, and football season in Tuscaloosa is over, but there is still plenty to do in Tuscaloosa! This weekend you can get a laugh in at Druid City Brewing Company’s BrewHaHa, discover something new at Kentuck’s Art Night, cheer on the Crimson Tide as they take on Stephen F. Austin, and tour our art galleries and studios downtown! We also have a few bonus events at the bottom of this email.
Druid City Brewing Company BrewHaHa: Featuring Reggie Junior
It’s time for one last BrewHaHa Showcase of 2019. Its been an amazing year for Tuscaloosa comedy and this BrewHaHa we bring you one of the most painfully and relentlessly hilarious comics around. Reggie Junior is a Memphis comic with an incredible talent for picking apart a room and making his audience wrench with laughter. Have some fun with Reggie along with some local Tuscaloosa and Birmingham comics like Zach Travis, Paige McBride, Mario Carreras, and making their BrewHaHa debuts Tyler Cooper and Brooks Bell. All hosted by Richard Lockhart. This will be a very fun show. So enjoy the longest-running show in Tuscaloosa and the birthplace of Stand Up Tuscaloosa.
Kentuck Art Night
Join Kentuck for the finale of their Year of Alabama Artists! This month they will be featuring “Energy” by Kentuck’s 12 Studio Artists, open artists’ studios, live music from Will McClelland, StoryTangle, extended Gallery Shop hours, pop up shops, and more! A curious addition to Kentuck’s universe is StoryTangle. StoryTangle is an experimental immersive arts space at Kentuck Art Center open on weekends in November. When you enter the space, YOU become part of the exhibit. YOUR JOB, as a participating part of the exhibit, is to search the art for clues to the catastrophe. Explore, discover, and create your personal experience within the exhibition.
First Friday Art Walk
The holiday season is operating full steam ahead, but you can take a break from the hustle and bustle of holiday preparations and enjoy all that Tuscaloosa has to offer with an art walk in downtown Tuscaloosa. There is an incredible lineup of featured artists spread out around town including Jerry Siegel and Lorrie Lane. Free and open to everyone, this event celebrates our thriving art scene with a great focus on staying local for a fun night out. Come to see all the new and continuing galleries and shows at places like the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center or Paul R. Jones Museum.
Alabama Basketball vs Stephen F. Austin
The men’s basketball team is taking on Stephen F. Austin on Friday night in what should be an electric matchup. After bursting onto the scene with a major upset against Duke, Stephen F. Austin is looking to continue on that success in Tuscaloosa. A year ago, the Crimson Tide beat the Lumberjacks 79-69 in front of a sold-out crowd in Nacogdoches, Texas. The first 1,000 fans will get a free t-shirt and there is a Toy Drive, Baby Reindeer Race, and more when they tip-off!
