Turnpike Troubadours at Druid City Music Hall

The Turnpike Troubadours will be in town on Friday night. Head to Druid City Music Hall to hear deep-rooted soul music that’s impossible to resist. We also hear that a video crew will be in attendance, so show up and show out if you want a chance to be featured in a Tuscaloosa Tourism video about the local music scene. The doors open at 7:30 pm and the music starts at 8:30 pm. It’s going to be a good time as Turnpike Troubadours always put on a great show, so visit to purchase tickets!

Pizza Party at CHOM!

The best kind of party is a pizza party. Spend your Saturday afternoon at the Children’s Hands-On Museum making a pizza hat, playing pizza games, sling-shotting pizza and best of all, sampling pizza!
