Wherefore Art Thou Tuscaloosa?

This weekend is overflowing with events in the One and Only Tuscaloosa! Starting tonight and lasting all weekend long, you can catch some incredible artists at Druid City Music Hall! Starting with Elephante on Thursday, you can catch him, CBDB, and Muscatine Bloodline each night following!

On Friday, you can catch the American Shakespeare Center at the Bama Theatre while they’re on tour presenting “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare! While they’re in Tuscaloosa, you can also catch one of their showings of “The Two Gentlemen of Verona”!

If theater makes you hungry, you’re in luck! Saturday is the 11th Annual Great Tuscaloosa Chili Cookoff! You can enter a chili heaven as 35 teams compete for coveted trophies for Best Chili and Best Costume, Booth, and Showmanship. Chili sampling, live music by Angela Hamiter & the Able Brothers and Robert Morgan, children’s activities, free cheese biscuits and free ice cream, and valuable drawing prizes including a large HDTV will all be on the chopping block for this incredible event!

If a Chili Cookoff isn’t enough to warrant an incredible Saturday, Rhythm & Brews is hosting the Alabama State Arm Wrestling Championship! After you eat your chili you can wash it down with a cold brew as you watch the strongest men and women in Alabama battle it out for the arm wrestling title!

Finally, have some fun with the kids as the Children’s Hands-On Museum hosts the Mad Hatter’s “Southern” Tea Party on Saturday. You never know who you’ll run into in Wonderland! The children can sample southern treats, knave of hearts tarts and tea sandwiches! Try not to lose your head while playing flamingo croquet with the Queen of Hearts and craft your own “Mad Hatter” hat!
