The city of Birmingham’s summer food and drink series starts today

Magic City Sips is Birmingham’s Department of Innovation and Economic Opportunity first-ever food and drink series. Nine local bars and restaurants will host their own happy hour specials from 4 to 7 p.m. every Wednesday. Participating businesses include The Fennec.

The series culminates in a voting competition among patrons starting in August. The business with the most votes will be rewarded with the Sippy Cup Award in September, which is based on scores in various categories including Best Cocktail, Best Happy Hour Appetizer and Best Vibe.
