If you’re looking for a wonderful Birmingham weekend, look no further than Pepper Place.

StyleBlueprint asked three Birmingham couples to put together their ideal Magic City weekend. According to Scott and Shae Register, Friday and Saturday are all about Pepper Place:

We’d kick Friday off with dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. Depending on our mood, there’s always something to satisfy our cravings. Indian? Let’s head to Silver Coin in Hoover. Asian? Bamboo on 2nd downtown or Red Pearl in Homewood. Italian? Bettola in Pepper Place. Burgers? Twisted Root in Vestavia. Can’t make up our minds? We head to The Pizitz and take our pick of cuisine. Birmingham boasts such an amazing restaurant scene — I could go on and on, but you get the picture. We’d follow dinner up with a show at one of the many fine music venues in town. Birmingham is lucky to have a quality venue to host about any size show that comes to town. From house concerts to theaters to music halls, concert halls and arenas, not a weekend goes by that there aren’t quality musical acts in town to see and hear.

Saturday would start off early at the Pepper Place Market — so much to see and do at the market, and it’s a great way to get up and get going. The sense of community at this market excites us every time we are there. Next up, we’d stop by Hop City for a beer or two in Growlertown, a must for all craft beer lovers. We’d head from there to lunch at Bottega Café — we love Saturday lunch at this spot. Then, we would do a brewery crawl to any of Birmingham’s fine breweries. Once again, we are truly lucky to have so many quality breweries in our city. Their beers and scenes are each unique and attractive.
