Eat in the Streets was launched in July as a way to allow patrons to actually dine at tables in the streets outside of their favorite restaurants while also socially distancing. Businesses and patrons have welcomed the concept, as it allows them to eat outdoors.
Eat in the Streets mask ordinance
A mask ordinance remains in effect for the whole state because of COVID-19. People are required to wear masks but may remove them to eat and drink at the outdoor tables and chairs. Carryout will also be available.
Eat in the Streets schedule for the rest of the year:
- Friday, Oct. 23 and Saturday, Oct. 24 – Downtown Birmingham restaurants in the 100 and 200 block of 20th Street North will host. Johnny Kulnich and Rick Carter will perform on Saturday, Oct. 24. Participating restaurants will include Zaza, Cafe Dupont, The Yard restaurant and Moon Shine rooftop bar at Elyton Hotel, Paramount, Bistro 218, Chocolata and Helen. Because these downtown restaurants are not in an entertainment district, patrons cannot carry open containers. They must consume alcoholic beverages from where they bought it.
- Friday, Oct. 30 and Saturday, Oct. 31 Avondale restaurants will host Eat in the Streets with a “Treat in the Streets” theme. Avondale times will be from 5 to 10:30 p.m. on Oct. 30 and switch to lunch and dinner for Oct. 31. Check with the restaurant for serving times on Saturday. Because these restaurants are in an entertainment district, patrons may carry open containers in the two-block area of the event. Forty-First Street South will be closed between First Avenue South and Third Avenue South.
- Nov. 6 and 7 Pepper Place will host Eat in the Streets on Nov. 6 and 7 with a “Day of Dead” theme.
