A MUST for All Birminghamians: Birmingham Menus! And a Giveaway!!!


Birmingham Menus is simply an amazing operation. If you don't know about it, you need to check it out!! They compile all of the menus and restaurant information for the independently owned restaurants in Birmingham. Which, of course, include ALL of the BEST restaurants in town!

But they offer much more than that. They have a quarterly discount gift certificate sales where you can buy a $20 GC for only $12, a $25 GC for only $15, and a $50 GC for only $33. This is an AWESOME deal if you already go to these restaurants like we do! We stock up on them and save TONS of money .

I have eagerly participated in these sales every quarter for years. We eat out a lot, and since all of our favorite restaurants participate, we're able to save a lot of money by buying through Birmingham Menus. This past quarter I saved nearly $100!

They also offer an awesome gift idea: Group Gift Certificates. These certificates are good for any of 32 different independently owned restaurants in Birmingham, so you can't go wrong by getting someone a certificate that is good at 32 of the best restaurants in town!

They just launched a brand new website that has great features and is really easy to maneuver - go check it out!! They are also now on Twitter, and are doing periodic Twitter giveaways - this week they gave away a $200 gift certificate!!!! So you definitely want to follow them for some awesome chances to win.

However, in the meantime, I have two $25 gift certificates to give away!!!

Here's how to enter: Go to their website and then come back here and comment which of the restaurants listed is your favorite.

1. Being a subscriber or a follower of Alabama Bloggers
