    What do you get when you cross a fabulous meal at The Palm and an exclusive performance by the quirky, soulful sounds of American Idol winner Taylor Hicks? You get Palm Night. For one night only, The Palm restaurant is closed to the public and plays host to The Family Center's annual gala to raise funds to support their efforts against child abuse and neglect. To attend this evening of great food and music, become a sponsor with a charitable donation. January 26, The Palm Restaurant, SouthPark

    The Forge chosen as name for Birmingham entertainment district - American Idols Hicks & Studdard To Open Clubs in Downtown Venue - Press Release

    BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Birmingham's downtown entertainment district will be called The Forge, a name that links the city's past with its future.
    The $40 million district, which includes clubs, restaurants, and shops, is being developed by Performa Entertainment Real Estate in partnership with the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex (BJCC). Alabama American Idols Taylor Hicks and Ruben Studdard each plan to open a club in The Forge.
    The name was announced by Performa CEO John Elkington and BJCC Executive Director Jack Fields. "We wanted a name with historic associations for Birmingham," said Elkington, "and that also suggested a new era for entertainment. We think The Forge fits perfectly."
    The Forge recalls the city's roots as an iron and steelmaking town. Vulcan, the Roman god of the forge, is the city's symbol. "We want the new entertainment district to be like the statue of Vulcan," said Fields, "something that brands Birmingham to the public."
    The name also meets the criteria of being short, easy to remember and adaptable to marketing. "Like its namesake, The Forge will generate sparks," Elkington said. "I can see the ads now - "Forge some fun," "Hot times at The Forge."
    The clubs with Hicks and Studdard reflect the local flavor that will make the development distinctive. Other tenants who have signed letters of intent or leases include Rhythm & Brews, Iron City Saloon, Bluesboro, Wet Willie's, Sleep Out Louie's, Mesquite Chop House and Wow Cafe & Wingery. More than 50 per cent of the 136,000 square feet in the district has been pre-leased.
    Elkington and Fields said The Forge is on schedule to bring new entertainment options downtown. "We are excited at the plans, at the list of prospective tenants, and by the name," said Fields. "We believe The Forge will help create a new identity for Birmingham as a destination." For more information, visit forgebirmingham.com .

    The Forge? Good grief, is that the best they could do?

    I wonder if Taylor is going to be able to sing? It would be great if he sang the national anthem, or at least entertained before game, although seeing Taylor in basketball shorts is worth the ticket price.
