As the day grew warmer, the crowd grew larger at the second annual Slice Fest in Birmingham, Alabama. Fun activities for the kiddos and deliciously spectacular pizza from Slice are just two things that set SliceFest above all the rest.

In addition to the awesome refreshments and fabulous food, the rocking hot bands made the day fly by with stage stompin’ excitement! Live performances by headlining band JJ Grey & Mofro, Ponderosa, Rollin’ in the Hay, Banditos, Bad Brad & the Sipsey Slims, Wildflowers, Ophelia, and Festival Expressions were the icing on this festive cake—or shall I say the toppings on the pizza?

If you did not think it could get better than divinely fresh stone pizzas, local brews, and live music, then think again. SliceFest 2013 partnered with local charities, Alabama Forever and Suki Foundation, to donate a portion of the festivals proceeds to great these causes.  Fun and a good deed!  Yes, yes, indeed.

SliceFest Sponsors included: Birmingham Budweiser, BB&T, Birmingham Mountain Radio, City of Birmingham, Cocoa-Cola, happy Family, Kassouf & Co., Mancha Hardscapes, and Super Deal.

Weekly Whistle: Sweet Tea, Stranger, & John Lennon


This week’s Weekly Whistle title was a  struggle.  98.79% of the time I believe that I come up with clever titles.  Frustrated and suffering from writer’s block–I grabbed my sunglasses and a glass of Milo’s sweet tea and went outside to lounge by the pool.


After an hour and almost falling asleep, the title came to me!  I remembered a comment a nice stranger (not stranger danger–don’t worry, mom!) said to me–“I love your sunnies! Very John Lennon.”  To which I replied, “Thanks so much!” and then continued to walk to my car…thankful that I was not recognized as “The VIP”.  Who would have thought that sunburn and sunglasses would make such a great disguise?  Anyway…long story short, that comment from the lovely stranger inspired today’s title.  Thank you, kind stranger!

Now, that is enough chatting and story telling! It is time to see what the VIP’s outfit of the week is–Come on, fashionistas!
