Hello, and welcome to Wrecktum, Alabama. Come join the fun as you meet the girls and guys at Curl Up and Dye Beauty Shop!
 Among those you'll meet is Verna Lou Bankhead, who was Tallulah's second cousin twice removed. Verna Lou owns the shop and there is not one person or one thing that goes on in Wrecktum that she is not aware of. At Curl Up and Dye, every day, between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m., the shop is the hottest spot in town! They have happy hour with lots of moonshine, homemade Muscadine wine and juicy gossip.
 The constable and mayor of Wrecktum have tried to shut them down lots of times because, as you must know, this is a dry county! But actually, it is just a front because the guys just like to get in there and join in the fun. After running in, waving their guns and threatening to shut it down, the girls have them sit a spell, hand them a drink and everyone just blends in until the Constable's wife comes running in and drags him out by his ear.
The big news is that the mayor has sold the entire downtown area to a big developer from New Orleans! The plan is to bulldoze the entire end of town and put in the South's biggest medical marijuana superstore warehouse called “Get Your Buzz On” and they are even going to build a casino!! The mayor is excited about the number of traffic tickets he'll be able to cash in on! To make things worse, at the end of the strip, they are planning to build a high-end club with gorgeous people performing 24/7! Men and women! Something for everybody!
When this news gets out, tempers flare and plans are made for revenge and someone ends up dead! Come on down and see if you can help solve this backwoods, hillbilly murder!

Advanced reservations are required. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., the evening begins at 7 p.m. Price includes:

2018 Bald Eagle Bash

04/21/201804/21/2018
11401 U.S. 98, Fairhope, AL 36532

Are you ready for the Party for Preservation? What better way to cap off Earth Day than watching the sunset over Weeks Bay while enjoying fresh local seafood and listening to awesome local music for a great cause? The 9th annual Bald Eagle Bash, set for April 21 from 4-7 p.m., at the Tonsmeire Weeks Bay Resource Center, is the Weeks Bay Foundation’s largest event, raising funds to restore vulnerable coastline, protect wildlife and educate folks about how they can help ensure we have clean water.

This “taste of Weeks Bay” brings more than a dozen area restaurants together to create dishes based on delicious Gulf shrimp. From fried shrimp, to stuffed shrimp, to shrimp and grits, shrimp ceviche, and jalapeno shrimp sliders, each chef prepares a signature dish that is sure to delight all participants.
And while seafood is the main attraction, the local music is always a big draw.

This year, for the first time, Johnny Hayes and the LoveSeats will take the stage. Mobile’s own Johnny Hayes spent time in Nashville, where he learned to play and write with some of the country’s most talented artists and songwriters. He started his band in 2013, and they quickly gained popularity across the southeast, playing a unique array of covers from James Brown, Otis Redding, The Band, and many others, mixed with their own blues and soul-influenced originals.

Johnny eventually landed an audition on season 11 of NBC’s The Voice, but received no chair turns and no chance to advance in the competition. When he was given one more shot to audition for season 12, however, Johnny’s rendition of Otis Redding’s classic “Try a Little Tenderness” caught the attention of Gwen Stefani and Adam Levine and a spot on Team Adam, where he advanced to the top 24. This gained him much exposure to millions of viewers and new fans across the world.

Today, the band is busy touring and promoting their debut self-titled album, and presenting their unique brand of rock n’ soul music smothered in southern charm, keeping their audiences craving more with originals such as “Sweet Salvation” and the crowd favorite “Straight from the Bottle.”

In addition to the seafood and music, several area restaurants will be serving delectable desserts, while local brewer Fairhope Brewing will introduce a new signature specially for “The Bash.”

“The Bald Eagle Bash is a great family friendly event that showcases local seafood and local musical talent in a setting that cannot be beat.” Ellis Allen, Weeks Bay Foundation Board Chairman said. Many attendees come by boat and families fish off the pier while everybody enjoys the food, the music and the sunset.”The 2017 Bash had a record 16 restaurants participating and more than 1,300 attendees.

Closer to the event, tickets will be available through this website and at several local outlets. Tickets are $45 in advance and $50 at the gate. Children 10 and under are free. Free parking is available at the Weeks Bay Foundation site, with BRATS shuttles providing transportation to the event.

Flow Tribe
Few bands arouse a crowd into a collective shake like Flow Tribe. The six-member band's onstage chemisty reflects a seamless combination of soul and movement that hits the audience within the first few notes. Virgin listeners and avid fans alike are drawn in by the distinctive sound that feels both familiar and original. Outfitted for each performance in colorful, carefully selected suits, it's clear their focus is sharp and the party has begun. This is the work of professional musicians who've found their passion, and are living a dream where everyone is welcome.

Yellowhammer
Mobile Musician All-Star Band fronted by Ben Jernigan. Yellowhammer brings southern Funk and Soul to the stage one guitar lick at a time. Yellowhammer have caused a sitr in their local stomping grounds in the few short months since their creation and are sure to bring the heat to Lucy Buffet's LuLu's in Gulf Shores for their debut set at LuLuPalooza this Memorial Day weekend.
 
Adam Holt
Adam Holt has made a living playing in bars since before he was old enough to be in a bar. He's carved his own solid niche on the Gulf Coast with his live shows, his original music, and his southern hospitality. Take some Alabama red clay rock and roll, Mississippi Blues, New Orleans gumbo funk, and Tennessee country, throw in such varied influences as British blues invasion, psychedelic rock, and 80's hair metal, then stir it up in a Gibson Les Paul and turn it up to eleven! From Robert Johnson to Dr. John to Tom Petty to Van Halen, Peter Frampton to Led Zeppelin, Adam's varied influences make a mean fuel for the engine of his unique style, and he's charting his own musical course.

The 31st Annual Alabama Coastal Cleanup

09/15/201809/15/2018

Always the 3rd Saturday of September, Alabama Coastal Cleanup, the state's largest one-day volunteer event, returns for its 30th year on Saturday, September 16. Residents, visitors, individuals and organizations are invited to “get the trash out of the splash” by picking up trash littering Alabama coasts and waterways from 8 a.m. to noon. Volunteers are needed on foot and on water.

An exciting addition to this year’s 30th annual cleanup will be an effort to incorporate enhanced recycling opportunities for trash collected during the cleanup event. Alabama Coastal Cleanup, with support from Weeks Bay Foundation, Thompson Engineering, and Alabama Coastal Foundation, will partner with the TerraCycle Company to provide plastics recycling at cleanup zones. TerraCycle offers free recycling programs funded by brands, manufacturers, and retailers around the world to help collect and recycle hard-to-recycle waste, such as washed-up trash found along beaches and shorelines.
Given the recent recognition of the harmful effects of marine debris in the environment, it is important to remove and recycle plastics from waterways.

In 2016, over 4,200 volunteers collected close to 36,700 pounds of trash from cleanup sites located from Gulf Shores to Dauphin Island. Since trash totals were collected at the first Alabama Coastal Cleanup in 1987, more than 1.6 million pounds of trash have been collected and disposed of properly. Volunteers are needed at 30 different cleanup sites in Mobile and Baldwin counties. Alabama Coastal Cleanup provides a t-shirt and clean up supplies to participants who collect trash.

A 40-year tradition, the festival is a major regional event that attracts a cross section of the community in what has become a reunion type atmosphere. It is also the main revenue source for the area’s volunteer fire department.

Festival fans can enjoy Elberta's famous German sausage and sauerkraut, plus continuous entertainment
for adults and children, and 250 arts & crafts booths. There will also be carnival rides and a full scale Midway. Of course, there will also be a Bier Garten featuring a large selection of imported and domestic beers.

The festival is held twice a year - on the last Saturday of March and the last Saturday of October.

Started in 2006, the founding members of the Mirams, according to the group's web site, "wanted to start a women's krewe that would be able to parade and ball in a HUGE style."

The group puts on the only family friendly, women's nighttime parade on Pleasure Island.

According to the written history of the Mystics of Pleasure, "while overlooking the Marina on Cotton Bayou and watching the sun set on a glorious April evening, a group of men planned what was to become ... Pleasure Island's very first nighttime Mardi Gras parading society."
By Carnival of 2001, the Mystics of Pleasure held its first ball and Mardi Gras parade in Orange Beach. Unlike parading groups to the west, marshals with the Mystics of Pleasure ride Harley-Davidsons, not horses.
The group also sponsored the Thunder Run boating event every year.

A year later the Mystic Order of Shiners joined the Pleasure Island Players to become what is now the oldest parading order in Baldwin County.

The parade will start at the intersection of Highway 59 and Highway 182 and roll east along Highway 182 (East Beach Blvd.) to Highway 135 at the Gulf State Park Pier.

The Orange Beach Parade started way back when as a loose confederation of groups, large and small, that wanted to parade by the beach.

About 10 years ago, the city of Orange Beach stepped in and took over the planning of the parade. It's still open to participation by just about anybody, even groups from outside of Orange Beach.

The Mystical Maids of Miram and the Mystics of Pleasure contribute to the parade, but so do groups from Foley to Perdido Key. Even groups that parade in Gulf Shores earlier in the day move up the road to be in the Orange Beach procession.

Typically, these days, there's about 55 units in the Fat Tuesday afternoon parade, and about 30,000 people gather along the two-mile stretch of Perdido Beach Boulevard to stand in the rain of throws.
