  • Birmingham Museum of Art
    Oscar's treats locals to seasonal fare from a calm spot at the Birmingham Museum of Art. The restaurant's produce hails from nearby local vendors, including the Jones Valley Urban Farm, and emerges from the kitchen in various, artfully appetizing ways. Seasonal starters include warm butternut-and-leek gratin with dipping croutons ($6) and the Remington salad, a gathering of mixed greens, roasted beets, grilled red onions, and sliced beef tenderloin ($12). Sandwiches also beef up the menu, including grainy stars such as the smoked turkey reubenesque, which ties together turkey, fontina cheese, and creamy jalapeno slaw inside an unknotted tandem of freshly baked rye ($10.50).

  • ReptiDay
    Snakes slither in glass display cases, and lizards wriggle in the hands of trained handlers as they're held up in full view of a curious crowd. This is the scene as one of Repticon's presenters educates attendees on the biology, behavior, and typing speeds of exotic cold-blooded creatures at one of the year-round shows held in cities across the country. Reptile and amphibian breeders, scholars, and handlers engage audiences in lectures and demonstrations in the midst of live reptile exhibits, family activities, and displays for exotic-pet supplies. Presentations may focus on the genetics of large snake species, the specifics of exotic-pet care, and the effect that tiny hats have on the image of arachnids such as tarantulas, scorpions, and spiders.

By 1988, he had begun collecting and restoring classic and vintage sports cars, and his acquisitions soon spilled into motorcycles. His fleet eventually became the Barber Collection and the defacto garage for his own vintage-motorcycle racing team. Today, Barber's Collection has become a full non-profit motorsports museum that has shared its pieces at exhibitions at the Guggenheim in Spain, the Field Museum in Chicago, and the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England.

  • Kentuck Art Center and Museum
    While meandering past more than 250 exhibitors, guests of the Kentuck Festival of the Arts can peruse artful wares during the weekend-long exploration of visual arts, music, and food. From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, the festival welcomes visitors to amble under a canopy of trees and feast eyes on artisans' endeavors in blacksmithing, split-oak basketry, pottery, colorful found-object sculpture, and accounting. Live music flutters about the festival from eight bands across two stages, delighting ears with surging gospel choirs and twangy country singers. Taste buds, too, bask in artistic attention, salivating over Cajun fare or saucy ribs, or mistaking a still-life gyro for its edible muse.
