On a seemingly endless hot streak up the ladder of standup success, comedian [Hannibal Buress](http://hannibalhannibal.tumblr.com) takes the stage to disarm audiences with charisma, a reposed demeanor, and the timing of a safe-cracker with a necklace of sports watches. Chicago native Buress has burrowed into the ear-homes of millions with his winning humor and notable work as a writer on comedy mainstays such as Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock. His unpredictable stage routine strikes with relatable observational humor delivered with deadpan precision. Heating up the stage for Buress are Christopher Davis and Tony Trimm, a.k.a. "Secret Asian Man." After the show, ticket-holders have access to a party featuring DJ Rashido, where they can dance to a mix of left-field and indie hip-hop.
Iron City Birmingham
If it were possible, patrons of Iron City Birmingham would be requesting permanent citizenship. The massive entertainment complex, which still has that "new massive entertainment complex" smell, is 22,000 square feet and $6 million worth of everything people leave the house for. Luxurious, but with an industrial appeal, the two-story fortress tickles the eyes with skylights and warm earth tones, all fortified by lustrous stone and woodwork. One region of the complex houses the Iron City Grill, where diners enjoy a white-tablecloth experience while indulging in the latest catches from Alabama Gulf Seafood and organic grub culled from local farmers. Nearby, three concert stages and two bars help ward off doldrums with a non-stop lineup of live entertainment—the main event center hosting touring rock concerts, while the two smaller stages spotlight local acts.
