The Bottle Tree

The Bottle Tree on Birmingham's southside is just a great fun and funky place to have a drink, some good food and hear live entertainment.   Chef Tom Bagby is a dear family friend,  and he's known for his killer pimento cheese,  as well as some delectable sounding vegetarian dishes,  which I regret to report I've not tried.  It's also a photographer's paradise,  and there will be more photos in days to come.  Don't you just love this table and chairs???

Great composition! Love the colours... and the
Tabasco(?)! :-)

Virginia said...

JM,
The Tabasco is a staple in most places around here!HA

B2,
I've had the pimento cheese believe me and it's very good! I ihave not ventured into the vegetarian side of the menu yet but I will one day!

I love the light again, and Tabasco, but my favorite is your new banner! Je craque!

Bob Crowe said...

Gorgeous. The color and composition make me thing of Supremacist paintings.

By the way, I've been meaning to mention that you certainly have the cutest lineup of grandchildren in Dixie.

Oh, I understand now, Miss Virginia!

Y'all over there in the South (of France) gotta understand we bak here out yunder on de left edge or bank, well, sum of us our 1st language is Bark. And, our canine diet is often just french macaroons & croissants. So, ya see tat's how it's so ez for you southerners to get us dogs mixed up.

Luv that table, Miss Virgina 2009.

Babzy said...

I would like to have a table like this one ;)

D said...

I love the retro colors.
And of course, the hot sauce. It's funny that no matter what cuisine a restaurant in the south serves, there's probably hot sauce on the table. If not, you can ask for it and you'll receive.

FireLight said...

One more great place where we can hang out! Right, V?
I love the shapes and colors in this!

Dusty Lens said...

So colorful, love the bottle tree. I wish to post some table/chair sets as a return favor. But then I onder if they will be up to par with your shots.

Virginia said...

Fire Light, Oh you'll love this place for sure. It's just a hoot. We''ll do it when I get back home.

PLEASE bring on the table /chairs. I would be honored.

CO,
Mon chien, now you're talkin'. Croissants and macarons! Ohh lalal that's something to bark about for sure !

Bob,
Merci mon ami. They are delightful for sure.

Tom said...
