The Birmingham Public Library (BPL) and the Friends Foundation of the BPL are excited to announce Classic Cocktails, a kickoff party leading up to this year's Magic City Classic football game. Classic Cocktails will take place on Tuesday, October 25, 2022, from 5:30 to 9:00 p.m. at downtown's Central Library.

Whether you're a fan of Alabama A&M University or Alabama State University, BPL's premier Classic Cocktails fundraiser will be an evening to remember!

The event will feature a tasting of locally distilled spirits, music from DJ Chris Coleman of V94.9 FM, catered tailgate food, a cigar bar provided by Cigars & More, a 360 photo booth, a full-service cocktail bar, and more! Merchandise from the two rival HBCUs will also be available for purchase. 

A portion of the proceeds from Classic Cocktails will be awarded to the Birmingham Education Foundation (Ed) to fund student scholarships. Ed's mission is to increase the number of students in the Birmingham City School system that are on the path to college and careers, as well as to strengthen their life skills.

Remaining proceeds will help the Birmingham Public Library continue to provide the community with the highest-quality experience of lifelong learning and cultural enrichment. 

Tickets are available for purchase online through Eventbrite. Please show your support of the Birmingham Education Foundation, the Friends Foundation of the BPL, and the BPL by buying a ticket today.
