"We thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the West Alabama Food and Wine Festival. It provided us with an excellent opportunity to gain exposure within the community", said 2015 newcomer Craig Williams, Owner of Avenue Pub located in Temerson Square. "We felt honored to share the floor with some great local restaurants." Craig will be featuring his new restaurant concept at this year's festival!
