Sorry, I just got excited and didn't use the best adjective for it. It's really good.

I didn't see it listed on the OP, but might also be worth listing Alabama Splash Adventure under the attractions: http://www.alabamasplash.com/

I'm planning on updating the list this weekend for the C-USA Tournament.

Until then, here's a couple good links for dining around the BJCC/Legacy Arena & general visitor info:

From the CUSATalk board:

(02-26-2015 08:25 AM)Fireball Topper Wrote:  The wife and I will be making the trip down for the tournament, and we have been doing some research for things to do in the city. For us out-of-towners, could anyone give a big rundown on things to do in Birmingham (Restaurants, sights, etc). Looking forward to a weekend of good basketball!

A good guide of Birmingham from the visitors & convention bureau:
http://birminghamal.org/INguide/

My wife loves basketball & will gladly attend the tournament with me. But if your wife is anything like mine, she'll want to balance out the trip with shopping.
I'd recommend exploring downtown Homewood if you want more of a local flavor (several unique shops, galleries, & restaurants). The Summit is the most popular shopping area, with a lot of national retailers like Saks 5th Ave, Williams-Sonoma, Orvis, Restoration Hardware & a variety of restaurants.

Downtown Homewood:

The Summit:

If you really want to go upscale, visit the different shopping villages of Mountain Brook. You'll need your GPS for this one, even though you're only a couple miles from downtown. The Birmingham Zoo, B'ham Botanical Gardens, the Country Club of B'ham, and hundreds of beautiful old homes connect Crestine, English, and Mountain Brook Villages.
