Join the the Best Food Tour!
Brewery * Dinner * Brunch * Corporate * Transportation * Private Events
Since the inception of my TV show “Dining Out With Comedienne Joy” viewers say Joy I want to eat like you! Since fans have said “I want to ride on the Party Bus with you!” Now I want them to have that opportunity to do both! We will go and sample some of the local amazing places from my show and beyond.
So whether it’s an exotic entrée like a camel burger with a maple bacon milkshake, fried Brussels sprouts, gumbo or my favorite food: #FriedChicken, I’ll be taking you to some delicious local spots where you will say I didn’t they had that, but it sure was good!
Of course Birmingham has the most unpredictable weather which is why we’ll have our tour on the Party Bus aka "Black Beauty", plus I want everyone to experience the ride! The tours are 4 hours long. There’s an evening and brunch tours. Private tours are also available. So get your ticket and ride with me as we taste Birmingham and beyond!
Make your birthday, girls' night, date night, family reunion or ministry group extra special by booking your own personal food tour!
