The clock is ticking. Midnight this Saturday (August 17) marks the deadline for artists to submit their work to the Montgomery Art Guild/Regions Bank Art Show. We recently sat down with some of the Guild’s leadership for a wide-ranging conversation, and we’ll write about that soon, but for now we’re here to encourage you to […]

Big Plans at the Airport

Big Plans at the Airport

By on 13 August, 2019 in City Living, Kate and Stephen with 4 Comments

Over the time we’ve lived in Montgomery, we’ve traveled all over the country — and all over the world. Most often, these trips are for work, but sometimes (gratefully) they are not. Almost every single time, we’ve flown into and out of the Montgomery airport. And we’ve regularly said that one perk of living here […]

  The other day we wrote about upcoming opportunities to find out more about the folks who want to be Montgomery’s next mayor. There’s a Saturday forum at the Jubilee Center, and we just got some more information about it from the hosts. Key parts for our readers – Seven candidates will appear before a […]

Our New Mayor?

Our New Mayor?

We moved here after the great recession of 2008, when homemade Obama shirts sold on our local street corners pointed to the ways that hope could merge with electoral politics for epochal effects. But Alabama’s voting public sometimes takes a while to register and reflect changing times. So although there have been rumblings since we […]

I’m still working on the new book  (Montgomery’s Classic Restaurants) with Carole King, and unable to think about much of anything else except the heat this summer. So I decided to share some of what I have learned about food in Montgomery and in the process give you a “taste” of the book to come. It […]

Pinocchio at the Playhouse

Pinocchio at the Playhouse

Last night I attended opening night at Cloverdale Playhouse’s The True Adventures of Pinocchio. I went expecting to see a staged version of the legendary animated Disney film. What I found was much more akin to a Grimm’s fairy tale, complete with lying and cheating and killing and stealing. Not exactly what one would expect […]

Scandinavia and Soul Food

We don’t buy a lot of furniture. The best furniture buying experience we’ve ever had involved no purchases, but did allow us to see the inside of the old Bishop-Parker building downtown. Someday soon that place will be a “boutique hotel.” Hopefully it will retain the interior details that signal a bygone era of consumption […]

Cauliflower “Wings” and Home Frying

Cauliflower “Wings” and Home Frying

By on 1 July, 2019 in Cooking, Food, Kate and Stephen with 0 Comments

Buffalo sauce is delicious. No matter the brand, it’s always good – unless you try to be a hero and eat something above your heat tolerance. Something else that’s generally delicious (if not healthy) is fried food. For the non-vegetarians out there, these often find an optimal mix in chicken wings. Which, judging by the […]

It’s summer. While popular lyrics would have us think “the living is easy,” that is not how I would describe my current reality. Carole King and I are working on our latest book, Montgomery’s Classic Restaurants. It’s a project with History Press, and we’re digging deep for material. I’m pretty much writing on it every second […]
