We don’t have children, so sometimes we forget to write about the many activities that Montgomery has available for young ones, particularly in the summer. (Note: If you are interested in covering the array of child-friendly events around Midtown, check out last week’s post about how to write for our site). That’s why we wanted […]

   “The realm of fairy-story is wide and deep and high and filled with many things: all manner of beasts and birds are found there; shoreless seas and stars uncounted; beauty that is an enchantment, and an ever-present peril; both joy and sorrow as sharp as swords.” ― J.R.R. Tolkien I have long been a lover […]

Fixer-Upper TV Shows and the Unrealistic Expectations They’ve Created

Chances are you’ve seen, and may be a fan of, Property Brothers, Fixer Upper, Flip or Flop and a host of other fix-up shows classified as “reality TV.” And like the Bachelor, Pawn Stars, Hell’s Kitchen and so many other iterations of reality television, very little “reality” is included in these highly scripted and edited […]

Yokohama and DoReMi Karaoke

This month I helped plan a surprise party. We had a dozen guests and wondered what restaurant would best accommodate that many on a Saturday night. Someone suggested Yokohama which they said had private rooms you could reserve. This seemed like a good idea; we love Japanese and most of us had never been there. […]

It has been a few years since we wrote about our favorite local “weird noise maker,” Jeff McLeod. Back in 2015, we talked about the diverse set of musical projects from McLeod that drove us to go see a performance at The Sanctuary (432 S. Goldthwaite). Before that, we were writing up his confrontational and […]

Discover the Magic

Discover the Magic

I am a fan of Montgomery history. One of things I especially appreciate is knowing when pieces of the past remain a part of the present. One example of such a situation is the old bell from Freeny’s Tavern. Clemet Freeny, a Georgia native, first visited the area that would become Montgomery in 1809. Documentation […]

If you’re like a lot of folks in Midtown Montgomery, you spent last weekend—or plan to spend this weekend—visiting all the lovely properties open during the Greater Montgomery Homebuilders 2018 Showcase of Homes. And to do so may see you looking at your current home through slightly different eyes, eyes that focus on improvements you […]

“Do You Have a Plan?” “I Don’t Even Have a ‘Pla’…”

“Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.” -Pablo Picasso For many people, summer is the time of relaxation and vacation. The hard work and grueling schedule of the school year […]
