The Debut of Renovators’ Happy Hour

The Debut of Renovators’ Happy Hour

If perchance you happened to be passing by Felder Avenue in Midtown’s Old Cloverdale neighborhood last Thursday, you might reasonably have assumed that there had been a death in a prominent family or something. After all, that’s the typical reason that long lines of parked cars accumulate on a residential Montgomery street. Well, the truth […]

How Do We Take the Bus?

How Do We Take the Bus?

I didn’t have to work today, and wanted very much to finally make good on my multi-year goal of taking the bus somewhere, anywhere really. I decided to go to the mall. I had heard that there was a new comic book store in Eastdale Mall, and I wanted to check it out. At 10:54 […]

Columbiana: The Drink

A few years back, we published a piece about one of the awesome international grocery stores here in Montgomery. And we’ve also written an analysis about what cultural trends can be determined by scanning the aisles of our local Publix. So it’s not entirely out of the blue that we decided to comment on the […]

Day trip: Wilderness Park, Prattville

By on 17 January, 2017 in Fun, Kate and Stephen, Parks with 0 Comments

You’ve got a few spare hours on an unusually under-committed Saturday. It has been nearly a decade since you last went to Pratville’s bamboo “forest,” otherwise formally known as Wilderness Park. You decide to return. The dog from 2008 is now deceased. The new dog stays on the leash, due to her excitability and newly-discovered […]

Cloverdale Playhouse: Dead Man’s Cell Phone

As often as possible, we like to attend the opening night of Cloverdale Playhouse productions, if only so that we can write a review and describe it to readers of Midtown Montgomery Living. For the current production, our lives got busy, and we were unable to attend the show until Thursday evening. That means that […]

Autumn Baseball

We sing hymns to this time of year, the autumn, when you hear the faint honking of a high school marching band’s tuba during a dog walk, when you hear the bass drum getting ready for football season, when the suffocating heat flirtatiously hints at departure, when talk turns to starting quarterback position battles and […]

Back to School

Signs of back-to-school are all around us as we move to the midpoint of the month of August. Large displays of the required school supplies are advertised in all the discount stores. BOGO for pencils, erasers, pens, notebooks, crayons, and hand sanitizer (what’s that about?) are advertised. Racks of the required basic monotonous uniforms that are […]

Papa Roc’s Italian Restaurant

Papa Roc’s Italian Restaurant

It’s easy to roll your eyes when someone talks about “branding” their small business, but our initial reaction to Papa Roc’s can offer a valuable lesson to anyone with some basic training in public relations and design — and can offer a different lesson to folks who might make the mistake of judging a book by […]

Tuskegee Day Trip

By on 18 July, 2016 in Kate and Stephen with 0 Comments

This is the story of how I came to be choking back tears while sitting in the trailer of an 18-wheeler on the landing strip of an airfield. I was technically on property owned by an economically-decimated municipality, but was adjacent to a federally-owned National Historic Site. The 18-wheeler was idling in the scorching July […]
