Sinclair’s: The End of an Era

Almost exactly 25 years ago, I was at the Cloverdale Shoe Shop getting my usual repair work done (real estate is hard on shoes). The owner at the time, Carroll Thompson, mentioned to me that the art gallery at 1044 E. Fairview (the business of west of his) was closing soon and the property would […]

The rumors finally were confirmed when it was announced (by essentially every media outlet in town) that Sinclair’s would be closing. That sturdy cornerstone of the Cloverdale Five Points neighborhood, that trusty staple of the restaurant scene. There were some people that described Sinclair’s as their favorite place for food, but many more described it […]

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 […]

It’s normal in a new year to count your blessings as you prepare for the year ahead. Montgomery’s got so much to offer, but sometimes we can fall into a rut by eating only at the handful of our favorite restaurants. Sure, everyone loves El Rey, but you can’t just eat burritos every night (and […]

If you go to Montgomery’s beautiful Curb Market or eat a meal at Central or A&P Social, you’ll routinely see fresh produce that was grown right here in the downtown of our great city. We were curious about the downtown farm and how it works, so last week MML sat down with Caylor Roling, Montgomery’s […]

After doing our civic duty on election day, we decided to try one of downtown’s new lunch options. Just around the corner from the fantastic Savanna Tropical Cafe are two new spots: Touch of Soul Cafe and D’Road Cafe. On the day we went, Touch of Soul closed early for the election. We’re glad it’s […]

We get a lot of media advisories here at MML, and we delete most of them. We make fun of some of them, because their embrace of PR-speak often approaches the level of incomprehensible word salad. So when we were invited to an exclusive media preview meal at the new Pieology Pizzaria out next to […]

Summer in Montgomery can be hard and unrelenting. The insects come in waves: bees, junebugs, cicadas. The humidity is like wearing a wet scarf, one that has been soaked in boiling water. You walk outside and it feels like someone has parked a cement truck on your chest. You think it’s never going to end. […]
