Three local DJs: Oz Entertainment, BG, and Chasing, started this event in November last year as a way to promote underground house and techno music, electronic […]

“We do on stage things that are supposed to happen off; which is a kind of integrity, if you look on every exit as being an entrance somewhere else.” – Tom Stoppard There are so many wonderful plays in the landscape of theater, so many important stories and voices to be heard. Part of the […]

The Perfect Gift

The Perfect Gift

By on 13 December, 2017 in Holidays, Sandra Nickel with 0 Comments

As I was reviewing my emails today, I ran across this quote by Henry David Thoreau: “That man is richest whose pleasures are cheapest.” And it struck me how very true that is, particularly at this time of the year when we are all tempted (and, everywhere we turn, encouraged) to spend, spend, spend. Frankly, […]

This past weekend we braved the snow to check out both the holiday pop-up at Kress and the Product of Montgomery store at 1228 Madison. If you’re still looking for interesting gifts for the folks on your list, we can’t recommend the Madison store highly enough (and Kress, though it was amazing, is now closed). […]

Typically, I blog about quaint small towns with delicious pizza or my first trip to a classic tourist destination. But today’s post is a little different. Don’t worry though, there’s still food involved. My husband, David, and I don’t travel much during the holidays, most of our family members live within a half-hour drive. Our […]

Montgomery’s got a lot of wonderful amenities, but one thing it doesn’t have that you find in many big cities is a piano bar. You know, where you can listen to accomplished pianists play live music and maybe even sing along if the spirit moves you? Local resident Christopher Raborn is on a one-man crusade […]

Little Women at the Cloverdale Playhouse

Little Women at the Cloverdale Playhouse

By on 1 December, 2017 in Amanda Burbank, Art, Fun with 0 Comments

The Cloverdale Playhouse’s production of Little Women is sweetly nostalgic. Its minimalist stage design is like a line drawing; it is like the edges of memories, giving bits of form to contrast the blank spaces which are just as rich. In the absence of specific details in the set, which consist simply of a trunk, […]

Thanksgiving kicks off an annual mad riot of festivities. Folks deck the halls for weeks. They plan and prep and freeze-for-later. They festoon with seasonal lights and inflate balloon critters in the yard. They welcome the holidays and gladden hearts. But Grinch that I am, I refuse to compete in the Holiday Olympics. And (of […]

“Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.” ― Louisa May Alcott Did you know that Louisa May Alcott did not want to write Little Women? She had already created […]
