Empiricism? Is That All You’ve Got?

Empiricism? Is That All You’ve Got?

Tonight we saw the very best production we’ve ever seen at the Cloverdale Playhouse. That’s saying something since we have pretty much been reviewing plays there ever since 2011, when then-Artistic Director Greg Thornton quoted Rosencrantz and Guilderstern Are Dead in the epigraph to a Midtown Montgomery Living blog post about picking plays during that […]

We went to the Alabama National Fair in 2013 and wrote it up for Midtown Montgomery Living. It’s such a colorful and visually interesting experience, we even devoted another whole post to photos, including some gems from the Ferris Wheel and some of the Frisbee dogs. We went again last year, framing our post as […]

We may be well enough into the football season to have a sense of who’s going to be grumbling in December, but it’s still hot in Alabama in September. That seems to be the general trend of things, so information about where to go to cool off while getting exercise is pretty handy stuff. Alabama […]

I was a conference recently in Mississippi, and was the recipient of the standard-issue bag of Professional Conference Swag™. You know the stuff: tote bag, various pens and notepads, perhaps a keychain or water bottle if they’re really spending big (shout-outs to all of the generous donors who make conferences happen). Frequently (we tend to […]

On Wednesday night we went to the campaign office of Tabitha Isner in an unassuming building over on Ann Street. But we weren’t there to campaign for her. Instead, we were there for nonpartisan civic engagement. We were going to volunteer our time and our cellphone minutes to the Alabama Voting Rights Project, a group […]

There’s something special about living in the same city as the State Archives. People come from all over the state, sometimes all over the country, to visit the Archives (and its top-notch museum) and here it is in our town. That might cause us to take it for granted, so if you haven’t been lately, […]

We sure have written about a lot of pizza places for Midtown Montgomery Living over the years. Just last week, our review found the atmosphere at Bibb Street Pizza to be pretty fun, even though the food was kind of uninspiring. And our first ever post here, a long eight years ago, was about our […]

Effective parenting can be enhanced by a certain kind of alchemy. On some nights, you want a very particular combination of things: beer, food, perhaps some dining al fresco with a place for children to run around. Despite our occasionally temperate climate, Montgomery doesn’t have that many of these places. However, Bibb Street Pizza is […]

The stories we hear or read in childhood tend to stay with us for the rest of our lives. They infect our dreams while coloring our expectations for all future narratives. Some of this is because we are so impressionable at a young age. Some of it is because childrens’ stories tend to boil ideas […]

There’s Summer Yet for Art Camps

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 […]
