Last night we went to Cloverdale Playhouse to see the opening night of “A Doll’s House” by Henrik Ibsen, the first play in the 2018 “Season of Game-Changers.” But before that, we watched a couple of episodes of an existentialist Netflix cartoon called “BoJack Horseman,” about a washed-up sitcom celebrity who in the first episode […]

We needed to go to the mall. There are some things you can shop online for, and we do more than our share. In an era where you can get everything from Star Wars-branded Cheezits to a crowbar online, why even leave your house? Turns out, even if you are profoundly lazy, there’s some stuff […]

Airport Changes

One of the benefits of living in Montgomery is our adorable little airport. It’s just a few gates, and nobody would accuse it of being bustling, but it’s ours and it’s surprisingly efficient. We wrote about it somewhat cheekily when we were new to Montgomery, almost a decade ago. We’ve learned to love it in […]

48 Hours in Memphis

Two weeks ago we had the opportunity to visit Memphis. Though it’s just a few hours away by car, we flew. Next time we’ll drive – it’s even closer than New Orleans, which is nice. The city is very fun, extremely underrated actually, with lots to offer the casual visitor. Here’s what we did during […]

It was cold outside, and we wanted brunch. We headed over to Zelda Road to go to First Watch, a place that’s quickly risen to the top of our local list. We’d been there for a “take Mom to lunch” type of thing, and also had an early morning coffee there. The place bills itself […]

Rescued Relics

Rescued Relics

In what will surely be a series of upcoming posts on Midtown Montgomery, we’ve decided to renovate the shed that lives in the back yard of the Midtown house that we purchased about a decade ago. In the ten years that we’ve owned it, we’ve managed to store a few things in the shed, mostly […]

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 […]

For several years now, the local holiday pop-up shop has become a fixture of our gift-acquiring (and subsequent giving) efforts. The pop-up shop an amazing annual project that brings together the work of local artists using all kinds of media for a limited time only. We only regret that it’s just open over the holidays, […]

Not a day goes by when we don’t give thanks for living in our wonderful neighborhood. The wide streets are safe for jogging and dog walking, there are beautiful mature trees to provide shade (and drop plenty of leaves this time of year), and our neighbors are interesting and creative people. This time of year, […]

With a beloved relative in town, we were looking for a lunch place that would impress. But we also needed it to be pretty quick. So we went over to the new Island Delight location on Dexter last week, and we had a great experience. If you’ve only been to the location out by Maxwell, […]
