That Small Town Feeling

Mayor Strange recently said Montgomery was on track to become Alabama’s largest city. Evidently, we’re 4,000 people away from passing Birmingham, which is shrinking. Demographics aside, Montgomery does feel bigger — especially this time of year, with the legislature in session and the corresponding increase in people having business lunches, nice dinners out and after-work […]

We’ve been doing Midtown Montgomery for a couple of years now, and we regularly talk about how much we enjoy the time of year both before and after Halloween.

When you ask someone what Leroy is, they may give you a cryptic response. Leroy may be the “mostest horse that ever was,” but although their online logo is of a horse (and a horseshoe and a crown), there’s no physical sign or anything on the actual building to designate Montgomery’s now-open super-cool El Rey […]

Viva Alabama autumn’s cooler temperatures. Certainly we can use the Mexican  Independence Day celebration as a good excuse for a night out, especially when El Rey is serving its own version of carnitas that can be heartily consumed outside on the deck so we can enjoy the cool air, Mexican Independence Day, and carnitas. So […]

Looking for something to do, but tired of researching to indulge your morbid curiosity about the two tired old folks duking it out in the Alabama Governor’s race? Convinced in some sort of deeply buried sliver of your soul that there might be more to life than consumption of a weekly slate of college football […]

El Rey Burrito Lounge

El Rey Burrito Lounge

We love El Rey (1031 E. Fairview Ave). We love the giant just-salty-enough bowls of guacamole, the tremendous array of vegetarian options, and the thoughtful attention to buying local and sustainable produce, meats, and seafood.
