You think you know what to expect from the Alabama National Fair – a lot of pretty unhealthy food items, some people harassing you to play games and win stuffed animals, a number of recently reassembled shiny rides designed to move quickly for several days at a time and then be transported cross-country. We went […]

The days are getting shorter and, rain aside, the weather is changing for the better. Football season’s well underway, and your culinary thoughts may be turning to cocoa and soup (though, let’s be honest, it’s still pretty warm outside). That said, maintaining your calendar is important. Here are four things to think about as you […]

A couple of weeks ago I had the distinct pleasure of visiting New Orleans for *gasp* the first time. I’m not sure how I managed to go 25 years without ever visiting, but I did. I’m not alone, however, my husband, David, had never been either. My new job gave us both the chance to […]

A classic Kids in the Hall sketch features a man making a cocktail in a blender in the supply closet at work. Once you have entered the world of exotic and complicated drinks, it seems like they become an obsession that changes your life. It was a single drink that turned Jeff Berry into a […]

New Owner, New Start for the Biscuits!

We love to go to Biscuits games early in the season, when there’s still a touch of cool spring in the air, and every single professional baseball team is within striking distance of first place. The world is full of promise. This year, we didn’t make it to our first Biscuits game until June, but […]

One of my first posts for MML was about Rescued Relics, our salvage warehouse at Old Alabama Town. So I thought it was time for an update on what has been a huge success! We initiated this innovative way to produce income when the city budget cuts took their toll on our operations here at Old […]

Firing Range: Montgomery Indoor Shooting Complex

Firing Range: Montgomery Indoor Shooting Complex

Guns occupy a complicated space in our culture. They’re physical tangible things, similar in some ways to household appliances or tools. But they spark high octane debates that touch on everything from the U.S. Constitution to crime statistics. Even the folks that think handguns ought to be illegal (except for police and military uses) would […]

Green Papaya

Green Papaya

It seems like people either love or hate Green Papaya (409 Coliseum Blvd), and I can kind of see why. My first experience with Green Papaya was during my first year in Montgomery. I was living near the fairgrounds, and almost nightly I’d lie in bed in my lonely new town shaking the Urban Spoon […]

We were like children when the Alabama National Fair came to town a few weeks back (Warning: Clicking that link opens the official website of the fair, but also causes a crazy song to play. You’ve been warned.) Evidently, we were not the only ones. Attendance for the fair was up over 20 percent this […]
