Homegrown Pastime at the Cloverdale Playhouse

Homegrown Pastime at the Cloverdale Playhouse

By on 16 February, 2015 in Fun, Jesseca Cornelson with 1 Comment

Last Thursday, I had the pleasure of watching the debut performance of Pastime, written and directed by Greg Thornton, at the Cloverdale Playhouse. The Playhouse selected the script (submitted under a pseudonym) for development in the 2014 Page-to-Stage series. The simple plot captures the complex dynamics of the contemporary American family. Ten years after the […]

Up the Alabama River … With a Paddle

I’ve previously written about Alabama’s many rivers and my love of kayaking on the Coosa here before, and last year Kate and Stephen interviewed Alabama River Alliance’s executive director Cindy Lowry about Rivers of Alabama Day 2013. Last week, I was lucky enough to participate in ARA’s Defend Rivers Paddle, launching the new Defend Rivers […]

Clybourne Park – A Review

By on 28 June, 2014 in Art, Fun, Jesseca Cornelson with 0 Comments

Montgomery truly has a treasure in the Cloverdale Playhouse. It’s a gorgeously renovated theater with a visionary artistic director in Greg Thornton, generous volunteers, and impressive local talent. For those not familiar with Bruce Norris’s Clybourne Park, the play’s first act picks up shortly after the end of Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun […]

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 […]

Ride, Harriott II, Ride

Okay, so the Harriott II isn’t technically in Midtown, but I’ve wanted to take a cruise on it since I first saw her. Last week, I finally got to live out my dream with a dinner cruise. My friend and I arrived shortly before the passengers were allowed to board. It had rained earlier, so […]

The Railyard Brewing Company

By on 16 January, 2013 in Bars, Food, Jesseca Cornelson, Restaurant Reviews with 1 Comment

I’d anticipated the opening of the Railyard Brewing Company ever since I first tasted Chef Leo Maurelli’s divine little pimento cheese sliders and enjoyed Brewmaster Kade Miller’s brown ale and porter at the Front Porch Revival. I went to the Brewing Company (12 W. Jefferson St.) the first week or so they were open, back […]

Derk’s Filet and Vine

By on 20 June, 2012 in Food, Jesseca Cornelson, Restaurant Reviews with 2 Comments

The first time I visited Derk’s Filet & Vine, I wasn’t even a Montgomerian yet. I had come to the cradle of the Confederacy and the birthplace of the Civil Rights Movement (as I was informed by the city crest emblazoned upon the soap dispensers in The Montgomery Area Visitor Center) to do research for […]

Dear Montgomery Midtown Netizens, This post originally began as an email to Montgomery Midtown Living requesting advice about where to inline skate in Montgomery without dying. On Kate’s advice, it has now grown into a blog post so that we might crowdsource Midtown Montgomerians’ knowledge on the subject. As I’m soliciting your input, I’m giving […]
