Day Trip: Mobile

By on 1 May, 2017 in Kate and Stephen with 0 Comments

We had concert tickets, given as a Christmas gift, to see Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals at Soul Kitchen in Mobile this past Saturday. It was the kind of gift that promises a future adventure together while also fitting into a stocking. Then, suddenly, it was time. So we planned our weekend trip. Which, […]

Farewell to Sinclair’s

The rumors finally were confirmed when it was announced (by essentially every media outlet in town) that Sinclair’s would be closing. That sturdy cornerstone of the Cloverdale Five Points neighborhood, that trusty staple of the restaurant scene. There were some people that described Sinclair’s as their favorite place for food, but many more described it […]

Science on the Screen: Imitation Game at The Capri

For $20, it’s hard to find a better bargain for your entertainment dollars than the Science on the Screen at The Capri. That price got us two movie tickets, a bottle of water, and our brains stuffed full of information about World War II and cryptography. It was a lot of fun. First of all, […]

How Do We Take the Bus?

How Do We Take the Bus?

I didn’t have to work today, and wanted very much to finally make good on my multi-year goal of taking the bus somewhere, anywhere really. I decided to go to the mall. I had heard that there was a new comic book store in Eastdale Mall, and I wanted to check it out. At 10:54 […]

Cloverdale Playhouse: The 39 Steps

One of many benefits of community theater is how close you are to the stage. The intimacy of productions at the Cloverdale Playhouse is something really special. You can, at times, feel like you are part of the production. And while it’s true that from time to time we’ve seen the “fourth wall” broken at […]

What We Wished We’d Known

What We Wished We’d Known

You’re buying a house for the first time. Everything seems like a dream: the crown molding, the old floors, the large yard. You can’t believe that someone will help you by lending money to make this your home. If you choose wisely, your home will make you happy every day. You can drink coffee in […]

So Dong Gong Tofu & BBQ

It’s normal in a new year to count your blessings as you prepare for the year ahead. Montgomery’s got so much to offer, but sometimes we can fall into a rut by eating only at the handful of our favorite restaurants. Sure, everyone loves El Rey, but you can’t just eat burritos every night (and […]

Just when you think you’ve gotten to know your neighborhood, it sure can surprise you. It turns out that our beloved Cloverdale-Idlewild is brimming with artists. We found out when we saw an advertisement recently for something called the Cloverdale-Idlewild Art Trail, linking together five studios within walking distance of our house. We were intrigued, […]

Uber in Montgomery

Uber in Montgomery

We’re a one car household, and have been for the nine years we’ve lived in Montgomery. We know this makes us a little unusual. It does take some scheduling and planning, but it’s hard to rationalize buying a second car when the commute to work is only 7 minutes. Still, there have been many times […]

Lunch at D’Road

After doing our civic duty on election day, we decided to try one of downtown’s new lunch options. Just around the corner from the fantastic Savanna Tropical Cafe are two new spots: Touch of Soul Cafe and D’Road Cafe. On the day we went, Touch of Soul closed early for the election. We’re glad it’s […]
