Real Estate: a Fair Weather Business

Real Estate: a Fair Weather Business

By on 20 February, 2013 in Real Estate, Sandra Nickel with 2 Comments

If you live anywhere near Midtown Montgomery, you know that the first five days of last week (through Wednesday) were abysmal! Rain, thunder, angry clouds and low light. Just downright gloomy. Fairview Avenue, our location, was deserted save the occasional brave soul seeking the comfort of a delicious pizza from Tomatino’s or a hot authentic […]

The New Bathroom

The New Bathroom

Regular MML readers may remember that last year around this time we finally got around to fixing a classic Cloverdale problem: doors that wouldn’t close properly. Our house is coming up on its mid-80s, and some of its moving parts need a tune up every once and a while. As we wrote last August, we […]

As the fall gets underway (Falling leaves! Football! Biscuits in the playoffs!), Midtown Montgomery Living happens to be looking for some new writers to enliven our existing mix. If you’ve got an interest in writing, promoting local events, or just telling folks about what a weird and wonderful place Montgomery is, we’d love to hear […]

Sushi: The Basics

By on 25 June, 2012 in Food, Kate and Stephen, Restaurant Reviews with 0 Comments

A friend recently said that he didn’t see the appeal of sushi. Upon further questioning, he revealed that it might be possible that he simply had not yet consumed sushi properly. He was open to persuasion. As such, we went to Sushi Cafe on Zelda Road and took some notes for the following sushi overview, […]

Derk’s Filet and Vine

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 […]

SugrueBAR…coming soon to Midtown?

So you know how the M. Bagwell shop on Fairview’s been brown-papered up for a little while? If you were like us, you just thought perhaps they were going through one of their periodic re-orientations for new seasonal merch. Nope. It turns out that there’s a plan to put a 99-seat bar in that site. […]

If our parents and grandparents are to be believed, the department shore shopping experience isn’t what it used to be. Where once a customer might find a cool drink of water, a comfortable chair, extensive personal service, well-appointed dressing rooms and quality tailoring services, in many stores today, only the trappings remain. Even if you […]

Spring Events Calendar

Spring Events Calendar

By on 5 March, 2012 in City Living, Fun, Kate and Stephen with 0 Comments

It’s March 5, the anniversary of the Boston Massacre and the birthday of both Rosa Luxemburg and Andy Gibb. This got us thinking – what important events about town are we missing by not putting them in our calendar? Montgomery may not be ready for spring, but no matter – it’s already here, technicolor azaleas […]

The Joy of No Place to Park!

The Joy of No Place to Park!

By on 15 February, 2012 in Sandra Nickel with 2 Comments

I spend most of my waking hours at my office, 1044 E. Fairview in Cloverdale’s Five Points. Weekdays, I arrive before 8:30 and stay until at least 6:30, often 7:30 or so. And because we have Halle, our office cat who insists on eating on Saturday and Sunday, weekends find me here every morning and […]
