Condemnation Confabulation

The City of Montgomery made national headlines recently — and not in a good way. The kerfuffle involves city actions that some pundits are framing as “eminent domain through the back door.” The phrase “eminent domain” sets off alarm bells in large numbers of people, particularly after the United States Supreme Court’s controversial 2005 decision […]

Can anyone tell me how much unwanted noise we have to hear in a day? I have become so accustomed to traffic noise, appliances, television and so forth, that I just recently learned how rare it is to hear nothing. On Sunday,  silence awakened me. As I awoke, all I could hear was the occasional […]

Twelve Things About Sinclair’s

While it’s true in some senses that it’s easier to write what you know well, it’s also true that familiarity with a place makes it tough to offer a review that reads as credible to an outsider looking for a fairly objective snapshot of a place. As such, it’s hard to write about Sinclair’s, the […]

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 […]

Lowder Property Rezoning

Lowder Property Rezoning

Regular MML readers know that we’re closely following the debates over re-zoning in Cloverdale Five Points (the part of town with Sinclair’s and The Capri). For those not as geeked out about zoning as we are, the story so far is basically that the City wants to switch over to SmartCode in this part of […]

Sometimes on the way back from New Orleans, we stop at a little gas station just across the bridge to fill up for the trip to Montgomery and stock up on Hubig’s Pies. For years we have considered these delightful snacks to be the apex of the fried pie arts. And then we tried the […]

Excitement is building all across the nation as team lineups solidify, old rivalries are rekindled, and places that haven’t seen a championship team in decades begin to dream. Others dare […]

August Saturday in Midtown

By on 30 August, 2010 in Fun, Kate and Stephen with 2 Comments

We just had a great Saturday. It was one of those days that make you feel really lucky to live in Montgomery. Friday was a late night. Good friends came over. The August heat had finally decided to offer a tease of September. The punishing heat had, if only for a cloudy night, relented. We […]

We love Indian food. We love the differences in cuisine from region to region — even as we love the more Americanized versions of standard Indian dishes that you see on buffets from here to Seattle. But we didn’t always love it. We, like many other people not from South Asia, were once flummoxed by […]
