On a recent family holiday we visited the Salt Lake City Public Library. “Why in the world would you go to a library when there are so many other wonderful things to do in that area?!” you might wonder. And if you followed the hyperlink in the first sentence, you would not wonder at all. […]

On my journey to a healthier me, I have recently started an elimination diet where I am cutting out known inflammatory foods such as dairy, meat, sugar, grains (rice, wheat, etc), starchy vegetables (beans and potatoes) and alcohol. It has been a challenging and eye-opening experience to keep my meals both satisfying and tasty. As […]

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 […]

For my birthday this week, my mom took me out to dinner and the result was one of the best meals I have had since moving to Montgomery. I’m not sure why we hadn’t been to The Chophouse Vintage Year. Maybe it’s because it’s weird for the restaurant to have two names. A steakhouse called […]

Editor’s note: You’ve probably seen that series in the New York Times where they drop a reporter into a city and give them 36 hours (or so) to find fun things to do. It raises the question of what would be the highlights of a surgical strike to a city. That series came to mind […]

I Believe in Hilda Dent

I Believe in Hilda Dent

A few months ago, we wrote about our adventure going before the Architectural Review Board. We were seeking permission to renovate our sunroom. The room almost certainly was once open to the elements — or perhaps screened in — and once featured a rear-facing door (long since bricked in to make a nice bookcase). At some […]
