Where to Celebrate Halloween in Montgomery 2019

Crunch Bars are the best candy to show up in your trick-or-treating bag and anyone who believes otherwise is a Communist. The poor souls who come to my house each year don’t get coat their cavities with Crunches because I’m quite thorough at picking through the bag I buy at the grocery store and pulling them all out. That being […]

Two Ladies, Some Wine, and Some Jubilee

This evening’s adventure into Cottage Hill was the medicine I needed for a twenty-four hour emotional roller coaster in my personal life.

Goat Haus (Breakfast Saga Part I)

Goat Haus Biergarten was at the top of my must-explore list since it opened in 2017. Until yesterday, that is. The breakfast marauders and I made it to their Saturday morning brunch. While the awkward space doesn’t lend itself to a comfy, inviting atmosphere, it’s easy to see get the idea. Counter service at the back of the restored home […]

There’s a secret group of breakfast explorers in Montgomery.

Coming soon to a former Confederate capitol near you: BREAKFAST. How often have you heard that Montgomery is seriously lacking in boozy, eggy options on a Saturday morning?
