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 […]

While the day has a lesser meaning in Mexico, in America it has evolved to celebrate American-Mexican unity. Here in Montgomery, Cinco de Mayo is a wonderful time for us to try new food […]

Date Night with Shakespeare

My buddy, Joe, was borderline angry when I told him I hadn’t been to a show at Shakespeare Festival in the six years I’ve lived here. Utter disbelief veiled his face at the inability to fathom the existence of someone who somehow let this experience slip past them for so long. The Shakespeare Festival is a glorious, shining gem in […]
