One of my favorite events in Huntsville celebrates its 15th Anniversary this Saturday night, June 15th. Dining With Friends is the signature fundraiser for the AIDS Action Coalition (AAC). The AAC is an HIV & AIDS clinic located in Huntsville that serves as a primary care facility for more than 550 individuals, providing medical care, social […]

It’s the MOST wonderful time of the year… And no, I don’t mean the Christmas season—I’m talking about college football, y’all!!! It brings people together like no other sport. Sure, folks might get together to watch the World Series or the Super Bowl, but you can bet that every Saturday from September through November there […]

Come Wednesday, there will be a new kid in town—downtown Huntsville that is! Below the Radar Brewhouse opens their doors at 5:00pm on August 29th and promises to be an instant hit. I was fortunate enough to attend the soft opening Saturday night and was thoroughly impressed. BtR is Huntsville’s first restaurant AND brewery, offering 32 […]

I recently caught up with my dear friend Cristina Lynn, who I first saw perform at probably my favorite restaurant of all time, 801 Franklin. Cristina would often play on Friday nights and my friends and I fell in love with not only her beautiful voice, but her sweet spirit. You can fall in love […]

The Sports Page has been a Huntsville institution for longer than I can remember. But a few years ago, good friend and local musician Mike Roberts and super cool dude Brian O’Beirne bought what is affectionately known as “The Page” by the regulars, and gave this old watering hole new life. A Delicious Change One […]

One Step Closer: Gus Hergert


I recently caught up with one of my favorite local musicians and all-around good guy, Gus Hergert. I first heard Gus play at Bandito Southside and the Sports Page a couple of years ago and knew he had a knack, but when I heard his new cd, “One Step Closer” I was blown away by […]

Nick's Ristorante


Nick’s Ristorante is fast becoming one of my favorite restaurants in the Valley, and judging from the large crowd on a recent Saturday night visit, word is spreading. As is the case with many fine dining restaurants in Huntsville, its location is deceiving of the elegant surroundings and exceptional food and service you will experience […]

Mezza Luna


I can easily say that Mezza Luna is one of my all-time favorite restaurants—in Huntsville, or anywhere. With its open kitchen, wood fired oven and sleek bar, the atmosphere is fantastic and the food never disappoints. The variety allows you to make it a fine dining experience, or if you make a selection from their […]
