There is always room for ice cream!!!

We are always keeping an eye out for new places to try. I found out about a place in downtown Springville called Laster Sundries on Main. So one rainy day we decided to ride to Springville to give it a try. It looks like an old fashioned soda fountain. According to their Facebook page the…

SOHO Social

We had heard of SOHO Social and decided to give it a try one day for lunch. Really wish that they had a lunch menu with lunch prices, but they just have one menu so it made for a bit of a pricey lunch. We had been wanting to try the pimento mac and cheese…

College Football Hall of Fame

Before the football season we decided to take a last minute overnight trip to Atlanta to visit the College Football Hall of Fame. We had been talking about it for awhile, and decided that we needed to just go and stop just talking about going. So we decided that we wanted to do an overnight…

Hero’s Part Two

I recently had the pleasure of getting lunch with Julie during the week. We don’t usually go to lunch together during the work week. We had narrowed our choices down to a couple of places we have yet to try or Hero Doughnuts & Buns in Homewood. We had eaten at Hero’s once previously, and…

The Thirsty Donkey

There is a new restaurant in Avondale called The Thirsty Donkey. This restaurant got added to our list of places to try because I came across an article about the opening. The owners, originally from Birmingham, moved to St. Johns US Virgin Islands and opened the first The Thirsty Donkey restaurant there, but in 2017…

Cosmo’s

Our last night at the beach we decided that we’d have dessert with our meal. So we looked at our list and chose Cosmo’s, another new restaurant. Cosmo’s had been added to the list because I saw in a Gulf Shores/Orange Beach Facebook group that they had a really yummy dessert called Chocolate Creation. After…

YoHo Rum & Tacos

One night while on vacation we decided to shop and have dinner at The Wharf. We visited some of the stores that were still open. After the sun went down they had a light show. The music to the show while we were shopping was Baby Shark. I recorded and sent it to my great…

BILL-EES

While we were on vacation and just across the bay from Mobile we decided to meet Tyler and Amy for dinner. Since it was a weeknight and they would have to work the next morning we decided to meet them in the Fairhope area for dinner. So again we turned to Yelp. Jeff found a…

Sunliner Diner

On our recent vacation to Orange Beach we found a newer restaurant in Gulf Shores that we had not visited before. It is about a block and a half to two blocks from the beach. It’s called Sunliner Diner. It’s a 50’s style diner and had a menu that sounded really amazing. We went there…

Flipper’s

While on vacation in Orange Beach we decided on this trip to try new to us restaurants. One of the new one’s on our list was Flipper’s. We had added it to our list on a recommendation from our niece and nephew. They had visited on their most recent vacation and said that the hushpuppies…
