The Noble South Takes on Brunch

Here’s something that got us REAL excited during a stroll down Dauphin Street last week.

Noble South Brunch 5

The Noble South is starting a brunch service??!! WHAAAAT.

Y’all already know how we feel about brunch. But, if you don’t, you’ve got some reading to do before you keep going. Read THIS and then come back.

Mobilians live for brunch. It’s better than any meal of the whole day. It’s serious and SO good.

First of all, anything that involves Champagne is always a good thing. {But, be safe, folks.}

We have friends in high places {more on that below} that supplied us with these photos that we can’t stop drooling over.  Take a look!

The Noble South is located at 203 Dauphin Street and is now open for Sunday brunch!

5 Places to Grab a Cold Beer Downtown

It’s August. It’s hot, humid and we are always looking for ways to cool down. We can think of only a couple of ways that we’d rather cool down than enjoying an ice-cold beer.

Check out these places to pop into for a nice, cold brew.

Head to Joachim Street into Alchemy Tavern and enjoy 42 taps of craft beer to go along with over 100 different whiskeys, including a true top shelf that is unrivaled in the area.

 

 

If a cold one at a neighborhood pub is your thing —Callaghan’s Irish Social Club is the place to go.Callaghan's Music

 

 

 

If you love a variety of beer {over 36 beers on tap} and are a sports-enthusiast, then DraftPicks Taproom is the spot for you.Draftpicks

 

 

With over 102 beers on tap and over 100 bottled beer selections, LoDa Bier Garten is an excellent option! Not to mention — you’ll be able to experience Mobile’s only authentic German pub.

If a trendy, laid back lounge style is your type. Then take a seat, grab a cold one and listen to a live pianist at the Royal Street Tavern.Royal Street Tavern

 

This is just a couple of options to wet your whistle — but there are plenty more beers to drink in Mobile. Click HERE for more!

Ten Sixty Five Parties On!

Last year a celebration happened. A celebration that was planned and executed almost overnight. A celebration to heal our broken hearts after our beloved BayFest ended its 20-year run. The celebration was a street party with live music and good company that left us hoping for many more to come.

That celebration was called Ten Sixty Five. And, Ten Sixty Five is back.

{Why Ten Sixty Five you ask? Well, that’s because Mobile is situated where interstates 10 and 65 intersect. Clever name, right?}

Ten Sixty Five is a free music festival and laid back block party in the streets of Downtown Mobile.  That’s right — we said FREE.

The weekend-long party celebrates music, local artists and makers and of course, locally owned establishments in Downtown Mobile on September 30th, October 1st and 2nd, 2016.

The festival showcases local, regional, and national bands on two main stages. Did we mention it’s FREE?

Here is the lineup for this year’s festival:
