Hey Mobile, Alabama! Beginning today, May 24th, Alabama Power will begin the next phase of duct bank improvements downtown. For 3-4 weeks, Church Street between Conception and Royal streets will be closed. Government Plaza parking may be accessed via Church Street from the west.
Did you hear about the new Wendy’s restaurant on Springhill Avenue? The Dauphin Street Stompers were there along with a Wendy impersonator, Azalea Trail Maids and an amazing hamburger cake. I can’t lie, a 4 for $4 for Wendy’s is one of my go-to meals (always the Junior Bacon Cheeseburger — and trade that drink for a frosty).
