How to Speak Southern If you’re not from around here, some of the lingo you’ll read and hear at area restaurants may be confusing. Here’s a little dictionary to help decipher Southern food speak

The Tipping Point

n Save space for its Cookie Skillet, a soft, warm, just-baked chocolate chip cookie crowned with vanilla ice cream and fudge sauce. With a selection of craft beer and its outdoor area, the Kids’ Hill, this is a great spot for all ages to enjoy. J

334-260-9110 • tippingpointhampstead.com

Meat & Three:

Usually refers to more casual “home cooking” spots and means the menu offers a plate with your choice of one meat (fried chicken, country fried steak, fried catfish — sensing a pattern here?) and three sides, usually Southern-style vegetables like fried okra, fried green tomatoes, squash casserole, creamed corn, collard greens and more. Often served with cornbread or biscuit.

Dreamland Bar-B-Que

n End your quest for the perfect ‘cue at Dreamland BBQ downtown, famous for its succulent ribs and delicious sauce. Feel free to “pig out” on some pulled pork, and do not miss the signature dish, a glistening, tender and smoky Rack of Ribs. D J

334-273-7427 • dreamlandbbq.com

Grits:

A creamy, savory porridge-like dish made from ground hominy and often embellished with cheese. Shrimp & Grits is a favorite Dixie dish.

Sweet Tea:

The default setting when you order a glass of iced-tea down here. And sweet means S-W-E-E-T. Specify “unsweet” if you don’t want any sugar. Or ask for half-and-half for just a little sweetness.

Twin Peaks

n This place is known for its wings, but it’s got other tastes to offer too, including burgers, sandwiches, salads and desserts. Try the signature dish, Chargrilled Salmon, a grilled salmon filet accented with the restaurant’s signature chipotle butter and served with roasted potatoes and mixed vegetables. J

CiCis Pizza

Montgomery’s Vintage Year is a winner of the James Beard Blended Burger Project. In 2019, Eric Rivera, executive chef of Vintage Year restaurant and bar in Montgomery is the grand prize winner for the James Beard Foundation’s Blended Burger Project, the culinary foundation’s partnership with the Mushroom Council that challenges chefs around the country to create healthy, sustainable burger patties by blending in 25 percent fresh mushrooms. In addition to a $5,000 cash prize, Rivera had the honor of preparing his winning blended burger— crafted with waygu beef, crimini and oyster mushrooms topped with shaved fennel, apple and onion slaw, and sorghum glaze — at the prestigious James Beard House in New York City last October.

n Feel free to overdo it a bit. You can feast on multiple kinds of pizza and pasta at the buffet. Try CiCis signature dish, the Mac and Cheese Pizza. A garlic butter crust is piled with a hefty portion of CiCis creamy and comforting mac and cheese. J

TOP 5 FREE FAMILY FUN SPOTS There’s so much to do in Montgomery and quite a bit of it is yours for the taking. Check out these places that will entertain you and your family without requiring you to open your wallet. Splish Splash

Take in the Alabama River’s natural beauty with a visit to the Riverwalk. But when the temperature heats up, so does the fun level, thanks to the Riverwalk Splash Pad. Parents can chill out while the kids cool off—running, jumping and, of course, splashing among rising and falling jets of water. D

Express Yourself

Located inside the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, ARTWORKS is an interactive, hands-on wonderland where the world of the visual arts becomes child’s play. Visitors are encouraged to touch the art in ARTWORKS and to explore the many computers with a variety of art-related software. A mezzanine features an assortment of art-related books, games and puzzles. Admission to MMFA and ARTWORKS is free, but a donation of any size is always appreciated.

Blast from the Past

Capitol Idea

Alabama is a treasure trove of history—some of it tumultuous, all of it interesting—and you can get an up-close-and-personal experience with the state’s multi-faceted heritage by taking the free, guided tour of the State Capitol Building. Built in 1851, Alabama’s State Capitol Building is one of the only state capitols designated a National Historic Landmark and one of the oldest capitol buildings in the country. (And we think one of the most beautiful too!) The tour guides at the Capitol share a wealth of knowledge and insider information. D

Say Moo

Turn on the imagination with the interactive exhibits and displays at the Alabama Cattlemen’s Association’s MOOseum. Kids and adults alike will walk away with a fresh perspective on Alabama’s important agricultural heritage. D

Hands-on Gallery & Grandma's Attic, a hands-on gallery, located in the Museum of Alabama, gives children a chance to experience Alabama's past in an interactive environment. The gallery offers a unique hands-on area where children dress up in clothes from an earlier time and play with a variety of objects from the non-permanent education collection. It also features discovery boxes that aid children in exploring different topics in Alabama history such as World War II, American Indian pottery, quilt-making and Alabama's first ladies. Games, puzzles, photos, maps, toys, etc. stimulate children to learn by creating and playing. D

While you’re downtown, stop in Tucker Pecan Co. and enjoy hand-dipped ice cream cones for a dollar, sample pecans and shop for unique gifts.

Top Playgrounds

Kids burn off energy while parents take a break! Any of these city parks offer plenty of playground essentials like swings, slides, monkey bars, climbing walls and more.

2. DINNER IN THE DISTRICT A COMMUNITY DINNER LIKE NO OTHER

Just 13 miles north of Montgomery, Prattville is a city with multiple personalities that works together to create a place that’s earned itself the name “the Preferred Community.” The city was modeled after a New England village, yet has all the hospitality and warmth indicative of its deep-South locale. Although ranked as one of the fastest growing areas in Alabama, Prattville maintains a quaint charm, and its close-knit, smalltown atmosphere belies the many metropolitan opportunities and modern amenities offered. It’s a harmonious marriage of seeming opposites that’s made its residents swell with hometown pride and eager to welcome everyone to their special spot in Central Alabama’s River Region.

Celebrate during the fall on the banks of Autauga Creek overlooking the historic Daniel Pratt Gin Factory. The open-air celebration kicks off with a cocktail hour followed by a multi-course meal inspired by Daniel Pratt’s famed community dinners.

Come see why this lovely spot is a great place to visit and to live.

WHO KNEW? Wetumpka’s idyllic charm has captured Hollywood’s eye three times. Its picturesque downtown area served as part of the setting for the movies “The Grass Harp” (1995), “The Rosa Parks Story” (2002) and “Big Fish” (2003).

Wetumpka is home to one of only two marine impact craters in the United States. The still-visible, fivemile-wide “astrobleme” was created when a meteorite collided with earth, blasting through bedrock and soil in Wetumpka 84 million years ago. The tilted rocks in and along the Coosa River are evidence of the event.

MILLBROOK

COMFORT. CONVENIENCE. COMMUNITY.

As more and more people discover the allure of the good life in Millbrook, the community spirit of this close-knit city is flourishing.

Kids’ Kingdom

Holding On To Heritage While Millbrook is one of the fastest growing cities in the state and facing its future with optimism and confidence, it remains proud of its past. With a rich heritage dating back to the 1700s, the Millbrook area, including Robinson Springs, Coosada, Deatsville and Elmore, was known for its sprawling plantations and prominent leaders, including Bolling Hall, William Wyatt Bibb, John Archer Elmore and Benjamin Fitzpatrick. The first pioneer home built in present day Millbrook was known as Ellerslie, constructed in 1818 by Bolling Hall, a well-known statesman and planter of that time. Hall’s home still stands and is included in the National Register of Historic Places.

NaturePlex at the Alabama Nature Center

Between World War I and World War II, the communities of Millbrook, Coosada, and Robinson Springs, later referred to as the Tri-Community, began to evolve and grow, adding schools, churches and rail transportation. Contributing to the population growth during this era were unfortunate outbreaks of diseases in the more populated city of Montgomery. Millbrook became a place to retreat during the long, hot summers. Seasonal homes and cabins in Millbrook, Coosada and Robinson Springs offered families fresh country air and seclusion. Soon, the seasonal population began to stay year round.

On the Grow Today, the area retains the best of its early features and natural resources, while aggressively pursuing economic development opportunities. It has experienced a more than 40 percent increase in its population in the last 20 years, and this influx of new residents has spurred unprecedented residential building, which in turn has attracted new commercial development that keeps gaining momentum. Residents and visitors enjoy a wide variety of retail, restaurant and hospitality options, and Millbrook’s substantial number of undeveloped and highly trafficked commercial sites point to additional expansion and an even brighter future.

Millbrook also has convenient Interstate 65 access, is located only 10 miles north of Montgomery, Alabama’s state capital, and the Montgomery Regional Airport is approximately 20 miles from Millbrook. This ease of access is paving the way for continued prosperity.

Community Counts Millbrook residents enjoy the best of two worlds – small city comforts plus urban conveniences – creating a relaxing way of life underpinned by a genuine sense of community. The city promotes this close-knit feeling by offering plenty of opportunities for its residents to get involved. Numerous civic and service organizations are credited with contributing to the orderly

growth and development of the city. Annual events and festivals are made possible through partnerships between community organizations and the city. And more than 50 places of worship representing many religious denominations are also an important part of community life.

Rivers are located on the eastern side of the city. Scenic Lake Martin and Lake Jordan are just minutes away. The Mill Creek meanders through the center of the Village Green, Millbrook’s town center park, and natural ponds dot the landscape in neighborhoods and on small farms.

To ensure that this spirit of connection is not lost to growth and to maintain the simplicity of a quiet, safe and healthy lifestyle, the city readily invests in parks and recreation facilities and venues. The city’s continuing support of local public schools and youth has made the fully accredited Elmore County Public School System a standout among Alabama’s public school systems. The Elmore County system serves a countywide student population of more than 11,000 at 15 schools with a mission to provide relevant, engaging, positive learning environments where students are empowered to realize their self-worth through continuous academic, social and emotional growth. A well- established community theater contributes to the cultural health of the community and represents the citizens’ appreciation for the performing arts.

The statewide headquarters and conservation educational facilities of the Alabama Wildlife Federation (AWF) are true gems and are located in Millbrook at Lanark. This historic 300-plus-acre estate includes the Alabama Nature Center, the NaturePlex, miles of diverse nature trails and exceptional programs and events for schools and the public including nature photography classes, gardening workshops, kids’ fishing rodeos and more.

Out and About The great outdoors play a prominent role in Millbrook’s quality of life too, with six well-equipped and maintained public parks that provide recreational options for all ages. A variety of outdoor options are available for hunting, fishing and boating enthusiasts.

Millbrook’s many amenities include two outdoor-based gems with topnotch educational and recreational facilities. The Alabama Nature Center, a facility of the Alabama Wildlife Federation (AWF), is a planneduse, outdoor conservation education destination that offers first-rate educational programs and activities for schools and the public utilizing the remarkable Lanark property as a living laboratory. The Grandview Family YMCA, located on beautiful expansive grounds, offers a wide variety of sports, fitness, aquatics and child care programs with walking trails, athletic fields and a lake.

Wildlife and waterways help define Millbrook. The Coosa and Alabama Visit cityofmillbrook.org for more details. FOR INFORMATION 800-240-9452 87

MAXWELL GUNTER MONTGOMERY Montgomery and Maxwell Air Force Base have always been close partners, and the capital city is proud to have a military institution of such stature as part of its community. In 2015, the warm welcome and strong support that Montgomery has consistently provided to all who live and work at Maxwell earned the city a prestigious national award, the Altus Trophy. The recognition is presented annually to the city that has shown the most “outstanding support to an Air Education and Training Command base,” and Montgomery was chosen from many other cities for the distinction. The city has a long history of aviation excellence, starting back in 1910, when the famous “fathers of flight,” the Wright brothers, chose Montgomery as the spot for their first civilian flying school. That same site would later become Maxwell Air Force Base. Through the years, city leaders and everyday citizens have reached out to Maxwell by holding events like Military Appreciation Week and Military Night at Biscuits baseball games. In addition, The Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce includes a Military Support Council that regularly holds events like “Eggs and Issues,” breakfast meetings that allow military representatives and city and state leaders to gather and discuss important issues.
