Nuzzi Gelato

img_8866

If you’re a blog fan, you know well how much we love dessert, especially ice cream and gelato. And interestingly, aside from Scoops (which we recently wrote about, leading to a 5 pound weight gain during our efforts to try every flavor), and an occasional special gelato at one of our city’s more upscale restaurants (mmmmmm Bettola), this town doesn’t have a lot of gelato. So a few weeks ago, when we saw a cart during one of our routine trips to Pepper Place Farmer’s Market advertising artisan gelato, we had to try it. Here’s the cart, which parks in...

Domestique Coffee

Earlier this evening, we attended the Eat Drink Read and Write festival at the Birmingham Public Library, where we were showcased as “human books.”  Earlier today, we realized we would only have a brief hour...

Slice Pizza

One of the great things about this town is how fast it’s growing. Even though we’ve only been here for a little more than 2 years, we often find ourselves saying, I remember when that place first opened! Slice is one of those places that opened about 2 years ago but has become a favorite. They have a stone oven where they cook their pizzas, which are thin crust and delicious. Recently, we were with a friend and trying to decide where we should eat that has a nice patio. Slice seemed like a good choice. It was a great...
