    Do they do maintenance or just new install?

    Just new installs we're thinking about doing maintenance again, but only if I find someone to completely run it, so I don't have to deal with it.

    Not sure that it would, but I don’t really have any knowledge in your context. For staff, we’ve used ITAC in the past and been happy with them.

    Hey y'all, visiting your lovely city this weekend. Any must eat recs? Looking for takeout/patio options, not picky eaters.
    Also, any recommended coffee shops?

    Thanks!

    Going to Mobile soon...recs for:

    -lunch/dinner (I'll be with family)
    -bar that's fairly chill (I have a work contact I'd like to take out for a drink while I'm there and kill two birds with one stone)

    I'm staying downtown, not vaccinated yet so I'd prefer an outdoor option for both, but am fine with a place that's taking precautions. TIA.

    Callaghans can be good for food and drinks in a dive bar atmosphere but you’ll have to go inside to get drinks. Kids are fine for lunch, too.

    I’m from there and have no idea where to tell you to go eat that’s surely COVID safe. I wouldn’t have high expectations about anywhere being as safe as Birmingham. Throughout the pandemic, Mobile has had a completely different approach than Birmingham. Covid doesn’t exist down there.

    There was one place I got brunch the Sunday after a wedding that was near Dauphin/all the bars but I can't find it anymore or think of the name. The outside looks a lot like El Papi but I'm 99% sure it had a cast iron fence around the outdoor seating. Might have gone out of business but I was extremely hungover and that food cured it.

    Did Squid Ink for dinner. Great gastropub type stuff and outdoor. Choices were kind of limited because it was a Sunday night, we had kids, and it was already like 7:30 by the time we got to dinner.

    Does anybody recommend a car-engine shop? My mazda is sputtering and barely starting. googled symptoms and it seems like i could have some bad fuel in it.

    Prefer someone close to me since i don't want to have the car towed. So if you know someone in Homewood or Vestavia that would be great.

    I would check with Rob'e Mans. They specialize in Asian vehicles, but Mazdas can be weird because of the rotary engines.
