    This isn't a hot take; it's a bad take.

    I’ve been 5 times now and never had anything that wasn’t exquisitely seasoned there.

    That's not a bad area, per se, but you don't want to get too far into Fountain Heights at night. Everything west of 65 from downtown is going to be First 48 territory. The Tutwiler has somewhat recently been redone, and isn't a bad hotel at all. It's pretty much a Hampton Inn. Redmont is a higher end Hilton property now. Both are situated pretty well for the Civil Rights trail through downtown. Linn Park, which is behind the Tutwiler, is loaded with homeless people, but they're pretty harmless and mostly go to the nearby shelter at night.

    Furnace Fest appears to have been a bigger draw than I had anticipated

    from what i've seen on twitter, it's considered to be an incredible lineup for that genre (of which i am admittedly not a fan, but good for them!)

    i enjoyed the people watching at mom's last night

    I almost got into a wreck earlier near pepper place bc a metallic green Volkswagen bug decided to come to a complete stop and rip a u turn in the middle of the road. It was some girl with purple hair that I’m assuming was hunting for parking

    About to head down for a show. Had to pay $300+ for a Hampton Inn and there are no dinner reservations available anywhere good. Oh well.

    Anyone have moving recs? Short move (~4 blocks, but down a big ass hill), Flemming stood me up yesterday for an appointment. Have called around for quotes, only one person called me back. Has to happen first full week +2nd weekend of October. We were planning on moving stuff ahead of time in our van, but just interested in general moving services for big items.

    Will always recommend All My Sons. Wasn't the cheapest but they fit me in on less than 24 hours notice after those fuckers at Bellhops told me I didn't have a reservation on the day before I had to be out of my house.

    No. Just drove down for show and back home early this morning. I am glad Zydeco has a competitor now. That place blows.

    I've been twice and loved it. My buddy I have been with before said yesterday was a total shit show. He showed up to eat, they said online only and wouldn't even take a to go order for him. He was told he had to go online and order. He probably won't be back.

    I do feel like every time I order Davenports is a 2 hour wait as well.

    Also, to those that have seen a concert there, is any of it covered? Expecting rain and not sure if they will cancel or not.
