the garage

ok, people. if you live in the birmingham-area and have never been to the garage, you must go. during the day, they serve the best sandwiches ever {complete with the best pickle spears around}. & at night, the place is actually quite magical.

it's an old antique mall that's been converted to a bar & sandwich joint. all the stalls that used to house different sellers are now filled with piles upon piles of, well, stuff. and they're glassed in so you can see everything while you're in the open courtyard {from old porcelain sinks to super-creepy porcelain dolls}. there's usually a cat {or two} wandering around. and you can't help but relax & enjoy the atmosphere ...

... which was exactly what jeremy & i needed during lunch today. cause, you see, our house closing got pushed. again. & after a mini-meltdown this morning, we both needed to just see each other and chill out. the garage was the perfect choice...

WEIRD! I was just talking to my Mom about our May trip to 'bama, including our eating at The Garage whilst in Birmingham. I can't wait, really. I'll get you dates soon but it'll be during the week and between May 3rd & 6th. This post really hit the (timely) spot!
