“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.” – Henry James
The (unofficial) start of summer is here, especially in Alabama where we have already seen days that top 90 degrees. To help you get a head start on your summer plans, this week we share dinners and workshops happening at The Factory (and beyond), a few of our favorite summer cocktails—perfect for afternoon barbeques or late nights on the patio with friends—and the histories behind summer-time holidays.
In Alabama: Chilton County peaches
