New and Newer January 27, 2008

This new year seems to be bringing lots of new stuff–very interesting stuff, too:

Have you seen Thicket magazine yet? It’s a new publication about Alabama–and a darn fine attempt to present an updated, modern, more realistic image of the state, mainly to ourselves. The first issue is quite appealing, with quick-read stories on everything from education and politics to small towns, food, music, and profiles of people who have moved here from other states and countries. Though this first issue could have used more diversity, I think the magazine is off to a good start.

I love the new shops that have opened downtown in the past few years–and one of the newest and coolest is Magic City Motor Scooters, which had its grand opening party this weekend. Even if you’re not in the market for a sleek little scooter, stop by to see the inviting renovated space in the Acme Building–and pick up a hip T-shirt or *pretend* that you’re in the market for a sleek little scooter.
