Everything Old is New Again March 6, 2012
I love old buildings, the detail and workmanship is incredible. When The Hotel Highland was built-in the 1930′s it was a one of a kind and with all modern hotels in the area today it kind of still is. The hotel is small, only 63 rooms but even with all the renovations thru the years the character remains. We found these pictures from the Pickwick Hotel and we have updated them and will be putting them in some of the rooms. I think they are fabulous!! What do you think?
Congratulations Chris Hastings!! February 27, 2012
Last night on The Food Networks Iron Chef Birmingham’s Chef Chris Hastings of Hot and Hot Fish Club beat Bobby Flay!

The Shrimp and Grits are my favorite and Doughnuts with Chocolate Mousse, toasted coconut and Coconut ice cream is DIVINE!!
