Prevail Union Coffee Shop

Tuesday, July 25, 2017

By: Anna Shay Wasden

If you thrive on unique places with impeccable tastes, then Prevail Union Coffee Shop needs to be at the top of your list. Prevail makes you feel as if you are in Brooklyn, New York rather than a mile from the Montgomery Capitol building. Prevail roasts their own coffee and imports from providers in the Deep South. They pride themselves on their relations with local farmers and agree with William Faulkner’s quote, "man will not merely endure, he will prevail... because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion, sacrifice and endurance.” Prevail’s vibe is unlike anything else. With hip seating arrangements and a gift shop in-store, you might want to skip the to-go and settle down for a relaxing experience. Their menu has all your favorites including lattes, cappuccinos, tea, and hot cocoa.

Visit Prevail Union Coffee at One Court Square in downtown Montgomery. For a complete menu visit their website

RSVP Takes the Skies

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

By: Anna Shay Wasden

A recent List patron, Erik Box, gave the RSVP team a once in a lifetime opportunity this morning. Through his company, Box Aviation, Erik offered to take us on an aerial tour of our very own home city. And let us tell you, Montgomery is even more beautiful from 1000 feet above.

After a short drive to the bunker just past the Montgomery Airport, we took a quick tour of the on-site planes. Both privately-owned and Box Aviation planes filled the bunker. We went straight into the Box Aviation office where we were greeted by Erik and his staff. We got a quick run-down of plane procedures, strapped on our seatbelts, put on our headphones, and off we went. We toured the entire city of Montgomery: from downtown, all the way to Hampstead Living. The views of the Capital City were unparalleled; an experience we will not soon forget!

Box Aviation offers services spanning the entire aircraft-needs span. Flight Training, Aerial Photography, Discovery Flights, and Aircraft Management are a few of their most popular services. For more information visit their website.

We at RSVP want to thank Box Aviation for this truly elevated experience! Happy Flying!
