Taste of Downtown: Riverside Restaurant

Riverside Restaurant is a southern diner located right in downtown Florence. Decorated with photos from old westerns and cowboy accessories, this small local owned restaurant even includes a jukebox full of country classics. The restaurant was built somewhere around 1959 and has been in the possession of the current owner for 25 years. Just walking through the front doors takes you back to the year it opened, complete with the mild scent of cigars smoked by their loyal patrons as they enjoy their morning coffee. Children ran and chattered about as their parents spoke cheerfully to someone they hadn’t seen in a long time. It captured the era it was built in perfectly and did not leave anything to be desired or lose any of the downright friendly behavior you would expect from a restaurant of this caliber.

Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you can find a classic southern breakfast such as country ham or, if you’re in the mood for supper, could go for a juicy burger. My husband and I went for brunch so I opted for the classic gravy and biscuit combo while he ordered the blt; however, that was no easy choice! There were so many great foods to choose from including top favorites such as catfish or the ribeye steak, I had to work hard to keep my husband from drooling all over the menu. We both got sweet tea and yes, it is as sweet as your grandmother’s. They are open Monday through Thursday from 6:00am to 10:00pm and Friday and Saturday from 6:00am to midnight. You can find them at 111 East Limestone Street in Florence, Alabama.

Shoals MTB Wildwood Time Trial!

It’s that time again!

The strava times may say one thing, but this race will give you true bragging rights!

We should be done in time for football!

Bring your bike, your body, a helmet, and a bit of want to go fast!

Hecklers welcome!

We will have the course cleaned, marked, and ready for the race by next Saturday if you want to preride.

For those who haven’t been to Wildwood, it is a mixture of bumpy twists, daring climbs, and mild downhill sections that require technical riding skills. This is a pretty tough route that will take every square inch of your lungs to make it out without getting off the bike (if a root doesn’t get your back tire spinning!)

No entry fee, but if you wish to donate to our cause, feel free to!

Here There Be Dragons

In this special event celebrating the upcoming Renaissance Faire, we’ll be making dragon eyes and discussing our favorite fantasy books! For more information, call (256)764-6564 ext 24 or email teens@flpl.org.
