Bar

“Mark White's Moe’s Original Bar B Que and Blues Revue is a BBQ Mecca on the Eastern shore. Converted from a historic home constructed in the 1960s, this popular neighborhood eatery features floor-to-ceiling pine, fireplaces, plenty of porch space, and a carriage house-turned-bar which truly incorporates the essence of our "All Things Southern" theme. Add in delicious Alabama BBQ and tasty sides served up seven days a week plus live blues playing every weekend and this joint screams BBQ and blues.”

Stadium
“Ladd Stadium is home of college footballs annual Senior Bowl. "To have 500 former players on active NFL rosters emphasizes the fact that each year the Senior Bowl features the future stars of the league." Some of the today's biggest NFL stars played in the Senior Bowl. Nearly every season, at least 30 percent of the league is comprised of players whose road to the NFL started in Mobile, Alabama.”
