Bayes Southern Bar and Grill hoping to draw locals in off season | AL.com

December 23, 2016

Depending on who you ask, Bayes Southern Bar and Grill, the newest upscale restaurant and bar in Orange Beach, opened at a bad time of year — in the quiet of the off season when the only folks in town are college students home for the holidays or snowbirds who are just starting roll in until their exodus near St. Patrick’s Day.

On the other hand, opening in the off season allows locals to try it first — and around Orange Beach and Gulf Shores word of mouth amongst the locals can make all the difference when it comes to a restaurant’s success. It’s a tricky time to open a restaurant in a region where some restaurants close their doors until spring. But the idea for Bayes is to use this slow time to draw the finicky locals.

December 22, 2016

Ohio coach Frank Solich said it’s not only Troy’s offensive line that has accounted for the nation’s lowest sack total – quarterback Brandon Silvers has something to do with it, too.

“Their quarterback is a very smart quarterback, excellent thrower, gets rid of the ball very quickly, identifies open guys quickly, gets the ball to them, is able to move around in the pocket, scramble, make some runs with his legs,” Solich said of the former Gulf Shores High School standout. “It’ll certainly be a situation where we’ll have to work for everything we get.”

Orange Beach to expand seawall work | The Islander

December 14, 2016

ORANGE BEACH — As the city contemplates expanding its work on the state-owned fishing wall under the Perdido Pass Bridge, a citizen asked if perhaps the state could contribute some financial help.
