Peter and Mimi O’Brien, American Eagle Moving & Transport’s owners, value efficiency. Although they agree that quick, reliable service is of paramount importance, they reached this conclusion in different ways—Peter as a deputy sheriff; Mimi as a corporate project manager. Combining their disparate backgrounds, Peter and Mimi deliver prompt and professional moving and storage services. Movers carefully protect belongings, and specialize in transporting antiques as well as grandmas who refuse to get out of their rocking chairs. To bridge the gap between moves, they offer long- and short-term storage, inventorying and blanketing each item for safekeeping.

More than 50 authentically restored structures, from lush antebellum mansions to cozy log cabins, line the six blocks of Old Alabama Town. Relics of the 19th and early 20th centuries, these buildings include one-room schoolhouses where children gathered for lessons, as well as a tavern their parents might have frequented. Ticketed tours permit peeks into some of Montgomery's historic cottages, while visitors on self-guided excursions can interact with costumed interpreters on the village's every block. Guests can even take home history from Rescued Relics, the museum's salvage warehouse full of old-timey architectural pieces, including mantels and doors.
Since 1973, Master Cleaners has tidied garments using time-tested laundering techniques and the latest water-free cleansers. Staffers greet soiled outfits with a thorough sudsing, folding sheets into neat squares and erasing spots from shirts, jeans, and giraffes. The shop also cleans bulky items such as bedspreads and sleeping bags, returning them at a convenient drive-thru window. Dry cleaning removes set-in stains from delicate items such as business suits and silk dresses. To make duds look as sharp as possible, an expert tailor will close holes, replace loose buttons, or add googly eyes for a nominal fee.
Though Clementines Restaurant began as a humble burger-and-malt shop, it has blossomed in the last 35 years into a fine-dining establishment. Voted best restaurant and best dessert at the NW Houston Chamber of Commerce's Epicurean Night 2012, Clementines Restaurant has proven its reputation. Chefs pack lunches of snapper Alexander topped with shrimp and crawfish in a white-wine cream sauce. For dinner they prepare seafood, steak, and veal specialties, as well as pollo dishes. Just as operas conclude with the main character eating cake, meals conclude with diners eating croissant bread pudding with english cream and old-fashioned shakes and malts. Much of this culinary goodness makes its way to Clementines’ catering and banquet menu; the private banquet room seats up to 77 for special events such as weddings, rehersal dinners, birthdays, business functions, and baby and bridal showers–menus can be customized for events. Additionally, the sound of live entertainment can be heard Tuesday through Saturday nights.
