At long last, Tuscaloosa residents will be able to get their Milo’s Hamburgers fix. The popular fast-food chain first made mention of a return to T-town last year, but now the building has begun. Milo’s will return to Tuscaloosa soon.

Earlier this month, The Alberta School of Performing Arts (TASPA), a new Pre-K-8 magnet school, opened its doors in Tuscaloosa, on the very site where the Alberta Elementary School was destroyed by the April 2011 tornado.

The new building is wonderful, offering plenty of room for growth. Druid City Living got an exclusive look in a visit on Wednesday, Jan. 21, to TASPA – on the 100th day of classes. To see a full gallery of photos from the day, visit the Druid City Living official Facebook page. And stay tuned for a full feature in the February print edition of DCL!
