6: Now that the weather has the lake in a calm mode, it’s a good time to read more about the owners of our great Lake Restaurants…this week we want to share a little about THE LANDING! Seven years after he got out of TV and radio, longtime Birmingham sportscaster, Herb Winches, is back in his element. The playing field has changed, but he’s still the same ol’ Herb. These days, you’ll find Winches running a waterfront, open air restaurant and bar, The Landing at Parker Creek. He and a business partner opened in June, in Coosa County on the northwest shore of Lake Martin. For the entire article CLICK HERE.
