  1. Just read a headline from the Arkansas Times that the Capital Hotel may be reopening. They are apparently advertising for positions at the hotel. It will be nice to get it back going again.
  2. I have understood that the city has been wanting to do this for a while. If they are successful I wouldn’t be surprised if a hotel goes up there.
  3. I have occasionally and I read this on my iPad.
  4. Yes. It will be on E-175’s and it will be a Saturday only flight from what I have read.
  5. Glad to hear that it’s getting a new flag soon and one that’s on par or maybe slightly better than Crowne Plaza. Embassy Suites finished a multi million update last year.
  6. Looks like the Crowne Plaza on Shackleford is no more. Driving by there on the freeway today and I saw there was a banner saying Plaza Hotel where the Crowne Plaza sign use to be. The hotel losing it’s flag is probably because of loss of business because of covid. Hopefully once things get better and travel picks up someone will come in, update the hotel and put a more prominent flag on it. It will need it with an updated Embassy Suites and a new Aloft in WLR.
  7. That’s two huge spaces at the outlet that will be empty. With the way retail is going it’s going to be hard to fill those spaces. Will probably have to sub divide in order to fill and that will even be difficult.
  8. I’ll miss the direct flight to Vegas. Need the competition to Atlanta. Those prices can be high on Delta.
  9. IHOP on Maumelle Blvd is closed.
  10. Cannibal and Craft, a bar which has a location on Dickson St. in Fayetteville, is opening in the old Ernie Biggs location.
  11. United did have service from Little Rock to Denver before the pandemic hit. Maybe they removed that service because of reduced demand. I saw on LIT’s website that there are no direct flights to Charlotte and DC on American as well. Probably because of the same reason. Some of the Southwest direct flights we had previously are gone as well. Let’s hope these and the other direct flights come back when demand increases.
  12. Interesting that they are announcing service to a new destination during this time. A) they must be really confident that travel will be back to levels before the pandemic and B) are they taking a destination from Little Rock to add Denver?
  13. Great location but making a left turn heading north on University would have been insane.
  14. I guess this would be a second location for ULTA. They are one of the few retailers that were expanding before the pandemic. Sephora has a store in Park Plaza. With JCPenny filing for bankruptcy and saying they are go to close stores I’m not surprised they are suing.
  15. White County doesn’t have to touch Pulaski County to be added to the MSA and you are right that there are other factors that will determine its potential inclusion like economic ties and the amount of commuters. The question is are those factors there for White Country to be included. Searcy may be 50 miles from Little Rock but Beebe is 34 miles from Little Rock, the same as Sheridan in Grant Country. I know Searcy is the larger city in White County and has good sized employers like Harding University and Mercy Health. But are there enough commuters coming in to Pulaski County for White County to be added? Also people just have to commute into the Pulaski County. That means they could be coming into Jacksonville or Sherwood to work. That’s not as far a drive as Little Rock.
