  1. Glad you enjoyed your visit to Little Rock. Downtown has definitely changed since the last time you were here. Yes. We are undergoing a widening of the freeway through downtown. Next time you are in the area spend a little time across the river in downtown North Little Rock, or what we call Argenta. It has gone through it’s own transformation.
  2. Passed by it a few nights ago and was a little surprised when I saw it lit up. It’s been a while since I’ve driven 30.
  3. Finally seeing a 2 at the beginning of Little Rock’s population. I thought Conway would have passed NLR in this census but it is barely hanging on for second largest population in the metro.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. I have occasionally and I read this on my iPad.
  7. Yes. It will be on E-175’s and it will be a Saturday only flight from what I have read.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. I’ll miss the direct flight to Vegas. Need the competition to Atlanta. Those prices can be high on Delta.
  12. Cannibal and Craft, a bar which has a location on Dickson St. in Fayetteville, is opening in the old Ernie Biggs location.
  13. 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.
  14. 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?
