  1. When I think of Service Merchandise in Little Rock, that's the one I think about. In that era, there was also a movie theater and a B Daltons in that Asher & University center.
  2. Chancellor Anderson asserts that despite this shooting, UALR is one of the safest campuses in the South. My personal experience leads me to believe that's not exactly through the efforts of the on campus safety/security/police. I've had friends call them when they were threatened outside the new arena during basketball games, and had DPS ask them to wait a few minutes in their cars in the far lot. Right. One night I was in my office late. I called public safety around 11:00 at night for an escort to my car. I was told I would probably have to wait 45 minutes to an hour, because of the shift change. a 15 or 20 minute wait seemed reasonable. But being essentially discouraged from using a late night safety precaution because it was kind of inconvenient? Ugh. On the other hand, while I worked there DPS was exceptionally talented at issuing parking tickets.
  3. Where are they putting it? That parking lot just to the north of the current building?
  4. Here's a quick snap of construction progress from this morning.
  5. I remember there being one in Little Rock 17 or 18 years ago. The Dave & Buster's About page confirms that and ties to the Little Rock roots.
  6. Hear hear on the Middle Eastern, Mediteranean, and Cuban options. I'd love a Middle Eastern place that went beyond hummous and gyros. The closest we have is that counter in the Rivermarket Pavillion. Your mention of Cuban food almost makes me miss my stint in Atlanta. OK, so not really. Cuban food didn't compensate for the many drawbacks of Atlanta. Bennigan's employees would go drink there too.
  7. I had kind of idly wondered what happened to Slick Willy's. Thanks for the reminder!
  8. That explains why I heard that they were refurbishing and not rebuilding. Love the Rep and annoyed by the Rep, all at once.
  9. I am both excited by the library and by development south of I-630. Out library system has grown so much in the past 15 years.
  10. I haven't yet seen them--yay for fast forward and Tivo--but combining the words "Benton" and "comfort zone" seems like a not-too-carefully encoded way of saying "white people here." There's a difference between a comfortable place to live and a comfort zone. The former implies a quality of life, amenities, and such The latter implies "values," upbringing, a range of tolerance.
  11. There are many specific photo opportunities to be had from that building!
  12. Sunset shot of RiverMarket Tower/Place.It lacks the construction detail, of course. I think the Tuff Nutt storefronts look mighty friendly at night.
