  1. I just flew into LIT and saw a billboard in the airport announcing new service to Atlanta and Denver on Southwest Airlines.
  2. Has anyone heard an update on the Capital Hotel reopening? A former employee told me that there is chatter that it is permanently closed.
  3. The lady that owned Zaffino's has a serious health issue. I know the person who is taking the space over as a new restaurant concept.
  4. FYI: Zaffino's didn't close because of COVID-19.
  5. Nexus Coffee expanded its space to include the corner of La Harpe and President Clinton. We were just there and it was packed with people.
  6. I attempted to book the nonstop LIT–DTW flight on Delta, but it was not available. From what I gathered through searching, it will not be available until March. I guess Delta has made this a seasonal service route. We desperately need a SLC or MSP flight on Delta. It is so frustrating to fly to ATL to go west.
  7. Signage is going up on the old Dixie Cafe in Lakewood Village for Black Bear Diner. It's a west coast chain. It will be interesting to see how well it does. https://blackbeardiner.com
  8. Yes, one of the contractors is a personal friend. So exciting!
  9. FYI: NLR is set to get a Raising Cane's. Its location is in the same vicinity as Freddy's, Chick-fil-a, and Popeye's on East McCain Blvd.
  10. Today I dined at the soon-to-be-opened Purple Cow in NLR. It was great! The building is beautiful, and the food was delicious. The COO informed me that it would open to the public on Friday. Also, NLR is set to get a Raising Cane's. Its location is in the same vicinity as Freddy's, Chick-fil-a, and Popeye's on East McCain Blvd.
  11. Signs are up for Poke Hula. It is located in the shopping center that houses Pier One Imports and Cornerstone Pharmacy. This is a nice addition to the food scene in NLR.
  12. I was looking at the enplanements ONLY. In July 2018, TUL had only 20% more passengers getting on planes than LIT. My point is if LIT had a couple of strategic nonstops to west/east coast destinations, our market would grow even more—outperforming a larger market like Tulsa.
  13. I was looking at Tulsa passenger counts compared to Little Rock. Although the Tulsa Metro is considerably larger, the passenger enplanement counts are relatively close. In July 2018, LIT had 25,000 fewer enplaned passengers than TUL; however, TUL has 21 nonstop flights and LIT has 14 nonstop flights. More than likely, if LIT could secure a west coast nonstop (LAX or SLC) and an east coast nonstop (LGA/EWR/JFK), our passenger enplanement numbers would grow. I did find it interesting that Tulsa doesn't have an NYC nonstop, and LAX is only available through Allegiant two times a week.
  14. I don't buy the "changing entertainment environment" spiel! The primary reason for the Rep's woes is the terrible selection of shows. As a former subscriber, I have found that the last few years' offerings have been awful. If the Rep centered its focus on reaching the demographic of LIT, they would do shows that appeal to those who live here. This is NOT New York City, Chicago, or San Francisco. (Just my two cents!)
