Eat Out Local

We just returned from a trip to Madison. MS, just outside of Jackson. This is a very social community that is supposed to be a hotbed of activity.  We had a great pizza Saturday night at Soulshine Pizza Factory in Ridgeland.  Super place and very busy. The Pizza was great! The next morning we were going out for breakfast and found three restaurants in the area closed, as in “we are not going to open again”. You can see where the economy really has effected the local restaurants. I kept thinking, is it this bad in Little Rock? Well I know that one of the first things folks cut from their budget is the eating out part. There are lots of jobs out there that depend on the eating out. So if you are going to eat out, support your local restaurants and let’s keep people employed!

Buy Local!!!

Buy Local! There are so many great new places in Little Rock right now that you can buy anything you need locally. The ones that come to mind are Maddie’s Place on Rebsamen Park Road. Great cajun po’boys and a Parmesan bisque that will make you weep. Also Patio Pizza and Beer Garden. A super pizza and believe it or not, banana pudding that will make you think you are at your grandmother’s house. Last, but not least, is the Station Grocery & Deli on the corner of  Markham and Kavanaugh with some of the freshest produce you could possibly want.  So support your local stores & restaurants!!! What does that mean exactly? Well, it means that you don’t have to go to chain to great food, as a matter of fact the local places are always better than the chains. You will always get fresher more local food. We were just in Oakland,CA to see my daughter and I did not see a chain restaurant for miles. The local places are all trying to out do each other in the local market and boy are they proud of where they get their meat, veggies, etc. The best part is that these places are thriving! So do your self and your community a big favor, BUY LOCAL!!!
