CHICK-FIL-A TO DOWNTOWN

image

On my way out from the Metropolitan tower, I saw the new business opening there in May. I know there are a lot of you Chick-Fil-A fans out there so look for the new downtown location soon!

(I wonder if they are going to pass out a years supply of Chick-Fil-A for the first few hundred customers like they usually do. I can see a mass of people camped out in the lobby the night before!)

RECREATION STUDIOS ON MAIN STREET

This Thursday afternoon I am giving a special Bobby’s Bike Hike Tour for the 2013 Little Rock Sustainability Summit, so this evening I took a test run of the tour route. Plus, the weather this evening was awesome and I felt a little guilty about sitting around watching TV. I ended up biking down Main street on my way home and was surprised to find a lively storefront on the 600 block of Main. The ReCreation Studios were open tonight after their grand opening earlier this week. I had forgotten reading about it in the Arkansas Times in their Main Street Issue last week but was glad to see a lively new storefront on Main this evening! I picked up a schedule, (ReCreations Class Schedule), and got to speak with one of the owners, Camille Rule. Her and her boyfriend, Danny Kavanaugh run the studio and live in the apartment above. Camille and I had a good talk about Main Street and new projects that were in the works. Hopefully I will have lots more posts about Main Street as things begin to unfold!

STUDIO MAIN ANNUAL REPORT

UntitledSo I’m a little behind on writing about this, but I am very proud none the less to present Studio Main’s Annual Report for 2012. We have been open now for a year now this past February and thanks to Heather Davis for putting together such a great document! It seemed to me like we had just done a little here and there until I flipped through our Year Summary and really saw all that Studio Main has accomplished this past year. Follow the link blow to see our report and please stop by during our 2nd Friday Gallery Opening or visit our website at http://studiomainar.tumblr.com/ if you would like to get involved or if you’re just curious to see what we’re up to. Hope to see you soon!
