Restaurant Transitions: Bruno’s reopening; Ira's moves to Main Street in Little Rock; Petit & Keet Bar & Grill delayed

updated: 01/19/2017 11:58 a.m. Comment 1

If you've been on the edge of your culinary seat awaiting the opening of Petit & Keet Bar & Grill sometime in February, you might as well settle back for a much longer wait. Restaurateur Jim Keet says the scope of his collaboration with Little Rock culinary legend Louis Petit, in the former Restaurant 1620/1620 Savoy, 1620 Market St., Little Rock, has expanded from a six-week, "couple of hundred thousand-dollar" to a six-month, "million-dollar project." He's now projecting an opening in late April "if we're lucky, around the first of May if we're not."

Music: Ex-Eagle Henley returns to town with band of 15

posted: 01/19/2017 1:54 a.m. Discuss

Don Henley started his stint as a solo artist back before "hell froze over" -- a reference to the Eagles' acclaimed Hell Freezes Over reunion album and tour after a 14-year hiatus -- that brought the group to Little Rock's War Memorial Stadium in May 1995. Thereafter he was a solo act, performing at what was then named Alltel (now Verizon) Arena in North Little Rock, and once again a member of the Eagles, who went on to play four more times in central Arkansas until the death of member Glenn Frey in January 2016 brought an apparent end to the most successful American rock band.

Happy birthday. You alight upon social secrets, charismatic habits and ultimately ways of bringing out the cleverness in others; they celebrate you time and again for it. February and October bring a surprise gift and money, too. Professional advancement will come in April. The travel in August will be out of character in a very fun way.
