Restaurant Transitions: Hawgz Blues Cafe to open in ex-U.S. Pizza spot; The Meteor coffee shop/bakery sets May opening

posted: 03/23/2017 4:30 a.m. Discuss

Hawgz Blues Cafe is going into the former Aydelotte's/U.S. Pizza mansion, 5524 John F. Kennedy Blvd., North Little Rock, with a March 31 soft opening, featuring "A Taste of Hawgz Blues Cafe"; a special April 4 "Celebration Day Honoring Dr. Rev. MLK Holiday in Arkansas"; and a grand opening slated for April 14. A building inspector for the North Little Planning Director told our ace reporter Jake Sandlin that the move-in has involved just some cleaning up and adding some paint so the project has not required a building permit; however, according to a news release, "Currently, our restaurant is undergoing a major remodeling and refurbishing -- inside and outside."

Helpful Hints

posted: 03/23/2017 1:45 a.m. Discuss

DEAR HELOISE: Right about now, many people start to think of gardening. To get seedlings started, I cut off the lid to an egg carton (foam or cardboard) and use the individual egg slots. I place dirt in each egg holder and plant two or three seeds in them. When it's time to plant, I carefully lift out the plants, soil and all. Not only do I get a start on my garden, but it's a wonderful way to introduce my children to the enjoyment of gardening.
