Restaurant Transitions: Lunch ends at Bruno's; Arkansas Italian Food Festival; Cantina Cinco de Mayo coming to downtown

posted: 01/18/2018 4:30 a.m. Discuss

Friday was the last day of lunch service for Bruno's Little Italy, 310 Main St., Little Rock. Co-owner Gio Bruno explains that, "Because we do everything from scratch, the amount of extra prep and the amount of payroll to accomplish that (as well as having line cooks, servers and hosts each day)," they've never been able to make a profit in their yearlong experiment with lunch. Lack of available daytime parking has also been a factor, he suggests: "At night we have free valet parking, but in the daytime, if there is the slightest bit of [inclement] weather, we lose all our walk-in business." They've returned to dinner-only hours, 5-10 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday. The phone number is (501) 372-7866.

As with any musical strain, there are long, twisted roots winding beneath the rhythms of what is currently called Americana, or alternative-country, or country rock. These roots fan out, taking form as bluegrass, blues, rockabilly, folk and other similar-but-different sounds that eventually sprout into other, more accessible branches like rock 'n' roll and country.

Tell Me About It: Retiree still searching for what the future has in store

posted: 01/18/2018 1:40 a.m. Discuss

DEAR CAROLYN: I retired over a year ago from a fairly high-powered job that gave me worldwide recognition in my field. The decision to retire (in my mid-70s) was a very difficult one because I was not sure I could fill my time with engrossing activities. I'm still trying -- with a combination of volunteering, mentoring and a few consulting gigs -- but haven't settled in comfortably, and I find the situation emotionally difficult.

DEAR HELOISE: I write and read a lot of emails for work and for personal use. All that reading can strain my eyes.

On Christianity

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: My uncle is active in his church and all that, but when he gets behind the wheel of his car he's an absolute maniac. Maybe you could say something about the need for safe driving. We're afraid he's going to kill someone one of these days.
