The new La Terraza Rum & Lounge, in the former Acadia space in a Kavanaugh Boulevard office building in Little Rock's Hillcrest, is a mom and pop and son and daughter-in-law restaurant and bar, or is that a bar and restaurant? Venezuelan couple Carlos Valdivieso and Ana Lara transplanted a place they ran for two decades in Caracas, Venezuela; you can spot them coming in and out of the kitchen, with son and daughter-in-law co-owners Armando and Sarah Bolanos running the front of the house.

Peter Case has found a highway worth memorializing and it goes through Arkansas. Not as famous as Route 66 or as well traveled locally as Interstate 40, it's U.S. 62, which puts it just one numeral above another famous roadway -- one made famous by Bob Dylan -- Highway 61, which, of course, Dylan "re-visited."

Lee Strother, principal and vice president of brokerage at real estate broker Colliers International, says that through his representation, Pei Wei Asian Diner, LLC has leased 3,000 square feet at 17701 Chenal Parkway, Little Rock, which happens to be the address of the Promenade at Chenal. Although the folks in the upscale shopping center's marketing department wouldn't confirm or deny the pending new tenant, Cassie Cooper, Pei Wei's assistant brand manager, did confirm that the lease has been signed and that the restaurant will be sharing a building with a business that has not yet signed its lease. Pei Wei's first Little Rock outlet opened in October 2006 in the Midtowne Little Rock center, West Markham Street and University Avenue; there's also one in Rogers.

DEAR CAROLYN: My wife has a habit that totally annoys me. Whenever we go to a restaurant, she always asks for a bite from my plate. I tell her that if she wanted that dish, she should have ordered it.
