ZaZa's...I'm Loving This Place! And, What South Pacific Restaurant Use To Frequent This Territory?

Had lunch at ZaZa's the other day with my number one daughter and we are both loving this old place made new again! This dotin' on local flavor joint had a steady stream of hungry patrons who were also loving ZaZa's specially made salads, soups, and stone oven pizzas. Also, this cute little modern cafe is located in the old Height's theater...boy, that's gonna date me. Yes, I remember when ZaZa's location use to house an old favorite called the Polyasian...gee, I loved that place too. It had the tropical theme going throughout with excellent waiters who miraculously remembered your order for four without writing anything down! Anyway, try ZaZa's and make your own memories...this place is surely gonna be around for a very long time. Quality local food, good service, and very reasonable prices!!

A Day At The Track

And they're off! Another fun season at Central Arkansas' very own premier horse racing showcase of the South, Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs. Tomorrow January 14th will start another year of mile high corned beef sandwiches, humongous shrimp and oysters, ice cold beer and a few short months with your favorite fillies and colts. And the horses are pretty darn fun too!

Don't forget to take extra money for those hungry little slot machines the track now has and when it's all over at the end of the day, be sure to eat at Cajun Boilers before you safely travel on home. However, if you are lucky enough to stay the night, you can attempt a room and bath at the world famous Arlington Hotel and eat at the Pancake Shop the next morning. I guarantee that these are the best and most delicious things to do when you take in a day at the track...this creature of habit has been doing just that for the last 35 years! Tally ho!
