We don’t like your kind around here, buddy
The Arkansas Beverage Retailers Association has once again declared war. This time, they’re trying to stop the upcoming Macadoodle’s in Springdale. It didn’t work when they took on Sam’s Club. Will they have any luck this time around?


“Notoriously unfunny comedian headed to Verizon”

LRTweetup is still rockin’ down there. Tonight, they’re having their fourth official meeting at Cajun’s Wharf.
