Is a high number better than a low number?

No, but 28 is still very good. Very few SEC schools made the list.

Conway must have been rated before Catfish and More closed.

have you tried the Catfish House? It`s been there longer, and is great. Give it a shot.

Next time I`m through I`m gonna try out "The Draft"  on Dave Ward drive-- having beer taps at the tables is intriguing to me, even though I`m not much of a beer drinker.

and old downtown Conway is pretty cool, especially at night.  Every time we go through my wife makes me stop at EM jeans. Last time I got some cool Southern Tide shirts with Hog Logos.

Its an interesting concept but I found that I was really bad at pouring the beer and thus wasted money. You pay per once and if you arent good at pouring, you lose money per say. They have pretty good food though and the set up is really cool.

Back in the day (1977), I was recruited to play football at UCA by Johnny Outlaw, who happened to be from my hometown. Best recruiting pitch(not from coaching staff of course-or was it), but from other athletes and friends there, was the girl to boy ratio at the school. 5 girls to every boy!!!!
Anyway AR has many fine colleges in this beautiful state. You can get a dang good education at fair price and be in a great environment and around some really nice people.

ONE OF THESE DAYS ALICE-POW!-RIGHT IN THE KISSER.

I will be closed on the 4th but I think I am going to open up for a few hours on the 5th. Probably noon to 4 or 5. Let me know if you are going to be around and I can open up for ya. Always fun to meet someone on the board.
