Little Rock

AR6

Arkansas. Initial reaction…a random state to go to in November…or any month of the year for that matter. But my reason for going, if you can even call this a reason, was for my dad’s beer drinking award. No, not joking, it’s a real thing.

Earlier this month my dad reached his 200th beer at the Flying Saucer in Little Rock. After you drink 200 different beers (you literally have a membership card that records what beers you drank on each night, etc) you get a metal plate on the wall of the…establishment & a free party with your friends and favorite bartenders.

Let the celebration begin…

I flew in on a Friday afternoon and met my dad at the hotel. Soon after we started walking around down town so I could get introduced to the small city. We ate dinner at the Flying Fish. (REALLY GOOD FOOD) We then made our way to the Saucer.

The following day I woke up rather early and walked around town ending up at the market place. This was essentially a building next to the river that had permanent vendors that made breakfast/lunch. I got some breakfast and hung out until my dad decided to get out of bed…

We ended up walking across a huge bridge over the Arkansas river and toured a submarine! We learned that the submarine was the longest active submarine in the world! Used for 56 years–the USS Razorback. This. Was. So. Cool. (6$)AR8

After a long walk back we climbed Pinnacle Mountain…& my legs are still feeling that climb, too.

After indulging myself in an amazing cheese and fruit plate…I began to wonder and somehow ended up on a Christmas Trolly! WOO! It was a fun way to end my final night in AR.
