Even my 10-year-old son is getting excited! Now, to set a budget, and figure out a way around it.

I can probably help with that ... I'm pretty good at justifying about anything!

Nah ... have to count days the way we did years ago, when I was a Navy wife ... you don't count tomorrow, because it's almost here and you don't count the day before you'd leave, so that comes to 22 days. LOL

No ... you've just never been a Navy wife trying to shorten the wait time for a ship to come back in. LOL Actually, I lengthened the wait time by about a day! You don't count today. You don't count tomorrow, because it's nearly here and you don't count the day your leave. -3 days. Then ... you don't count the day that you plan to arrive, you don't count the day before you leave and you don't count the day before that. -3 days again. See??? Makes perfect sense.

Harking back to the original post....

Wonder what non-pen related activities the area offers for those of us on the extended stay agenda? Restaurants? Clubs? Shops? Museums?
Cab fare? Shuttle service? :unsure:

Mauricio listed some, I think. I'm guessing here, but the hotel probably has a restaurant and area for adult beverage. Outside the hotel, I haven't a clue as I've only driven past Little Rock on my way to Texas. I've been to Hot Springs several times, tho, but that's a ways from LR.

Actually, there's a ton of stuff to do right on Clinton Ave, across the river from the hotel. If you venture down Main a little bit, you can visit the Arkansas arts center for free.

Adult Beverages sounds like an excellent idea... Although I am still trying to figure out how I am going to pull all this off when I work at night, and sleep during the day.

That could be tricky. Well, hope you're able to come up with a way to attend the show, work your night shift and still rest. Naps are fine, but a lot depends on the type of work done and the shift. Hope you'll be able to make it!
