A case of mistaken identity

A funny thing happened in the newsroom last week. It’s a bit of a long story, but so very entertaining. And it has to do with a new restaurant coming to town.

If you’ve been reading the newspaper lately, you probably saw the story by business reporter Brandon Riddle about the new Posta Mexican Grill coming to the Conway Towne Centre in the spot that was most recently Beef O’Brady’s. Now that you have that information, let me tell you a little about how it unfolded on our side.

Our go-to sources include all kinds of public information — building permits, etc. In the case of this restaurant, I looked up one source, Brandon looked up another, and they both said "Pasta Grill" was going in at that location. I double-checked. For about a week and a half I was convinced that everyone’s favorite Italian place was either opening a new location or moving. It didn’t make sense to anyone, but that was what the documents said.

I tried to contact them a couple of times, but it was Brandon who finally connected with them and confirmed that they had no idea what we were talking about. Then he figured out the rest of the story.

Long story short, there’s a new Mexican restaurant coming to town (cue the giggles), and, contrary to what I’ve heard far too often in online comments, we really do try our best to check facts around here.

Clinic moving

In other news, Hurley Chiropractic is moving to a new location at Meadowlake Road and Donaghey Avenue. This is going to make way for that CVS I’ve been telling you about for almost two years.

Corner to Corner

If you’re going to Corner to Corner on Friday (the late shopping event downtown), here are some of the food trucks that will be set up on Front Street: Eat My Catfish, Hot Rod Wieners, KatManDu, Waffle Wagon, Black Hound BBQ, Pie Hole, Natural State Grillers, Road Hog BBQ, Fork in the Road.

Hmm. Might be worth getting out to check out some of the food, huh?
