The month of February saw big changes in NWA - new restaurants, coffee shops, parks, trails and more are popping up faster than Razorback Athletics national rankings. Leisurlist put together an all-inclusive guide to everything bright and shiny in NWA. Here are a few of our favorites:
Fayetteville: Lift Coffee Baris moving into the former Puritan Uptown space, which has been vacant for over a year; Wilson Park is getting a major facelift that will include covered areas to sit and eat, watch volleyball or tennis, and more; Mojo's Pints and Pies is also now open in East Fayetteville.
Bentonville: A new market from Table Mesa is coming to Downtown Bentonville - the cafe will offer coffee, baked goods, local produce, salsas, sauces (including many of Table Mesa's specialty sauces), meats, cheeses, and more!
Rogers: McClard's Bar-B-Q IS COMING TO ROGERS. The popular Hot Springs joint will open a second location in Pinnacle in the former Pinnacle Bar & Grill space and hope to open in April. 'Nuff said.
Springdale: A drive-through ONLY Starbucks is coming to Downtown Springdale, along with a Chick-fil-A franchise located at the corner of Sunset Avenue and Gene George Blvd.
