After attending Attorney Wolfman’s talk it was off to a meeting with everyone involved in the courtyard project, including the artist, Jesus Moroles; representatives from Nabholz Construction and Cromwell Architects Engineers Inc.; Professor Flaccus (as a representative of the faculty committee concerned with the project); Dan Street from facilities management; Michael Holloman and Archie Shaeffer. The meeting was very productive. We were able to work through a number of issues concerning the plans landscaping of the courtyard.

Almost before I knew it, it was time to go to Little Rock, where I stopped for the night on my way to Arkadelphia. To myGunter delight I had dinner with Russell Gunter of Cross, Gunter, Witherspoon & Galchus that evening. We had d1620 restaurantinner at 1620 restaurant, and the meal was terrific. Okay, foodies, get ready for this one. My meal began with a goat cheese tart that was topped with crispy apple-smoked bacon and lump crab served with a spicy tomato puree and a cilantro emulsion. The entree was even better, believe it or not. I had Rush’s Seafood Pasta, a combination of pan-seared scallops, crawfish and crab tossed with fresh veggies and a spicy creole crème over rigatoni. The meal ended with a delicious three-chocolate medallion dessert. Russell had a really delicious hazelnut crusted grouper, and an appetizer of escargot. It was a really fabulous meal and I would highly recommend 1620 if you happen to be in the Little Rock area. Thanks to Russell Gunter (even though he’s a management lawyer! Just kidding, Russell) for a lovely evening.
