As usual in our new home we have some fully custom home made hot dogs on July 4th, and we like to cook them weiners up. Also the next day we traveled to Two Rivers Park Bridge and biked all the way (4 miles) into Maumelle park and discovered mini farms. I guess for $30/month you can rent a small plot of land to plant your own garden and raise different species of produce. Was cool and an epic July 4th adventure.

Check out the gallery above, and my new bike I got at GIANT bikes.
So this quick video of my next trail Ranch North Woods Preserve on the Little Maumelle River must have once been an epic trail. However the people who donated it or maintaining it have done a complete shit job, this trail is over run with forrests, trees, mud, and no clear paths. Plus a million swarms of bugs, etc, this trail needs ALOT of love before I ever step foot back in here. However walking in and out of the trail has some beautiful scene views. Quick photo/video below of the experience.
As you can see it’s right off the main thoroughfare.
This park is confusing, it has a pond that you can walk around and hang out (mostly for HS kids to get drunk at I’m sure but also a trail that leads you to a mountain of climbing. We had to opt to turn back because it ended up being downed trees and very uncleaned pathways. However did spot a cool rock formation along the way. However I will attempt Connor Park again soon as they hopefully clean it up a bit.
Any clue what this is?
Check out this dope action! Shout out to Youtube for helping me build my own shelf in my garage, it’s legit yo!
Another trail down, this one the River Mountain Park Trail… by far the most treacherous of the trails I’ve done so far because it was in the middle of a neighborhood. You park on the side of the road and bam all of a sudden your in the forest.
It was an amazing sight thought to find this beautiful trail in the middle of suburbia. It’s a 2.9 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail. Has a river that runs through in and a dope ass waterfall pond. I only made it half way and turned back, but during winter time I want to take this trail on all the way and back. River mountain was a 3 on 1-5.
Beautiful pond along the way, also check out some raw footage below.
Found this place on Yelp and was super curious as to what it’s image exactly was. Wasn’t boasting it self as a high-end steak house, nor a low end so had to give it a whirl.
Front of Butcher Shop
Butcher Shop is a huge building, with an open floor plan, kind of retro 90’s style which is cool, a lot of the older crowd enjoying themselves and an open kitchen towards the back.
Butcher Shop Menu
Our waitress at Butcher Shop was excellent, our food was decent, and a classic type place to enjoy a meal. This is a family restaurant that you could enjoy 5-6 days a week if you lived in the area and just wanted to enjoy some decent food and great service. Had the prime roasted beef which was tasty, and adding the sauce on top with a house salad and fully loaded baked potato. Tasty.
Last trip to Izzy’s Meal, probably be the last for awhile. While the aspect of this place having a large gluten free menu’s initial draw has died down it was time to judge it on quality and so far I can honestly say I haven’t had one meal that was “epic”. It’s also mediocre food which lacks any flavor to be honest. It’ll be awhile before I go back!
Gluten Free Review
+server had to check with chef on any item if it was gluten free
+eh no dedicated gluten free menu
I’ve wanted to back here to give this place another chance maybe a better waiter so I will do that soon to try and get it 5 stars. We were seated at the bar and then the bar had a light that was like a strobe light so had to move chairs next to another table next the back bar.
Kemuri Chillin, a decent Sushi option in LR
The service was good however he had no any of any gluten free options nor what contained soy sauce, etc so probably the reason wasn’t as pleasant. We got a bottle of Sake which was excellent (he did know his Sake) and we got some Robota appetizer I think? Was like filet beef sticks and also some roasted pork belly appetizer which was excellent, the apps were great. The sushi however was 3/5, it didn’t taste fully fresh and the rice as soon as you picked it up with the chopsticks fell apart, the sushi chef that night was terrible. I’ll be back soon though because it’s def a hot spot and got real busy bar side before we left.
