Local businesses in Little Rock's Southside Main Street district and up the road near the Main Street Creative Corridor have collaborated to create a small-business scavenger hunt for Saturday, Nov. 26—a.k.a. "Small Business Saturday," an event created by American Express in 2010 as an antidote to midnight madness and a way to help the "little guy" with the kind of boost that Black Friday typically gives to bigger retailers.

Wanna play? Here's how it works: Shoppers should visit participating businesses between 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. and find and photograph each shop's scavenger hunt item (shops and items listed below). Then, check in to the business on Facebook and upload the scavenged photo there or to Instagram—being sure to use #sbslittlerockar and #shopsmall. A drawing from all participants who complete the hunt will award 10 lucky winners with a goody bag; winners will be notified via Facebook or Instagram. How's that for easy and fun?

Here's where to go and what to look for:

Happy hunting, and don't forget to use those hashtags—we'll be following along to see how it goes!

    When President-elect Trump announced he would, in a few days, force Congress to enact comprehensive health insurance for everyone, poor or rich, that would provide better and cheaper care than they've ever gotten, you had to wonder whether this guy is a miracle worker or a fool.
