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!

  • Constituents go Cotton pickin' at Springdale town hall

    Sen. Tom Cotton, cordial to a fault, appeared before a capacity crowd at the 2,200 seat Pat Walker Performing Arts Center at Springdale High tonight to a mixed chorus of clapping and boos. Other than polite applause when he introduced his mom and dad and a still moment as he led the crowd in a recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance — his night didn't get much better from there.
  • Stand up for Little Rock

    If Little Rock deteriorates because of substandard schools, there will be blame aplenty to share. But some elected leaders deserve special mention.
  • Hating the media

    Presidents, with the exception of George Washington, never found much joy with the media, although Donald Trump is the first to use the scarily freighted words "enemies of the people."
