The Box to reopen soon 

When The Box, long one of Little Rock's finest purveyors of delicious greasy burgers, closed shop on South Main Street last April to make room for a USA Drug, owner Kelly Joiner promised to reopen in the old Wooley Electric Supply building on the corner of Seventh and Ringo by June 2010. More than a year later, just when we were beginning to despair, we heard Joiner tell KUAR's Ron Breeding that the restaurant is just weeks away from opening. The delay stemmed from re-plumbing, rewiring and installing new floors, Joiner said. Old-line Box fans worried that the magic will be gone, take heart: The grill and fryer from the South Main location are moving to Seventh Street.

This week's update on Browning's Mexican Grill's incremental opening: At press time, the restaurant remained open only for dinner, from 5 p.m.-10 p.m. daily serving a limited menu. The full menu might debut by Wednesday according to a Browning's employee and lunch could begin by the end of the week, but that was the word last week, too.

    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.
