Jack Pearadin and Doug Nelsen found a 1.73-carat diamond after nearly a year of searching the park's field.
One of the oldest restaurants in town and still serving up the old-fashioned Italian comfort food – spaghetti, lasagna, veal parmigiano, etc. – that old-timers remember. Ken's Pasta, one of our favorites from way back is still on the menu too, and still good. ("A dieter's delight! Fresh mushrooms, onions, celery, bell pepper, garlic and diced tomatoes in a tomato sauce, served over cavatapi.") The minestrone here is thick and hearty, perfect for a cool day. There's pizza too, some of the selections out of the ordinary. Monday through Thursday, every night is a "special" night of one kind or another. Tuesday night, when kids eat free, is especially popular with families. The servings are generous. 12111 W. Markham St. (Rock Creek Square). Full bar. CC. $$-$$$ 501-219-2244. LD Mon.-Sat.
