Valentine's kaput

Posted By on Fri, Mar 20, 2009 at 12:51 PM

Valentine's, the fine Italian restaurant in the Arkansas Travelers' Dickey-Stephens Park, the labor of love of now-retired Traveler GM Bill Valentine, will close Monday. That's the report in Arkansas Business.

Reading between the lines of what Valentine told me after his abrupt retirement recently, I believed Valentine's would continue only, as he said then, "for the time being." And that the time might not be long.

The Travelerocity blog predicts a sports bar in its place. Valentine himself mentioned this rumored possibility to me.

I'm still thinking we don't know the entire story of Valentine's departure from the scene.
