The Little Rock Convention and Visitors Bureau has announced that the 39th Annual National Bikers Roundup is coming to the State Fairgrounds this week, bringing in 40,000 motorcyclists from all over the country. It will be the first time that the National Bikers Roundup, founded by African-American motorcyclists, has been held in Arkansas.

The roundup, here Aug. 3-7, is the largest camping motorcycle camping rally in the U.S.; more than 1,000 clubs participate. The event always includes a food drive; this year's event benefits Arkansas Foodbank.
The rally's Facebook page says the event will feature performances by Nicky Parrish, Urban Mystic and Calvin Richardson on Friday, along with karaoke, kids events, domino tournaments and more. Harley-Davidson Motorcycles will showcase the bikes and biking accessories. Admission is $20 "with colors," $30 without.

    Contrary to rumor, Live Life Chill, the bar/restaurant in the erstwhile Revolution Taco and Tequila Lounge space at the corner of Cantrell and President Clinton Avenue, is not closed. Service manager Lindsey McFadin called the Times this afternoon to say a rumor the bar had closed was killing business; by 3 p.m., no one had been in. The Times, too, had heard the rumor from a number of sources. What has changed, McFadin said, is that the bar is now only open from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
