Big Rock Opening.

Amazing, the number of people who turned out for the opening of Big Rock Bistro at Pulaski Technical College's Main Campus in North Little Rock. Sure, there were oodles of students waiting for a bite for lunch... but there were also scores of others lured in by the chance to try out the new eatery for free. Good reviews all around -- yes, it was a frenzy, but the crowds were all fed, and the food was great. More on the jump.

The crowd was massive, even 10 minutes before the big ceremony.

Once inside, diners were treated to a multitude of stations -- salad bar and drink stations on the right, a pasta station and hot plate station on the left, deli and cheeseburger and hot dog options straight ahead and a pizzaria in the back. This ain't your grandmother's college cafeteria.

Even with hundreds coming through the doors, dishes were made to order in a timely fashion. Call it trial by fire, but Big Rock Bistro's opening seems to be a safe bet -- this place cooks. I'm sure we'll be hearing more about it. Oh, and a thumbs up for the potentially overlooked but certainly divine Reece's Pieces Bread Pudding.

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
