Re: “Flying DD takes off

I just stumbled across this comment after a couple of months of not thinking about it.

I like how you assume that I don't like your bar because I'm an ugly, lazy, fat unemployed slob. You know nothing about me, other than the fact that I didn't like your bar. I don't work for your competition. I'm employed in a different industry.

I've never been in a Rivermarket bar on an average Saturday night and seen less than 10 people.

You keep spouting that you cater to "active, attractive people," but the truth is that you have to PAY girls to hang out in your bar.

A drink special means nothing when you jack up the prices on the front end.

Re: “Flying DD takes off

I really think you must have gone to a completely different bar. Either that or, like "Out on the Rock," the old Arkansas Times has a financial stake in "Flying DDs" which has the distinction of being the worst bar I've visited in Arkansas.

There is no atmosphere to speak of--it's located in an old dealership service garage that looks like an old dealership service garage filled with crap from Garden Ridge. The main lounge touts red leather couches even Christian Audigier would find tacky. The back area isn't much better. In addition to the row upon row of single-piece, molded plastic tables (better suited for a prison yard than a bar) there's a single, forlorn set of wicker patio furniture (again, Garden Ridge).

The Saturday night I visited the place was completely empty. There wasn't a drink special (because it was Saturday) and their normal prices are out of control. Expect to spend what you would spend at a Rivermarket bar, except the bar is in the middle of nowhere, sketchy looking, and completely empty. Whitewater/Pizza D's prices would be more in line given the establishment.

I can't believe you were even able to mention their food. The only thing I walked away from their menu with was the understanding that they cut every single corner to make sure there was ZERO cooking involved on their menu. Their "cheese" and "chili" options are obviously straight from a can. Their produce, deli meat, and bread seems to be supplied by Wal-Mart. They don't even have a fryer to offer proper fries. Instead, you get chips in a bag.

While I was at the bar (with, no lie, 8-9 other people) a few people walked in, payed their cover, and then left. I wish I would have done the same. It would have made for a better night.
