Rock City Kicks! 

ROCK CITY KICKS OPENING
4 p.m., Rock City Kicks. Free (with shoes to buy).

Sneaker fiends of all stripes, your prayers are answered. No more bribing your big-city friends into trips to the store and the post office. No more chancing the pitfalls of online shopping. On Thursday, in conjunction with Hillcrest's monthly Shop-n-Sip, Rock City Kicks celebrates its grand opening. Located at 623 Beechwood, next door to Hillcrest Junk and across from Kroger, the store will service a discerning sneaker clientele, folks who want more than the run of the mill selection the chain footwear stores offer. Think sneaker boutique. Proprietor Cory Bacon, who out-on-the-towners will recognize as the shred-tastic lead guitarist for Smoke Up Johnny, says he hopes to cater to a broad audience, one that includes, but isn't limited to, the urban world, skaters, vegans and his parents. He's carrying shoes from brands like Nike, Adidas Original, Puma, Asics, Onitsaka, Castle and Tiddies (a brand of sandal he says his parents wore in the '70s), as well as several apparel lines. In the beginning, Bacon plans on staying open seven days a week, from around 11 a.m. or noon till 7 p.m. or 8 p.m. The opening night party will likely stretch into the night a little while.

    One of the booths at this week's Ark-La-Tex Medical Cannabis Expo was hosted by the Arkansas Hemp Association, a trade group founded to promote and expand non-intoxicating industrial hemp as an agricultural crop in the state. AHA Vice President Jeremy Fisher said the first licenses to grow experimental plots of hemp in the state should be issued by the Arkansas State Plant Board next spring.
  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
