I always scan the Little Rock City Board for items of interest each week and this one caught my eye: A zoning measure required by a proposal to tear down the IHOP at Markham and University.

Be of good cheer IHOP fans. Golden Cakes, Inc., which is  the IHOP franchise operator in Arkansas, is going to replace the venerable-in-age-only restaurant with a new building.


Makes me kind of nostalgic. The restaurant is more or less as it was when I frequented it often during my first year in town, in 1973.
