Best Reason for a Foodie Field Trip | Arkansas Food Hall of Fame’s new app

 It feels good to know where you are. At the moment, per the restaurants listed on the front page of the “Near Me” section of Arkansas Food Hall of Fame’s new app, our office is 1.4 miles from Lassis Inn and 46.2 miles from Craig’s Bar-B-Q. Launched at the tail end of June by the Department of Arkansas Heritage, the app is one that we’ve been dreaming of for years—a solution to the age-old question of “where d’you wanna go?” In addition to the basic geo-location services for both restaurants and upcoming events (the 42nd annual Hope Watermelon Festival on Aug. 9-11!), it also includes profiles of chefs and restaurants that have recently been named and nominated to the Arkansas Food Hall of Fame. In other words, for all your foodie-related questions: There’s an app for that.
