Eureka Springs, Arkansas

Downtown Eureka Springs:

It's hard to explain, but the downtown area is on three levels. One road goes up, and one road goes down......... Many buildings simultaneously occupy both levels. Some stores are located in the middle of the building so you have to climb up or down stairs on the outside of the building (not at all 'wheelchair accessible').

A fantastic restaurant, called Oasis, is located on the very
un-PC level. It has the best home made salsa I've tasted in a very long time.

This restaurant is nothing to look at......... Had it not been highly recommended, I would have walked in........ and right back out.

The decor is eclectic to say the least. I think they had my grandmother's kitchen table, peeling linoleum floor, my mom's burnt orange macrame plant hanger....... Thrift shop decor.

I had a portobello/ spinach/ chèvre enchilada...... To die for.

The town leans towards the hippie end of the spectrum. This bar boasts that they sell liquid marijuana (got a bad reflection on the sign).

I don't know about you, but I know what marijuana smells like....... Can't imagine that it could possibly taste good. Blech :P

Blatant phallic suggestion...... Just sayin'.

The town would be such a hoot in warmer weather.

Gotta find yourself a way to visit this place.
