A local business tip sheet that I see says the U.S. Pizza on Rodney Parham has closed. (Do you think they'll EVER finish that makeover of the old Masonic lodge in Hillcrest for a new U.S. Pizza?) UPDATE: A reader thinks the closing was temporary, for repairs.
And, up in NW Ark., there are these reported closings (must be all those home-builders with overbuilt inventory): Smokey Bones, O'Charlie's, Fuddruckers.
