Fayetteville, Arkansas annually hosts the second largest bike rally in the USA. We were fortunate enough to be staying only an hour away from this glorious event. So when in Rome... We haven't been to Sturgis bike rally so we really can't compare the two. It was enough for us. Fayetteville historic downtown if full of unique architecture, interesting bars, and a lot of life. Today, it was full of any and all types of bikes. The age demographic was older than I expected. Our first stop was Cannibal and draft (Facebook page). I ordered off the menu as I so often do. The bartender made me a lime and basil martini. It was quite good. This place handcrafts all their drinks. Every ingredient fresh and local. Our kind of place. They don't have a website but it is a must stop when in town. Mike and I both have our motorcycle license and we have had bikes in the past. We are amazed at the diversity in bikers. At this event, clubs wore their "colors." Most of the clubs supported cancer, child abuse, etc. I thought that was pretty cool. For late lunch we stopped in at Emilia's Mediterranean Kitchen (Facebook page).They don't seem to have a website either. We were quite impressed with Fayetteville, Arkansas. Everyone working the event was friendly and gave out free water!
