Music City beat all of our expectations. From the honky tonk to the Southern Fried feasts, we really took Nashville by storm. The gang was ready to pack up and get GoGoing West. After 2 VERY busy weeks, I couldn’t wait for a day of relaxation.
Bentonville was the perfect place to slow down and kick back. I’ve never been to Arkansas: this town is the home of Walmart HQ and Walton’s 5 & dime - the very first Walmart store.
Here’s a shot of Walton’s 5 & 10 in downtown Bentonville. It’s now a museum, and you can follow the history of Sam Walton, and see how he built the world’s largest corporation! Pretty cool, huh?
So, what do you do when you're just off the road and have a day off, you ask? Hit the movies, and have a nice big meal. Perfection in my book.
It was tough to decide, as Bentonville has A LOT to offer from BBQ & burgers to fine dining. Genghis Grill was the place we decided on. The rows and rows of meats, vegetables, and sauces with endless combinations won my heart over. After a healthy portion, the server surprised me with the most Gogo-licious dessert – Apple cobbler, baked to perfection. Now that was a great treat!
The next day we were back to business. Our weekend mission was to keep 1,200 soccer players & fans GoGo Going at the Kick It 3v3 tournament at Memorial Park. We pulled out the slide and Bean bag toss, and hooked people up with lots of pouches of GoGo squeeZ. Most of all, folks just had to get their hands on one of our little green Pass the Play balls.
Our squeeZ Squad mostly hailed from University of Arkansas – Go Hogs!!! They did a most excellent job, and made sure everyone got hooked up with plenty of GoGo squeeZ pouches.
Now we’re off to Minneapolis, and can’t wait to visit some of the sites there. I have my heart set on a trip to Mall of America. Now, if only I can convince Captain Mike to drive me there...
