Hummingbirds in HSV Ruby-throated Hummingbird, male - Photo by Vic Prislipsky

By Norma Wall, President, HSV Audubon


housands of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, with jewel-like colors and legendary aeronautical skills, will soon be arriving in Hot Springs Village, making their annual migration to spend the summer in the warmer Arkansas climate. Be on the lookout for these beautiful creatures to arrive in late March or early April, flying from Mexico and Central America. Most hummingbirds weigh about as much as a penny, yet eat about seven times an hour. So, you can expect them to arrive hungry. Most won’t pass up an easy nectar meal from a feeder. You can attract these tiny warriors with feeders and flower gardens, and they may award you with a show of fearless flight - hummingbirds can fly upside-down and in reverse. Brew up some homemade nectar for these tiny feathered friends using the recipe below. Hummingbird Nectar: Combine one part table sugar to four parts hot tap water. Mix well, cool, store in the refrigerator. Do not use red food coloring, sugar substitute or honey. Clean feeders and change nectar every three days to prevent mold build up during warm weather. Do not use bleach, insect sprays or petroleum-based products on feeders. For more fun facts about hummingbirds, visit hsvbirds.org.

Ageless Bikers Club Offers Fitness and Fun


f you’re looking for the opportunity to exercise while enjoying the beautiful Ouachita region’s scenery, then consider joining the Ageless Bikers Club (ABC) of Hot Springs Village. The group rides on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays throughout the year, weather permitting, in Hot Springs Village and around the region on paved roads. And from April through November, rides also include a monthly trip on the Arkansas River Trail and lunch at Flying Saucers in Little Rock. Scheduled rides are on hilly, paved roads that are quiet with little traffic, according to David Obrien, the

group’s Ride Guide. “I have been with the Club for 5 years now and find the motorists very respectful,” he says, noting most of the members ride road bikes or hybrids because “mountain bikes don’t do well unless your legs are 20 years old or younger.” The group tells new people who want to join that there are “no dues, no fees, no membership requirements, no commitment to show, and no rules,” but be sure to bring your biking helmet or you might hear a lecture about safety. Started about 15 years ago, ABC members developed riding routes that attracted those who were interested in challenging rides as well as people

Sutton and her husband have three children and live in Benton, though she says she would love to move to Hot Springs Village one day. For now, Sutton is content with the perfect fit she has found practicing medicine in Hot Springs Village.

Security a Priority for HSV Police Department


ot Springs Village is a great place to live and work, according to Police Chief Ricky Middleton. And he should know. Chief Middleton has worked in Hot Springs Village for 37 years, serving with the Police Department for 30 years - the past three as Chief. With 18 certified officers, 24-hour dispatch and a 911 answering point, the Police Department works hard to select the “right” candidates for the fully functional department. And as a result, Middleton says his officers are “very professional, courteous, polite and helpful,” in short, one of the “best” police departments in the area. Security is a priority, according to the Chief, who notes “it’s not Mayberry, but our problems are minor,” with lower crime rates compared to other areas. As the largest gated

community in North America, this is no small thing. He says the department works to promote neighborhood watch programs, noting he depends on Villagers involved to be his “eyes and ears,” keeping him informed. For Villagers who want to take a more active role, the Police Department offers the Citizen’s Police Academy. More than 250 people have completed the training. Many of those who have completed the volunteer training have joined the Hot Springs Village Citizen’s Police Academy Alumni Association. The group has raised funds to provide an electronic fingerprinting system, body cameras, portable police radios and more. In addition, the Hot Springs Village Citizen’s Police Academy is hosting “Murder at the Midnight Hour,” an interactive murder mystery dinner fundraiser at the Coronado Community Center March 12. Dinner and show are $25 per person at hsvticketsales.com or by calling 501922-5050.

“Hive” Offers Social and Gastro Experience in HSV


xperience a place like no other in Hot Spring Village at the Beehive Neighborhood Hangout. This gastropub offers residents and visitors alike a “social and gastro experience,” says Cindi Erickson, Beehive co-owner and Village resident. Whether you’re looking to catch up with friends over drinks, share some delectable eats, cheer on your favorite team on one of their TVs, including one with an 11-foot screen, or listen to some seriously good live music, the Beehive’s laid-back vibe is the place to be. Located at 220 Minorca Road, Village resident Greg Jones discovered the vacant Beehive Florist shop and imagined it being renovated into a one-of-a-kind social establishment that stays open late, has frequent diverse entertainment, and serves creative and fresh, locally sourced food and libations – all delivered in a southern chic setting. Cindi Erickson, Gordy Lowery, and Greg’s wife, Trisha, embraced the vision and all three are co-owners. The “Hive” is NOT a restaurant or a sport bar. “People shouldn’t come expecting a plated meal,” says Erickson. “Think in terms of sharable plates with a party of friends. You can order as little or as much you want.” And the Beehive is open late, something owners were excited to offer in Hot Springs Village.


If you appreciate an upscale active social environment with diverse entertainment, great ambiance and creative food options, check out the “Hive. The Beehive also hosts before and after parties surrounding Village concerts, tournaments and events. Book the Beehive for private parties, meetings, or events during non-operating hours. For more information, go to BeehiveHSV. com or call 501-777-8176.

JV Farms Grows Healthy Animals, Veggies and More


or Jay & Valorie Lee, owners of JV Farms, farming is a family thing. The homestead farm, located in Bismarck, was settled by their great-great grandparents back in the 1850’s. They grew up helping their grandparents raise a garden, milk cows, canning and freezing produce and curing and smoking bacons and hams, and more. “Today’s “JV Farms” is a direct re-

flection of all the past generations work and their knowledge handed down to us,” says the couple on their website. “We grow healthy animals, veggies, eggs, and berries, ... the way food was grown before all the fancy marketing words! Eating good is the first step to feeling good, and your knowing your farmer and your food is important to us!” JV Farms is one of a group of local

SQZBX Pizza and Brew Flavors Sing


reshly made pizza and microbrews on tap – that’s why we’re singing the praises of SQZBX (Squeezebox, which is another name for accordion) Brewery and Pizza Joint which is coincidentally located in a piano shop. From the bar made of old piano parts to a rotating menu of microbrews, this family run pizza parlor is all about great food, custom brews and live entertainment! The SQZBX concept is simple, says Zachary Smith, who owns the joint with this wife, Cherla Roorda. “We take simple, fresh ingredients and turn them into delicious food and drink by hand, then serve it with love in a beautiful, comfortable environment. We serve hand-tossed pizza, the biggest salads in town, sandwiches on home-made hoagies, and we brew our own beer and cider right here.” SQZBX is the life and

Visit Buenos Aires for Authentic Argentinian Dishes


ndulge your craving for delicious empanadas, grilled delicacies and fabulous deserts with a distinctive Argentinian flavor at Buenos Aires Grill and Cafe in Little Rock’s River Market. The restaurant is located at 614 President Clinton Ave., underneath Little Rock Salsa. The space is a perfect fit, says Flo Bruzatori, Buenos Aires owner and manager. She and her family moved to Sherwood from Argentina, home of Salsa dancing, about 15 years ago. And though Bruzatori is the manager, the restaurant is definitely a family affair. “We want people to feel at home here,” she says, noting that on weekends, the whole family includ-

ing her parents, siblings, husband and kids are usually helping at the restaurant. The empanadas are baked, not fried. They are flaky, tender pockets of deliciousness. And be sure to give the mixed grills a try. There are lots of steak, chicken and vegetarian options. If you are a little more adventurous, sample the Argentinian mixed grill for a true taste of the cultural traditions with sweetbreads and even blood sausage. Whatever you do, save some room for dessert. The fabulous Cuatro Leches cake, which Bruzatori says is her brother Willie’s recipe, cannot be beat. “It’s exciting to share my Argentin-

ian culture with the public and my children,” says Bruzatori. “Visit us at Buenos Aires to experience something different,” says Bruzatori. “Once you do, you will love it.”
