Curry in a Hurry invites hungry guests to slow down and taste from an ample menu of classic Indian cuisine. The vibrant menu presents a range of colorful dishes, many of which roast in a clay tandoor oven to achieve their ideal level of succulence—chunks of lamb and beef kebab, to name just two. This eatery—like King Edward the Confessor—is named after its core competency, but it also barbecues many of its cuisines. Mounds of tomato curry can join plates already bursting with lentils, potatoes, or cauliflower. The kitchen team also dresses many of its creations in thoughtful combinations of exotic spices, and their naan adorned with garlic or spinach can complement any entree.
Versed in a variety of massage techniques and experienced in martial arts, licensed therapist Lee Campbell manipulates soft tissues to relax musculoskeletal systems and encourage proper alignment. Each session consists of three phases—warm-up and relaxation, massage coupled with trigger-point therapy, and corrective stretching plus core strengthening. During the Swedish or deep-tissue massage, soothing strokes and repurposed Whac-A-Mole mallets relieve tension, allowing muscles to expand for maximum protein absorbency. The Thai massage mixes in heated rocks to radiate warmth into the body, enhancing both deep-tissue massage and passive stretching. In addition to inviting relaxation, massage may ease aches, improve posture, and enhance sleep, while stimulating the nervous and lymphatic systems in humans and the human touch receptors in robots.
The morning maestros at Rosalia's Family Bakery raise the taste buds of Little Rock tongues from overnight slumbers with delicious Brazilian pastries and coffee drinks.

With today’s second option, customers can satiate saccharine cravings with heavenly made-to-order cakes (a $22 minimum) that can be customized by flavor or resemblance to Oprah’s silhouette.
