Hot Springs AR Wine & Food Fest

October 11th, 2015 by Jenna Tackett

Hot Springs Wine & Food FestHot Springs National Park is known for its many attributes–the historic district downtown, the Gallery Walk experience, gorgeous lakes and hiking trails, the exquisite Garvan Woodland Gardens, Magic Springs amusement park, and so much more. But it is also known for the quality of its local restaurants, and that list would not be complete without Central Park Fusion.

Last year, Central Park Fusion hosted the first Hot Springs Wine & Food Fest to support Project Hope, a food bank mission that distributes 60,000 pounds of food to agencies in West Arkansas. The event was a tasty success, and this year’s event on Saturday, October 17, promises to be even better.

The chef from Central Park Fusion, Chef Matt Fuller, will prepare savory hors d’oeuvres paired with complimentary wines. There will also be a silent auction, with all proceeds going to Project Hope. You can experience the atmosphere of Central Park Fusion while helping those in the community that would otherwise go hungry.

Lookout Point, only a few minutes away from Central Park Fusion, would love to welcome you on your luxurious getaway. There is gourmet breakfast, peaceful views of Lake Hamilton, and a garden sanctuary waiting for you to enjoy! You can reserve your stay online or call 501.525.6155 for information.

Tesla Car Chargers

Electric Car Chargers

 

Select Registry is the first independent hospitality organization to enroll this quantity of properties all at once, and the only group that consists of unique and quality-assured lodging. Select Registry joins a rapidly-growing network in Tesla’s program, in which Tesla partners with hotels, resorts, and restaurants around the world, offering High Power Connectors at locations where drivers have time to charge their vehicles for a couple of hours, or overnight.  We are definitely proud to be a member of Select Registry, and to offer these new charging stations!

Tesla’s growing Supercharger network (now 425 stations along frequently-traveled highways) has inspired Model S owners to hit the road in increasing numbers. Owners can drive all day, charging for 30-40 minutes at Superchargers, and then stop at night to stay and charge at a Select Registry property with a Tesla High Power Wall Connector (this charger adds 58 miles of range per hour, topping off Model S’s full 265 miles of range in just a few hours.)
