Clubs’ 5 a.m.- closing issue makes 2 directors detectives

Posted: July 20, 2014 at 3:55 a.m.

Nola Nysten, who has worked at Midtown Billiards for nine years, says she can’t imagine Little Rock officials changing the hours for private clubs. “This is where everybody goes. Everyone knows each other,” she said. A sign on the wall behind Nysten proclaims: “Support Little Rock’s 5 a.m. Clubs.”

As City Director Brad Cazort walked into Midtown Billiards just after 2:30 a.m. on a recent Sunday, he noticed a “Support Little Rock’s 5 a.m. Clubs” banner on the wall to his left.
