Speaking of Egg Nog, Historic Arkansas Museum's eighth annual Nog-off is Friday from 5 till 8 p.m. The event is free, but nog samplers must show I.D. Capital Hotel bartender David Burnette, will be present, to defend his two-year strong title. Other competitors include Copper Grill, Le Pops, Loblolly Creamery, museum supporter Bridget Farris, Argenta Arts Foundation marketing manager Drue Patton and Historic Arkansas Museum director Bill Worthen. Worthen's recipe is an 185-year-old family secret, passed down for generations.

Winners of both People's Choice and Taster's Choice will be announced the following Monday. Kat Robinson, Phil Brandon of Rock Town Distillery and P. Allen Smith will serve as celebrity tasters.

The Little Rock Nog Off is in the current issue of Food Network Magazine, and David Burnette's award-winning recipe is also featured by Southern Living.

Their record, on the cult favorite MY records label based in Little Rock, was released in early 1967. Their songs, including the atmospheric and heavy “Things Found Here” along with the psychedelic tinged “Take It All” are obscure even by garage rock standards. They were not featured on the 1999 Butler Center MY records compilation and their story has not been told before
