Saturday: Main Street Food Truck Festival

The Main Street Food Truck Festival is Saturday.
  • The Main Street Food Truck Festival is Saturday.

This Saturday, starting at 11 a.m., Main Street will morph into a food truck-lovers paradise as the Main Street Food Truck Festival gets rolling. From Third Street to Seventh Street, it'll be jam-packed with games, contests, eats, treats, tunes, brews and more.

Now, I know what you might be thinking: Our Beloved Hogs take on the Texas A&M Aggies at the Palace in Dallas Saturday, with a kickoff scheduled for 11 a.m. Well the folks at the Downtown Little Rock Partnership will have two 55-inch TVs set up so folks can watch the game.

The Rep is hosting a beer garden and a costume sale from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., so if you've always wanted to own a piece of Rep history, here's your chance. Maybe they'll have a coat of many colors from the production of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat." With Halloween approaching, this is perfectly timed. There will be arts and crafts vendors set up between Fifth and Sixth streets.

Participating vendors include: Banana Leaf, Big Poppa’s Mobile, Christians Take-Out Too, Dream Eats Café Mobile Food, Green Cuisine, Grills on Wheels, Hot Dog Mike, Kristina’s Hawaiian Ice, King Blvd., Kwik Dawg Stop, Le Pops, Lewis & Edna’s Mobile, Loncheria Mexicana Alicia, Papa’s Burgers & Dogs, Peace Hog Mobile Café, Pierre’s Gourmet Pizza, Taqueria Jalisco San Juan and Wishbone’s.

There will be performances from Crooked Roots, Monkhouse, Fire & Brimstone, The Justin Bank Band, DJ Dylan, the Porter's Jazz Café house band and Underclaire.

Everything will wrap up around 7 p.m., but if you're still in the mood for good times, you can stick around for a performance of "Ring of Fire" at The Rep.

    We ended up adopting Fred due to his incorrigible stubbornness. Originally bred to track game, basset hounds can be amazingly persistent. It sometimes appears that when their noses are working, their hearing shuts down.

    But little oversight. Is a violation not a violation if a prosecutor says, 'I didn't mean to'?

    Private clubs apparently have won their battle against earlier closing hours, based on a "compromise" revealed at the City Board meeting last night.
  • The Kochs, Tom Cotton and their dislike of helping farmers

    The Koch political lobby is trying mightily to pretend it supports American farmers and that Tom Cotton's vote against the farm bill isn't a measure of farm support. A new report from a Democratic organization blows that dishonest messaging out of the water.

    When Darla talks about the tree, she calls it "he" sometimes, blurring the seam between the tree and the memory of her son.
