If there's one thing the Times knows about our readers, it's that they love some live music. If there's another thing the Times knows about our readers, it's that they love some food and drink. So it would follow that Times readers would really love a chartered bus to an excellent music festival, with live music and drinks en route to said music festival and a stop for some delicious nosh on the way, right?

Well it just so happens that this fine publication is offering not one, but two chartered bus trips to excellent music festivals with live music and drinks en route and a stopover for a tasty meal. Not only that, but these bus trips are on consecutive days, Oct. 5 and 6, to be exact.

At 3 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 5, the Times wagon train will depart for Jonesboro for the second annual Johnny Cash Music Festival, featuring The Civil Wars, Dierks Bentley, Rosanne Cash and Willie Nelson. Last year's trip was a blast. There were good times, good tunes and beer, wine and other libations flowing the whole way.

The very next morning at 10 a.m., another bus will head over to Helena for the King Biscuit Blues Festival, featuring headliner Bonnie Raitt, plus The Cate Brothers, The James Cotton Band and a multitude of others. There'll be a stopover for lunch at Craig's Barbecue in De Valls Bluff, as well as on-board drinks and music.

Both buses will return after the concerts, both are $99 and include tickets, food and drinks en route. To buy tickets, call 501-375-2985 or mail a check or money order payable to Arkansas Times to:

Arkansas Times Cash Bus (or Arkansas Times Blues Bus)
Box 34010
Little Rock, AR 72203
