Best of Arkansas 2015 

magnum-2.jpg

To prove that Arkansas's variety of exemplary places, people and things is inexhaustible, the Arkansas Times once again presents the Best of Arkansas. This year's issue includes, as ever, a list of our readers' choices in categories ranging from lingerie to liquor stores, a longer look at some of the winners and our own Editors' Picks. David Koon ponders Sen. Jason Rapert and takes a seat at Breckenridge Village — one of those huge, luxe recliners with cup holders, so comfortable you'll watch the credits until the very end. Will Stephenson interviews poet Bryan Borland about his publishing house, the award-winning Sibling Rivalry Press, whose output has won a space in the Library of Congress. Lindsey Millar delves into Hall High and headbands in a Q&A with former Razorback basketball player Bobby Portis. Leslie Newell Peacock, weary of fixing things with a bent coat hanger, visits Fuller and Son hardware for that peace that surpasses all our misunderstandings of plumbing and the like. Benjamin Hardy, wondering if it's possible for a reporter to be dapper, checks out men's clothing winner The Independent. Kaya Herron finds sweet relief with a hot stone massage at Rejuvenation spa. Also find a list of Natural State superlatives contributed by correspondents willing to share their personal bests.
