There's still time today to reserve a seat at the Arkansas Times' farm-to-table dinner with chef Travis McConnell Saturday at the Historic Arkansas Museum.

Tours of the grounds start at 6 p.m. Tickets are $95 for food, drink and music. 

Menu: Lamb tartare and pickled deviled eggs; fire roasted lamb with chilies, herbs and olive oil; pumpkin and shiitake mushroom stew, Arkansas dirty brown rice; local mixed greens with carrot and buttermilk and black pepper dressing; miche rustic bread from Arkansas Fresh Bakery, and Loblolly Creamery Ice Cream. Champagne, red and white wine and Goose Island Beer will be served all evening.

Call or email Kelly Lyles at 492-3979 or kellylyles@arktimes.com to reserve a seat.

The lambs, from Times publisher Alan Leveritt's farm, were slaughtered Tuesday  and will be spit-roasted on site.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
