This Thursday, May 10th, Taste of the Rock is back at the River Market Pavilions. Average attendance is 1,000, so get there early if you don't want the pickin's to be picked over (although Mollie Merry Campbell, at the Little Rock Chamber of Commerce, assures us that they've never run out of food). For $15 in advance (get tickets here, or at the Chamber) and $20 at the gate, you'll be free to sample food and beverages from at least 33 different restaurants, caterers and distributors and vote for your favorites in the categories of Best Booth and Best Taste. The Peabody's Capriccio Grill won Best Taste four years running, only to be displaced last year by Hilton Little Rock. Capriccio hopes to regain the title, and for its part, Hilton hopes to take both awards this year. Vendors get pretty creative with their booths — expect themes, costumes, music and decorations. And sorry kids, but you gotta be 21 and up.

    Just think: If Democrats had turned out 78,000 more votes in three states in November, people could be reveling today in the prospect of impeaching and convicting President Hillary Clinton, not Donald Trump, as some Republican lawmakers had promised to try to do if she won.
