Food Feedback Friday: loud music, liquor tax, and Lulav

At our last Food Feedback Friday, we had a nice little discussion on restaurant music choices and some of the regulations therein. Much of this centered around complaints towards Cache and their "abominable" music choice. Steve reports they're playing "basically pop songs set to a house DJ beat and turned up just a little too high." Then Poison Apple weighed in with this: "I don't know who makes music selections there at Cache and (I) have no clue what type of mood they were trying to create, but it was literally the worst music I have ever heard in a restaurant." Later, Amy Kelley Bell (of South on Main) explains, "As for Cache's music - the only defense I could give them is that restaurants (legally) are required to play music through a service like Pandora-DMX. We can't just play our own iPods, or even use Spotify, because there are laws that require royalty fees are paid to artists if music is played in a commercial setting." It was an interesting conversation, you can go back and read it here.

There was some talk about liquor laws, and Big Fun shared this frustration with us: "My complaint about Lulav — and others do it too — is that they put the 30-plus-percent liquor tax on as a tax and don't include it as part of the price of the drink, which I think is deceptive." 

However, it was refreshing to hear a good report coming from AshAhrens on the reincarnation of Lulav. She says, "We chose to share a Blue Point crab cake. I'm not kidding when I report that it may be the best crab cake in the city (not IN THE WORLD but in Little Rock)."

Lots more from last week here. But now, lets hear what you've got for us this week.

  • The Kraft Mac & Cheese Food Hack

    Recently, we held another food hack competition, taking another childhood classic, Kraft Mac & Cheese, and tried to turn it on its head, creating something entirely new and unique. Again, the results were pretty awesome. The rules were simple: Use a whole box of mac and cheese, both noodles and cheese powder, and turn it into any sinister monstrosity imaginable. We had a vote via the Eat Arkansas Facebook page to crown a winner. Here's what was submitted:
