Sisters Amber Uptigrove and Donna Uptigrove and Fayetteville artist Sarah May Leflar are showing their work in "Found-Fired-Formed" at the Historic Arkansas Museum to the strains of the Meshugga Klezmer Band (my "Favorite") at tonight's 2nd Friday Art Night event, 5-8 p.m.

Donna U., a curator at the HAM, is showing what might be called narrative ceramics; Amber U. works in mixed media and Leflar is showing work using found objects.

In addition to the musical and performing art, there will be a mixology contest: the 7th Ever Nog-off eggnog contest. New contestants this year: Phil Brandon, spiking his brew with his new Rock Town Distillery’s Young Arkansas Bourbon, and Drue Patton of Argenta Arts Foundation with "OMnoG." Returning nogs by Mary Beth Ringgold of Copper Grill, Tracy Sterling of JAVA Roasting Express @ Wright & Chester and Bridget Farris, with her old Kentucky family recipe, will also be put to the test. The Capital Hotel Bar and Grill, an entrant last year, is sending over a new recipe with Tandra Watkins of Ashley’s. Kat Robinson of Eat Arkansas blog fame will be one of the judges, joining Lawrence Hamilton and Rex Nelson. There will be a people's choice, as always.

  • Make way for dumplings: Three Fold sets Main Street opening

    Dumpling and noodle maven Lisa Zhang said last week that her Three Fold Noodles and Dumpling Co. will open in bigger digs at 615 Main St. on Monday, Sept. 25. Three Fold will grow 1.5-fold, from 80 seats at its 215 Center St. location to 120 seats on Main and will offer something new: breakfast, featuring bao, steamed and filled buns. Residents of the AR Democrat Lofts, with which the restaurant shares the building, along with Three Fold’s many fans, should be thrilled.

  • Janet Jackson at Verizon Arena: A Review

    Her dance abilities had clearly diminished, as they naturally would over two decades. I mean, she's 50. And has a newborn. I get it, but it's like they're grasping at recreating 20 year-old Janet instead of focusing on what makes 50 year-old Janet amazing, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t terribly disappointed.
