BRANDON'S VODKA & GIN PREMIERE
6 p.m., Arkansas Arts Center. $30 adv., $40 d.o.e.

I bet Alexander Millar isn't too happy with his state right now. The turn-of-the-century Methodist minister and former Hendrix College president was the state's leading advocate for prohibition and organizer of the Anti-Saloon League during his fun-hating time as Arkansas's hall monitor. We can credit Phil Brandon and his Rock Town Distillery for Dr. Millar's latest post-mortem disappointment (perhaps somewhere near having a great-great-grandson who writes about debauchery for a living). Brandon has opened the state's first legal distillery, specializing in small-batch, premium spirits forged from Arkansas water and grains. And after months of maturing in the distillery's 250-gallon copper still, they're ready to debut the latest addition to Little Rock's alcoholic offerings with an open bar of the small-batch, hand-labeled liquors at the Arkansas Arts Center. The entry fee covers hors d'ouevres, too.
