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.

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
