6:30 p.m. Wildwood Park. $50.

Long about this time last year, AETN hosted a reception to offer a sneak-preview of the forthcoming season of the runaway British TV hit "Downton Abbey," which airs on PBS stations here stateside.

Well, here we are at the brink of another season of the show about the rich family at the Abbey and their problems with the help and the war and the Irish Troubles and the Spanish flu and assorted other Gilded-Age goings-on. This show is just so dadgum popular that AETN will again be offering the good people of Arkansas a chance to catch a peek at the show before it officially premieres on Jan. 5 (of course, the show premiered in the U.K. back in September).

To add to the whole atmosphere of the affair, there's gonna be a Roaring '20s theme, which will be augmented if y'all dress up in your finest post-Edwardian finery. There will be a costume contest to determine whose outfit is the Roaring '20s-iest, along with cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, a photo booth to capture you in your attire, music, dancing and, of course, the chance to gloat to all your (non-British) friends about what happens in season 4.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
