Doe's porterhouse...beef at its best

I imagine there’s many facets of the Doe’s experience that could be considered essential dining for the first-timer, but in my opinion the crown jewel of Doe’s is the 3-lb porterhouse. If you have not eaten this supernal slab of beef, make this a priority in your life...ignore work, family, schooling and all other tedious and less important things until this steak is in your mouth.

Prepare yourself...Potbelly is coming

Arkansas has whole host of lackluster chain sandwich shops. But there’s one restaurant that, in my opinion, shines far brighter than the rest which doesn’t even exist in Arkansas. But all that is about to change...for within a few months, Potbelly Sandwich Shop will be opening in Little Rock.

Stage Dives and Skeleton Heads: Diarrhea Planet with Mad Nomad live at Stickyz

“It’s quiet in here. Really quiet.” This declaration from the frontman of local favorites (and this year's Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase victors) Mad Nomad last night at Stickyz was, as I heard it, a gauntlet thrown, a provocation, an incitement to the twenty or so assembled to leave the cozy confines of their votive-lit tables and come forth to get visceral — to shimmy, sweat or at the very least stand in front of stage. There was a hopeful pause. Alas, instead of some reassuring hollering or an obliging congregation of receptive fans who just needed to gulp down a few more before getting loose, there was a silence that one could stretch out and nap in. It was cringe-inducing.

A Q&A with Brian Walter, director of 'Stay More: The World of Donald Harington'

Donald Harington, the late Arkansas novelist labeled an "Ozark Surrealist" by the New York Times, was born in Little Rock in 1935 and would go on to teach art history at the University of Arkansas for 22 years. When he died in 2009, he left behind a series of deeply idiosyncratic novels set in a fictional Arkansas town called Stay More, which, as William Grimes noted in his obituary for the Times, "drew the inevitable comparisons to William Faulkner’s Yoknapatawpha County." Grimes also quotes from an interview with the poet Fred Chappell: "Don Harington is not an underappreciated novelist. He is an undiscovered continent."
