Governor's Culinary Challenge is ready to seat you

Little Rock's top chefs — no exaggeration — will provide gourmet nosh, mixologists will serve a signature cocktail and Dr. Danny Fletcher will provide a jazzy background to the Governor's Culinary Challenge on Monday at the Capital Hotel.

So who is cooking? Joel Antunes, the Capital Hotel chef. Matt Bell of South on Main. Stephen Burrow of 42. Donnie Ferneau of the late, great Ferneau's Restaurant. Brian Deloney of Maddie's Place. Dan Capello of Chenal Country Club. The Governor's Mansion Culinary Team: Patrick Herron, Tyler Steelman and Hays Buttry. Lee Richardson, the former chef at the Capital and now with the Packet House. (See, I wasn't kidding.) The mixologists: David Burnette of South on Main and Lee Edwards of YR Concepts. Salut!

Besides the great food and innovative cocktails, there's another reason to head over to the Capital Hotel mezzanine at 6:30 p.m. Monday: One hundred percent of your $100 ticket goes to fund scholarships at the THEA Foundation. These scholarships provide thousands of dollars to Arkansas high school seniors in recognition of their prodigious talent in creative writing, visual art, fashion design, slam poetry and the performing arts.

You can't beat it: Great food, great drink, a swank setting and all to give Arkansas's emerging talent recognition and a financial leg up. Purchase your tickets here. Now.
