What is Christmas without eggs, cream and booze? It's not fun, that's what. The Historic Arkansas Museum knows that and tonight hosts the 11th annual Nog-off competition between lots of folks who think they nog best. 
HAM Director Bill Worthen puts his ancestral Nicholas Peay recipe up against the punchbowl secrets of Cache Restaurant, Loblolly Creamery,  John Selig and Lea Elenzweig, Stone's Throw Brewing, Heritage Grille, One Eleven at the Capital Hotel and Rock City Eats.

Who will win the prize for best noggin'? It's up to you, and while you are there at the HAM, check out the new exhibit of larger-than-life

  • A miscellany of art: Aug. 10-16

    We don't get to post all the jpegs of artwork on exhibit that come into the office, but they have more allure and tell you more about the work than what I can write about them. Hence this slideshow of work from shows opening tonight (Aug. 10) for 2nd Friday Art Night, 5-8 p.m. (see the To Do list for more information), and other openings and shows this weekend and in the days ahead.
