Soup Sunday
, the annual jam-packed benefit for Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families, celebrates its 36th anniversary on Sunday, Jan. 29, with the largest number of soup venders ever (more than 40 restaurants are participating), sides and desserts, and silent and live auctions.

Arkansas’s favorite TV anchor and baritone Craig O’Neill will preside over the event as emcee; featured chef will be Chris McMillan of Boulevard Bread Co. Radio personality Ugly Ed Johnson from 105.1 The Wolf will play music to slurp by.

Remember: You'll need to bring a muffin tin so you can sample several soup cups at the event, which will be held at the Statehouse Convention Center from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tickets for adults are $25 in advance, $30 after 5 p.m. Jan. 27. Tickets for ages 5 to 17 are $10; children under 5 are free. With a patron ticket ($50, $60 after Jan. 27) you get to enter the Patron room, where there will be soup and appetizers by Boulevard along with complimentary beer and wine.

Arkansas Children’s Hospital is sponsor.

  • Janet Jackson at Verizon Arena: A Review

    Her dance abilities had clearly diminished, as they naturally would over two decades. I mean, she's 50. And has a newborn. I get it, but it's like they're grasping at recreating 20 year-old Janet instead of focusing on what makes 50 year-old Janet amazing, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t terribly disappointed.
