The Great Arkansas Beer Festival, or GARBF, will feature more than 400 beers from 150 breweries, including eight beers that were among the top 10 beers of 2017. V.I.P. tickets are $60; regular admission is $30 before June 22 and $40 at the door. Designated non-drinking drivers may get in for $10 (though why they would want to, we don’t know). There will be food for purchase at the event; tickets include all beer samples and a souvenir tasting glass. A portion of proceeds will benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Arkansas.

  • 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.
