Best of Arkansas 2013 

best_of_ark_2013.jpg

For the 18th year running, the readers of the Arkansas Times have spoken. From tattoos to toy stores, they've voted on just about every aspect of life in Central Arkansas. Besides those results, as usual, we've included our own personal picks for the best stuff in life. Like the new purse museum on South Main Street, a piquant sausage from Farm Girl Natural Foods and the temple to vinyl that is Arkansas CD and Record Exchange.

Elsewhere, Leslie Peacock explains artist Stephen Cefalo's embrace of tattooing, David Ramsey offers pro-tips for dipping your toe into Wild River Country, David Koon meditates on Savers' place in our national obsession with forever accumulating "more stuff," Rep. Warwick Sabin explains what it means to be a progressive in a reddening state in an interview with Ramsey, we get to the bottom of what makes Big Orange's fries so special and local bakers suggest what a $6,000 pie might look like in honor of former state Treasurer Martha Shoffner, who voters said was most emblematic of Worst Misuse of Taxpayer Funds this year.
