Greek grub 

GREEK FOOD FEST
11 a.m., Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church. Free.

After a quarter century slinging baklava and gyros, the Greek Food Fest has it down to a science. Don't want to stand in line? Order online from home in advance. Don't want to leave the hermetically sealed, air-conditioned bliss of your car? Drive through and order from a limited menu. Don't want to battle the parking cluster? Park at Pulaski Academy or Asbury Methodist and catch a free trolley that runs every 10 minutes. Once you figure out the best way to arrive, you're faced with a wealth of options. There's food, obviously. Falafel, gyros, hummus, souvlaki, tabbouleh and all sort of Greek pastries (including chocolate baklava). Plus, tours of the ornate Annunciation Church. An entertainment schedule that runs through the weekend, beginning at 5 p.m. on Friday, that includes just about every shade of folk dance to be found in Central Arkansas, with representatives from the Greek American Folk Dance Society sharing the stage with Middle Eastern dancers and, among others, the O'Donovan School of Irish Dance. For the kids, there are the requisite climbing walls and bounce rooms. And for those youngsters not yet indoctrinated into the delicious ways of Greek cuisine, hot dogs.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
