So you want to throw a dinner? 

We went to Catering to You, the winner and regular high finisher in the best caterer category, to come up with a fine dinner where you leave the cooking to someone else.

The bottom line? Billie Rutherford, who runs the 23-year-old business, gave us by way of illustration a 92-person dinner Catereing to You threw recently. Field greens salad with basil vinaigrette, grilled pork tenderloin with raspberry salsa, nutted rice, rolls, cheese cake with a chocolate-dipped strawberry. Price: $52 each, prepared, served and cleaned up. Tax adds another 9.5 percent to that, for a total of almost $57 per head, including, well, water. Other beverages would be extra. And there might be a charge for a facility, unless your home can accommodate a crowd.

You also can throw your own dinner with gourmet to-go, gift baskets, cakes and gifts from the company’s shop at 8121 Cantrell Road.

  • 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.
