What's cooking, April 30 

The Meat Shoppe, the fine meat, barbecue and poultry institution in Gravel Ridge, is coming to Little Rock. Owner Kent Berry said that their new store in the River Market — to be called “Kent's Downtown” — should be open by mid-May in time for Riverfest in the space formerly occupied by Shaka's Smoke Lounge.

Berry said that Kent's Downtown will serve all the goodies the Meat Shoppe in Gravel Ridge is known for, including ribs, pulled pork, smoked chicken, turnip greens, baked beans and other fixin's. Like the flagship store, Berry said the Little Rock incarnation will also sell fine cuts of beef — including thick-cut and marinated steaks —  as well as chicken, pork and several varieties of sausage.

 

The Meat Shoppe will be only the latest meat-themed addition to the River Market. A small Nathan's hot dog stand opened last week.

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
