What's cooking, Aug. 23 

Vieux Carre, the Hillcrest Bistro adjoined with the Afterthought, is now offering off-site catering. Chef David Bennett says he's already picked up a number of gigs, from office lunches to a rehearsal dinner for a 100-plus, just by word of mouth. Bennett says anything is up for grabs, including a custom menu. Arrangements can be made at 663-1196.

Last week, a Planet Smoothie franchise opened on 4621 JFK Blvd. in North Little Rock. The smoothie franchise already had operations on 102A Markham Park Drive and 6708 Kenwood in Little Rock.

The first New York, NY Fresh Deli franchise to come to Arkansas has opened at 302 N. Shackleford. The menu, as you'd expect, offers all types of sandwiches, including stand-bys like pastrami and Swiss, and something called “The Bronx Bomber,” that we'll surely be sampling — corned beef, pastrami and provolone on an Italian roll. The deli is open from 10:30 a.m. until 9 p.m. daily.

  • Take yourself there: Mavis Staples coming to LR for Central High performance

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
