An emphasis on some of the best moments of the June issue, behind-the-scenes secrets and more.


Standout Quote

“OK, we actually bought a bus. Now what?”

– Natalie Huggins, on how the mobile therapy service Chatterbus came to life


A Foodie Destination

Escaping the city for a moment, we caught up with Oaklawn Executive Chef Ken Bredeson to get a glimpse of the culinary magic going on in the kitchens. The even better news? We only covered two of Oaklawn’s 15 eateries and bars, so you have plenty to explore after reading.


Behind the Scenes

“No photo can do this pool justice. You just have to see it in person,” says Josie Burnett, Soirée’s stylist and an editorial contributor. “The Esplanade District apartments really brought the outdoor amenity game up a notch. Just past the lens’ view is a large swim-up bar, hot tub, life-size chess board and a lobby that is straight out of a movie.”


Women of Impact

With the help of our annual Women to Watch special section, June has long been our most women-centric issue each year. And while we’re thrilled to continue that tradition this month, we’re also looking forward to another similar project: the Top 100 Women of Impact in Arkansas, a special publication we’re creating in collaboration with the Women’s Foundation of Arkansas and our parent company Arkansas Business Publishing Group, set to debut in September.

Getting Outside

For this month’s sunny summer issue, we broke out of the studio and took advantage of scenic locales around the metro. Downtown Little Rock, War Memorial Stadium, poolside at The Esplanade, a colorful classroom on wheels — read on for a bit of local wanderlust.
