Petit & Keet Brunch at Watercolor in the Park: If you still haven't been to the Arkansas Arts Center's newest in-house restaurant, the time is now. Run by the Keet family (the crew behind Petit & Keet, Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe and Paninis and Company), Watercolor serves up some of Petit & Keet's best brunch bites every Sunday. Think: chicken and waffles, quiche, the works. Brunch hours are 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. For more info, click here.


Sunday Evening Music Series at The Rail Yard: Oh, yes, our Sunday routine is shaping up quite nicely. The Rail Yard, the newest hot spot in East Village (aka Hanger Hill), is launching a weekly music series to help you ease back into the workweek. This Sunday you can enjoy the live sounds of Buh Jones with a seat by the fire pit, a local drink and a whole mess of Count Porkula deliciousness. It all goes down 4-7 p.m. For more info, click here.
