Hi, friends. 

Our goal at Soirée has always been to bring you the best of this city, from nonprofit fundraisers to weekend festivals. We've always encouraged you to get out and experience Little Rock, to explore its shining stars and its hidden gems.

And even though our world looks very different at the moment, our goal is still the same, with a hearty dose of social distance, and to bring it to you with local heart shining through.

So as we all do our part and stay home to spare ourselves and our neighbors — seriously, stay home — we put together this guide to help you (and us) through it.

If you have a story or coverage suggestion, share it with us at info@littlerocksoiree. Have updates to any of the lists we've linked below? Let us know.

We're still here. We're still putting out content on our site, in our enewsletter and on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Reach out, tag us, use #heysoiree and let us know you're still there, too. 

And when the soirées return, we'll be there. Stay connected, friends.
