Expect virtual galas, movies and a whole lot of ice cream.

 

Thursday, Feb. 4

S’mores Extravaganza Final Night at Flyway Brewing // How sweet it is. The Argenta brewery has been serving up three weeks of s'mores and paired beers, and now it's time to go out with a bang. Join in around fire pits in the parking lot with a whole mess of Mounds bar s'mores from 3-9 p.m. (Don't worry, you can also get a s'mores kit to-go.) Learn more here. 

First Thursday Shop & Sip in Hillcrest // It’s the first Thursday of the month, y'all. And while that traditionally means later hours and live music to get your neighborhood shop 'n' sip on, it means something more exciting this week: the launch of the Historic Hillcrest Entertainment District. Now you can soak up the Kavanaugh vibes with an adult beverage in hand from one of your favorite Hillcrest watering holes. The fun starts at 4 p.m. Learn more here.

Friday, Feb. 5

"The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies" Virtual BingoFlix // Before you ask, yes, that's really the name of the movie. We're guessing filmmakers didn't expect these movies to be this laughable, but here we are. The BingoFlix series offers prizes to viewers who can fill up their bingo cards with hilariously awful cliches. The recent lineup is all about musicals, and this week's 1964 flick bills itself as "the world's first monster musical." You've been warned. Showtime is 7 p.m. Learn more here.

  

Saturday, Feb. 6

National Ice Cream for Breakfast Day with Loblolly Creamery // Fact: This holiday is a real thing and is celebrated on the first Saturday of February. Fact: You can eat your weight in cereal milk-flavored ice cream, orange juice floats and cinnamon roll sundaes. Fact: We may die of excitement, or maybe sugar overload, whichever gets us first. Get your fill to-go at the scoop shop in SoMa, the Loblolly truck at the White Water Tavern Farmers Market or a take-home kit. Learn more here.

Woman of the Year Virtual Gala // The state’s oldest domestic violence shelter Women & Children First celebrates its signature fundraiser virtually this year by honoring First Lady Susan Hutchinson. The evening includes special tributes, WCF's first-ever online auction and more. Festivities begin at 6 p.m. Learn more here.

Super Bowl in Little Rock // Ok, we know what your Sunday plans are. But just because you're not packed around a TV or bar with a dozen of your closest friends doesn't mean you can't enjoy a good menu. Head to our Instagram for a list of some of our favorite local Super Bowl specials.
