A la Carte Kickoff // How's your appetite? The ACH Auxiliary’s annual A la Carte fundraiser is going the social distanced route this year. Instead of a huge tasting event, a ticket gets you discounts and specials at restaurants all over town, including a free dessert from Ciao Baci and 15% off dumplings from Three Fold. Thursday is day one, but A la Carte lasts through April 11, so you've got plenty of time to fuel up. Learn more here. 

Free Children's Concert with the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra // Well, this is adorable. The ASO is bringing Prokofiev's "Peter and the Wolf" to virtual audiences of all ages, followed by violinist Samuel Garcia performing Vivaldi's "Spring" with the orchestra. Showtime is 10 a.m. 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 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.
