Tuesday is a popular day for free food and drinks for legislators, courtesy of the legislatively crafted loophole to the no-wining-and-dining amendment Arkansas voters thought they had passed. Today’s offerings for lawmakers (the average voter who nominally is to be admitted to meetings of the General Assembly best not try to enter):

* Lunch, Capitol Hill building. The host is the Arkansas Pest Management Association. Hush. No jokes.

* Cocktail hour, 5:30 p.m. Trapnall Hall. Arkansas Pharmacists Association.

* More drinks, more food, 7-9 p.m. Next Level Events, the Russellville Area Chamber of Commerce and Arkansas Valley Alliance. Casino talk, anyone?
