Man, the fall is looking better and better all the time. I told you all yesterday that tickets to our 4th Annual Craft Beer Festival were on sale, and today I’m happy to announce that you can also go ahead and pick up tickets to the 2015 Arkansas Times Whole Hog Roast. This event has always been a lot of fun, featuring teams representing local restaurants, food trucks and caterers all battling it out to see who is the king of roasted pork. Scoring a ticket to this thing means eating your fill and then some—and at last years event, there wasn’t a bad bite to be had.

“But Michael,” you ask, “What if I want to get in on the action as a competitor and not an eater?” Well, you’re in luck. We still have some spots left for teams to compete, and all you have to do is email Phyllis Britton here at the office for some details.


The Whole Hog Roast will be held November 14 at the Argenta Farmers Market Plaza in North Little Rock. The grounds will be open to ticket holders from 5 p.m.-10 p.m., with food being served from 6:30 p.m.-9 p.m.
