Ouzo Cake, a new menu item at the Greek Food Fest

International Greek Food Festival

This year, festival visitors can pause in front of an elaborate new altar icon in the church's Annunciation room: a 700,000-piece glass mosaic of Christ situated at the Annunciation's altar, handmade by a studio in Italy and designed especially for the space. Or, just seek your divinity at one of the food vendor spots and sample some of the fest's best grub.

Patrick McFarlin, "Picture It Painted — Fifty Years of McFarlin Oil"

Patrick McFarlin is an expat Arkansas artist whose travels took him west to New Mexico and California and whose talents took him farther, into pop sculpture; “manic- expressionist” painting; landscape; sometimes naive, sometimes neo-Munchean portraiture; surreal narrative. He’s back in Arkansas temporarily with a “lifetime of work,” as he puts it.

two sphinxes standing guard from The Neverending Story

"The Neverending Story"

Is “The Neverending Story” an allegory on how internalized fear cripples imagination? A lesson about action leading to self-worth? A cautionary tale against book thievery? Either way, our underdog, Bastian, enters a dangerous world through a story that becomes indiscernible from real life.

Opera in the Rock: 'Madama Butterfly'

Puccini’s title role is demanding enough to be considered a rite of passage for singers, and Mondanaro is beautifully equipped for it, with a leviathan of a dramatic soprano voice and a technique that draws upon the Italian Swedish singing school, the same school of thought that gave us Birgit Nilsson and Kirsten Flagstad.

Tav Falco and The Unapproachable Panther Burns, Bonnie Montgomery

Falco once told Robert Gordon that when it came to music, “It was the feeling and aesthetic that mattered, more than musicianship or virtuosity." Decades later, that still seems to be Falco's operating principle.

Rodney Block

Cajun's, where singles have been mingling with the aid of Play-De-Dohs for decades, is going out with a bang with crowd favorite musicians performing in the final days.
