Weekend Fun!

So, Savvy readers, what are ya’ll up to this weekend? If you haven’t already got plans, I have some ideas to help you pass the time!

Friday night, November 4, the Little Rock Athletic Club is hosting Parent’s Night Out! Make a reservation NOW to get your kids a night away from the house. Price is $16 for Kids’ Club members, $18 for Athletic Club members and $20 for non-members. Activites include games, music, sports, pizza and more! Parent’s Night Out is from 6 p.m. – 10:30 p.m. Call 225-3601 to register!

Saturday, November 5, the Jingle Bell Jubilee holiday shopping event to benefit Chenal Valley Montessori School will take place at the school from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Chenal Valley Montessori School is located at 14929 Cantrell Road in West Little Rock. There will be vendors, photos, refreshments, a supervised childrens’ area, and a silent auction. You can even register to win a full year’s scholarship for an elementary-aged child. Admission to the Jubilee is $3. To learn more about CVMS, visit www.chenalvalleymontessori.com or call 501.868.6030.

Saturday is also the first annual Cornbread Festival in the Bernice Garden downtown, at the corners of South Main and Daisy Bates Avenue. This event, which celebrates the southern delicacy in all its glory, will take place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for children aged 6 – 12, and free for kids 5 and under. For more information, please visit www.arcornbreadfestival.com or call Liz Sanders, coordinator of the Bernice Garden, at 501.617.2511. Activities include blues, bluegrass and folk music, childrens’ activities, nonprofit booths and vendors selling new and vintage goods. 

If you haven’t made it to the theater to see Puss in Boots yet, now’s your chance! This delightful Shrek-adjacent family film tells the story of Puss in Boots before he met up with Shrek and his pals. It’s rated PG for adventure action and mild rude humor (which you should be familiar with if you’ve ever enjoyed a Shrek film!) Puss in Boots is playing at the Riverdale 10 theater on Cantrell road, at the Lakewood 8 in North Little Rock, UA Breckinridge off of Rodney Parham road, and the Rave theater off of Colonel Glenn road. See www.imdb.com for showtimes!
