Feast, Football and Festivities in Argenta

Do you want another year of sitting at your great aunt's house, dying because it's 105 degrees inside, waiting on questionable food to be served, talking to relatives you barely know? I mean, we love Aunt Mabel, but there has to be more to the holiday, and wouldn't it be nice to not worry about putting on your fat pants! 



Well, if you want to break out of those "OMG it's Thanksgiving" traditions, Argenta has something to spice up your life! 


Forget cooking! Let someone serve you! There are many options to bump up your Thanksgiving feast in Argenta. Check out the Thanksgiving Feast at Riverfront Steakhouse. Enjoy the brunch buffet from 11:00 - 2:00 and feast on all the yummy Thanksgiving traditions and more! Hurry and make your reservation; spaces will go fast! If something a bit more laid back is your vibe, check out the annual FREE turkey dinner at the Parlor Tattoo from 12:00 - 4:00! Is dinner more your jam? Check out the Thanksgiving Potluck at Four Quarter Bar. This is a potluck style gathering, so bring your leftovers, favorite dish, or Grandma's Pecan Pie to share. Four Quarter Bar will be cooking their famous smoked brisket to put on the table!! FREE for all to attend. They will be open from 6 pm to 2 am. So maybe put on those comfy pants and save room for some tasty libations!


Now that you are totally full of yummy food without all the drama, you can go home and take a nap and plan the rest of your weekend, because Thanksgiving is a multi-day event, right? 

Burn off those Thanksgiving day calories by cheering on the Arkansas Razorbacks as they play Missouri at War Memorial Stadium. Rock Region Metro will have shuttles going to the game from the Little Rock Chamber. Maybe you want something a bit more "exciting," check out WWE Live Holiday Tour at Simmons First Arena, where you for sure can enjoy a smackdown! Round out the evening at The Joint Comedy Theater & Coffeehouse with the opening night of the Main Thing's "A Fertle Holiday." This original two-act comedy tells the story of the Fertle Family's trouble-ridden reunion in the tiny town of Dumpster, Arkansas, as they attempt to entertain their wealthy relatives from San Diego. That is sure to be some family drama-comedy! And no, there is not a real Dumpster, Arkansas, I looked. :)


Now you are ready for one of Argenta's most magical events of the year, Northern Lights Festival. On Saturday from 5:30 - 9:30 and the grand opening of the beautiful Argenta Plaza. This FREE event includes tree lighting, photos with Santa, music, shopping, fireworks, and more. Enjoy this merry and bright event for the whole family!



Sunday is not the day of rest in Argenta, its time to get your parade vibe on! Come out at 2:00 pm for the NLR Sertoma Christmas Parade on Main Street. The "Candy Cane and Gingerbread" themed parade will have a Santa and tons of fun things for the family. 


With all these fantastic things to do right here in Argenta, why would you want to go anywhere else? Come on down to the neighborhood and get your Argenta Holiday Vibe on! 


PS We apologize if you have an Aunt Mabel. We are sure she is lovely and not like the character in our story! Cheers!


Happy Holidays ~
