The Empress of Little Rock is excited to be a participant in December’s 2nd Friday Art Night with the 10th Ever Nog-off, a friendly competition for the best eggnog in town! Join us at the Historic Arkansas Museum on December 12 from 5 – 8 pm and enjoy Live music, the opening of two new exhibits, and (of course) lots and lots of eggnog!
The Noggers (to date): Cache Restaurant, Capital Hotel Bar and Grill, Copper Grill, Loblolly Creamery, The Empress, Bridget Fennell Farris; John Selig, and Stone’s Throw Brewery. There will also be celebrity tasters present.
We can’t wait for this culinary celebration of a favorite holiday drink, and friendly competition for the best eggnog in town. Three awards will be given with the prize being bragging rights: The People’s Choice (by popular vote), The Taster’s Choice (awarded by celebrity tasters) and new last year, The Not Your Great, Great, Great Grandfather’s Eggnog award for the best unconventional entry. This award alludes to past winner, Nicholas Peay’s Eggnog, a traditional eggnog which actually is Museum Director Bill Worthen’s great, great, great grandfather’s eggnog recipe.
Book your room at the Empress and get a head start on the festivities by tasting some of our eggnog in front of a roaring fire in the Holiday bedecked parlor! Call now for the best choice of rooms, or check us out online at www.theempress.com
