Bark Bar

 1201 S Spring St

 Thurs, April 13, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.

Back by popular demand: we're loading up our dogs and headed to Bark Bar! Don't worry if you don't have a dog or just not able to bring your dog with you - we'll have extra dogs on hand from the Little Rock Animal Village that will be available for adoption.


We'll cover the entry fee for dogs (and it's always free for humans), just tell them you're with Create Little Rock.


Dogs in attendance must be up-to-date on rabies, parvo, and distemper. Dogs must be at least 4 months old and dogs over 1 year old must be spayed or neutered. To speed up the entry process, you can fill out their form for dog entry HERE in advance. (You can also do it at the door.)

Monthly Happy Hour

The Hillcrest Fountain

2809 Kavanaugh Blvd

Thurs, April 27, 5:30 - 7:30 pm

It's been a long time since we've had a Happy Hour at one of the best bars in town - The Hillcrest Fountain! If you haven't been to there in a few years, then you're sure to be impressed with all the work they did while shut down for COVID, including the new back room and patio. They also went smoke-free upon reopening after COVID, so you can now breathe easy! We'll have the back bar and patio all to ourselves for this one.
