Monthly CLR Happy Hour
Wednesday, February 20th, 5 : 30-7:30pm
White Water Tavern - 2500 W. 7th St, Little Rock

This will be a CLR first, although it's been on the list to have a happy hour here for a while.  White Water Tavern is a legendary dive bar and music venue with a rich history.  Tucked away between I-630 and the Capitol View/Stifft Station neighborhood, White Water has served as the home for many up-and-coming bands stopping through Little Rock on tour, and a nostalgic homecoming for many of those same bands after hitting it big.  Some of them have even referenced the place in their song lyrics.  It's a stage that every local band longs to make it to.  And while there won't be any live music during our happy hour, you can bet we'll find some good tunes on the jukebox.  Mark your calendar - this is gonna be a fun one.

Serve the Rock

Create Little Rock Presents:
Serve the Rock
Thursday, March 8th, 5-7pm
Dickey-Stephens Park

Serve the Rock is Create Little Rock's annual event providing CLR members and other professionals the opportunity get engaged in the community.   

Area nonprofits set up booths, and attendees can wander from booth to booth learning about the nonprofits and their various missions and needs. Think of it as a job fair for volunteerism, along with beer, wine, and food included in the $10 ticket price. ( CLR members who register below get in free.)  It's a great way to get plugged in and make a difference!  Last year we had 50 nonprofits participating and over 400 attendees!

CLR members can  REGISTER HERE for free using the promo code CLR19.

Volunteers Needed!

Putting on Serve the Rock takes a lot of effort, and having CLR members volunteer to serve beer/wine and help with setup and take-down is critical!
We'll need help in 3 shifts: 
Setup and directing the nonprofits to their designate spots.
Any final setup needs and serving beer/wine, taking tickets, checking IDs, etc.  
An hour of those same needs as the 4:30 shift then a half hour of helping with the take-down. 
CLICK HERE  to sign up for a shift. 

If you sign up for a shift, it is not necessary to also register for the event. 
If you have questions, email Buckley O'Mell at bomell@littlerockchamber.com.
