Here is a look at what is happening in Northwest Arkansas sponsored by Canada Dry Ginger Ale.

How about an evening with the Syrian culture. This is a virtual event. Once you register you will have access to Syrian recipes and video tutorials for the dish. You’ll cook a dish, and then gather over Zoom to listen to Syrian music and storytelling. All ticket revenue will go to support food insecure families in Syria. For context, today, $1 equals 3450 Syrian pounds. The event takes place on December 15 at 6:00 p.m.
