A few months ago at South by Southwest, a campaign called "Why Austin" highlighted all of the different reasons everyone should move to Austin. As compelled as I am to return to my home state, we started our own campaign on Twitter here in LR (informally, of course) and we call it "Why Little Rock". Movies in the Park is such an event that deserves the #whylittlerock hashtag.
Every Wednesday night in Little Rock, hundreds flock to the River Market to enjoy a different movie on the lawn. Sometimes family movies, sometimes something for the adults (they caught a lot of flack for showing Hangover, but I thought that was brilliant!). People bring chairs and blankets and spread out all over with picnic baskets to enjoy a little fabulous summer weather. This week, it was Transformers.
What does one wear to such an event? Well considering I would be sitting on the ground, I picked shorts, but I decided to make a faux romper look by going monochromatic. I've done this before, and it's kind of fun to make two pieces look like one. I know my dog looks like she's trying to escape. She was really excited.
So you bring some wine and you bring your dog and you just enjoy life. It definitely feels like a #whylittlerock moment. Oh, and don't forget your grown up lunchable. Zoey spent most of her evening trying to snatch the cheese.
My dog sitting like she thinks she's a person. Such a funny dog.
