Silent Sunday is a fundraiser for the Arkansas School for the Deaf - for technology purchases.
Central Arkansas Independent Restaurant Operators serve tasting portions of their famous food.
I've attended two years (not consecutively) and rank the event as fabulous.
Tickets are $18 in advance, $20 at the door.
Wear pants with an elastic waist.  Some people bring cafeteria trays to hold the tasting portions.  It's that good.

Thanks to [ profile] heifer3  for alerting me of this year's event.
