Razorback fans attending the 2016 Belk Bowl found their way to The Queen City from points far and near, proving the team's support stretches well beyond the Arkansas border. Prior to the Hogs' Dec. 29 contest against the Virginia Tech Hokies, the Arkansas Alumni Association hosted a welcome reception/Razorback social at Rooftop 210 the previous night and then a game-day Hog Wild Tailgate at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Both venues are downtown.

Introductions were light.

Julia Reed is a hoot. The author, humorist and magazine/newspaper contributor says just about anything that comes to mind, whether in print or in public. It's an endearing quality, especially for a Mississippi Delta belle who loves to talk about the South and all its nomenclature.
