Sock monkeys are the subject of Terri Popoksy's art at Ketz Gallery. See it and tour other Argenta galleries Friday from 5 to 8 p.m. for downtown North Little Rock's third Friday Artwalk tomorrow night. Greg Thompson Fine Art will be showing works by J.O. Buckley and smaller, inexpensive artworks; Argenta Bead Co. will be open, Doug Norton will be painting at Starving Artist Cafe and artists that normally sell from open air booths will be cozy inside 307 Main St. for “A Gathering of Artists.”
Tomas Bohm, the owner of Czech and German eatery The Pantry in West Little Rock and The Pantry Crest in Hillcrest, has settled on a name for his new venture in the old Hillcrest Artisan Meats spot: District Fare. The name “suits the Hillcrest location," Bohm said. And besides, he added, "everything else is called Hillcrest” in the neighborhood.
Sen. Tom Cotton, cordial to a fault, appeared before a capacity crowd at the 2,200 seat Pat Walker Performing Arts Center at Springdale High tonight to a mixed chorus of clapping and boos. Other than polite applause when he introduced his mom and dad and a still moment as he led the crowd in a recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance — his night didn't get much better from there.
