Collins to work toward increasing visitation to Arkansas by groups and promoting the state's appeal
Diversion has opened at 2611 Kavanaugh Blvd. in the space formerly occupied by Lemon creperie. Wine, martinis and tapas are the specialties, according to co-owner Joe St. Ana (Jay Patel is the other partner), who also owns Crush Wine Bar. Every Monday, St. Ana says he'll host liquor tastings. Diversion is open 5 p.m. until close Monday through Saturday.
St. Ana also says he's looking to move Crush to North Little Rock in the New Year, but couldn't yet reveal the details.
The Station Grocery and Deli, which opened in February as a local foods-oriented grocery and sandwich shop, closed its doors last Saturday. Owners Casey Pierce and Holly Ingebo will continue to take catering requests and box lunch orders via firstname.lastname@example.org or 442-8308.
