What's Cookin', July 1 

Phil Brandon said last week he hopes to have Rock Town Distillery, which he bills as Arkansas's first craft distillery, in production by mid-July and his 750 ML bottles of gin and vodka in stores and bars by August. Brandon's bourbon may be ready in only six to eight months — Rock Town works in small batches so aging time is shortened. Tasting tours at the factory, at 1216 E. Sixth, near Heifer International, should begin in September. Initially, including Brandon and his wife, Rock Town's staff will be four.

Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt, a national self-serve chain that bills itself as the "fastest growing frozen yogurt chain" in the U.S., is now open in the Pleasant Ridge Town Center, 11525 Cantrell Road, from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily. The phone number is 501-227-4522 and the website is www.orangeleafyogurt.com.

    Andrew Rogerson, the new chancellor at UA Little Rock, has decided to study the cost of starting a major college football team on campus (plus a marching band). Technically, it would be a revival of football, dropped more than 60 years ago when the school was a junior college.
