What's cooking, March 26 

Brown Sugar Bakeshop has opened in the River Market. The dessert bakery's menu offers an array of cupcakes, cakes (by the slice or whole), brownies, cookies and, for the decadent, “icing shooters” (1.5 ounces of your favorite frosting). It's the first storefront for sisters April and Kristi Williams, who'd previously operated April's Cakes, a catering business.

A baking schedule is available at www.brownsugarbakeshop.com. The bakery is open Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. The phone number is 372-4009.


Bill Valentine's Ballpark Restaurant, the fine Italian restaurant in the Arkansas Travelers' Dickey-Stephens Park, the labor of love of now-retired Traveler GM Bill Valentine, will close Sunday, March 29.

The restaurant will reopen in time for Travs opening day, on April 9, as Ump's Pub & Grill, an upscale sports pub and restaurant. The name, according to a Travs' news release, is meant to pay tribute to Valentine, a longtime MLB umpire.


Gadwall's Grill West will close on Friday. A representative from the restaurant cited the economy and increased competition. The original Gadwall's in North Little Rock remains open.
