What's Cooking, Oct. 25 

A new restaurant, River Rock Grill, has opened at the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute on Petit Jean Mountain near Morrilton. Named for an adjacent 310-foot water feature meant to represent how the Arkansas and Petit Jean Rivers flow around Petit Jean Mountain, the grill is open Tuesday through Saturday, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. The menu includes appetizers, soups, salads, sandwiches, entrees, a dessert of the day and blended coffee drinks. The grill will expand its menu in May 2008.

With one location already on Chenal Parkway, Java Roasting Cafe has opened a second location in Little Rock in the Breckenridge Village shopping complex. The cafe features a menu of breakfast items, paninis, soups, wraps, salads, various baked goods, and, of course, assorted coffees and teas. The restaurant, which opened a week ago, includes indoor and outdoor seating.

Boscos Brewing Company won a gold medal at the Great American Beer Festival, held two weeks ago in Denver. The brewery won the prize for its German-style Wheat Ale, Boscos Hefeweizen.

    A fellow posted an old newspaper article on his blog about a Mike Huckabee speech to a religious group in 1998. A friend faxed the article to me, then called to ask if I’d yet read it, which I had.

  • Industrial hemp pilot program coming soon to Arkansas

    One of the booths at this week's Ark-La-Tex Medical Cannabis Expo was hosted by the Arkansas Hemp Association, a trade group founded to promote and expand non-intoxicating industrial hemp as an agricultural crop in the state. AHA Vice President Jeremy Fisher said the first licenses to grow experimental plots of hemp in the state should be issued by the Arkansas State Plant Board next spring.
  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
