Citizens of the Week

Wednesday, April 11, 2018

The Crescent Hotel’s Jodie English Brown, left, and Fresh Italian Bistro’s chef Troy Cherry are this week’s Citizens of the Week. The two saved the evening for the Eureka Springs Rotary Club on March 29, when the Crescent Hotel lost electricity around 3 p.m. The power company advised electricity would not be restored in time for the hotel to serve drinks and dinner for Rotary’s cocktail meeting at 5 p.m., so English Brown called Cherry to move the party to Fresh. Cherry and his staff put together a menu and served cocktails and a sit-down dinner for 28 people with only two hours’ notice.
