To-do: Thursday 7/30

I hope you’re in decision-making mode, Fayetteville, because tonight’s offerings are abundant. And by “abundant” I mean holy-giant-sandwich-there’s-tons-to-do-tonight.

By my count, there are 14 live music ops and a handful of other events to choose from. You’re gonna need a spreadsheet to plan your evening. I hope you guys are good with Excel.

You’ve got until 5pm to donate some blood in the Walton Arts Center parking lot. Give up your blood. If you wanna.

After that, there’s a meeting in the Walker Community Room of the Fayetteville Public Library at 6:30pm where Steve Luoni, director of the University of Arkansas’s Community Design Center, will discuss how a light rail system from Fayetteville to Bentonville to XNA Regional Airport could promote development in the area. They’ll be giving out free copies of the book “Visioning Rail Transit in Northwest Arkansas.”

From there, you’re on your own. You could swing by Railhead Saloon for East of Zion or stop in at 21st Amendment for Randall Shreve.

Or you could check out Opal Fly at Smoke & Barrel, Earth Society at George’s or Sweet Can Circus at Walton Arts Center.
