To-do: Tuesday 11/10

It’s days like today that make me wish our windows could be opened. Partially because of the smell that seeps through the walls of the reptile museum next door but mostly because of the incredible weather Fayetteville is experiencing right now. Wow.

So what’s going on tonight? It’s another light-on-the-music night but as always, there are still things to do.

At 4:00 pm in Kimpel Hall, Dr. Jennifer Hoyer will give a lecture entitled “99 Red Balloons and the Youth of America,” which examines how the only four West German pop songs to make it onto American charts were all about the conflict between East and West in the Cold War.

At 6:00 pm, the 4th annual Empty Bowls NWA benefit to support Life Source of Fayetteville takes place at Nibbles Academy of Cooking. Empty Bowls is where potters and other artists make bowls and then hold a simple soup dinner to raise money for feeding the hungry. Each person who makes a donation of at least $25 receives a gourmet soup dinner to live music and gets to pick out a bowl to take home as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world.

Also (as Infidel noted), the final day of the City of Fayetteville Kickball tournament at Walker Park begins at 6:00 pm.

What else is there? A recital at Stella Boyle Smith Concert Hall, a dedication ceremony at Ozark Military Museum, a marching band “Spectacular” at Barnhill Arena, jazz at Scarpino’s and a Connect Four tournament at Smoke & Barrel Tavern.
