Tuesday To-do: Feb. 16

For anyone not planning on sitting around getting fat on pizza and burgers all night, we’ve worked up a list of to-do items about a mile long (give or take a few pixels).

TheatreSquared is previewing a few excerpts from the upcoming production of Underneath the Lintel at the Fayetteville Public Library at 6:30 p.m. in the Walker Community Room.

If you’re looking for some traditional Mardi Gras action, we’d suggest heading out to Dickson Street for the Fat Tuesday parade. It all starts at 8 p.m. at Jose’s with the crowning of the “Royalty of the Demented Krewe.” Eventually, a parade will break out with the Billy Zydeco Band and end up at Zooloos at around 10 p.m. I once saw a boob at one of these things…right before it got hauled off to jail.

If traditional isn’t your thang (and if there are any tickets left), RJD2 is at George’s tonight along with a handful of other musicians. If this is on your radar, better go ahead and call in sick for tomorrow.

If you haven’t been to one of Bryan and Bernice’s Hembree House shows yet, there’s a Texas Songwriters in the Round event tonight. Better sign up quick, though.

If you’re an Andy Frasco fan, you’ve got two chances to see him tonight. He’s playing with Tim Grace early at Rogue and then he’ll be over at Smoke & Barrel at 10:30 p.m.

There’s plenty more listed below. Ready, set, choose:
