Monday To-Do: Aug. 30

It was a busy weekend in Fayetteville. So busy, in fact, you might’ve overlooked some of the most important news items while running around town in a haze of GTD.

For starters, Brenda’s Bigger Burger received a new burger mural on the west side of the building. The previous one was painted over a while back and we’ve been chomping at the bit since we saw the black outline of a brand new burger go up a couple months ago.

During the Farmers’ Market on Saturday, we popped in at Bliss Cupcake Cafe to discover “Pancake Breakfast,” a new (to us, at least) addition to their flavor arsenal. Something about maple, pound cake, icing, and wait for it… bacon. Yes, bacon. Crispy bacon bits all over the top of a maple-flavored cupcake. Mmm.

Anyone who showed up at Greenhouse Grille for the Fayetteville Roots Festival Sunday evening after 5:30 p.m. was met with an empty parking lot. That’s because a water main broke and out from the ground came the Fayetteville Geyser as it was later referred to. The festival was quickly moved to George’s Majestic Lounge and the roots music continued seemingly unbothered.

All that without a single football game in town. Not for long, though. The Hogs host Tennessee Tech at 6 p.m. Saturday.

Conveniently listed below are a few choices for fun tonight including a screening of Citizen Architect: Samuel Mockbee and the Spirit of the Rural Studio at 5:30 p.m. in Giffels Auditorium, inside Old Main.
