Tuesday To-Do: Sept. 7

It’s Tuesday to most, Monday to some, and Non-Fayetteville News Day here in the to-do post.


Remember Steven Slater? He was the JetBlue flight attendant who lost his cool and became a working class hero after quitting his job in the most remarkable way imaginable. His fifteen minutes may be over after he appears in a New York court today. If convicted on felony charges of reckless endangerment, criminal mischief, and criminal trespass, he could face seven years in prison.

Ever had trouble passing your driver’s test? Regardless of how you answer that, you can’t top 69-year-old Cha Sa-soon of South Korea. She had so much trouble that once she finally got her license, Hyundai gave her a free car and put her in a commercial. Why? Because it took her 960 tries to pass. Yes, you read that right – nine hundred and sixty.

Finally, this NYT headline says about all you need to know: ‘Magic Mushrooms’ May Help Cancer Patients, Study Says.


If you missed Candy Lee‘s CD release show a couple of weeks ago, now’s your chance to make it up. She and The Sweets are playing at Sound Warehouse tonight at 6 p.m. It’s a small venue, though, so get there early.

If you can’t squeeze in, consider heading up to Mount Sequoyah for the Music on the Mountain series. The monthly, first-Tuesday event is free and begins at 7 p.m. This month, it’s Effron White.

Not interested in music? There’s an artist reception for Kelly Price-Colston at Ozark Natural Foods from 5 to 7 p.m. and over on Dickson Street, it’s time once again (weather permitting) for Savor the Flavor.
