Weekly Sponsor Deals & More: Sept. 27 – Oct. 3

In about two days, Fayetteville will begin rumbling to the sound of somewhere in the neighborhood of one gazillion motorcycles. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you must be new here.

Otherwise, you know that I’m referring to Bikes, Blues & BBQ, which is rolling into town on Wednesday.

As a result, lots of folks are doing BBB-related specials this week. If that’s not your thing, there are other places in town that will provide “a haven away from the madness of Bikes, Blues & BBQ” as well.
