Monday To-do: Oct. 4

If you’re reading this, you must’ve made it through Bikes Blues & BBQ alright, which is commendable considering how many bikers showed up this year.

Driving along Dickson Street this morning, I was reminded of how quickly all the volunteers get that place cleaned up after BBB. It’s kinda weird, actually.

It’s almost as if it never happened. (And now’s the part where all of you who live down there commence punching me in the face.)

I hope your Sunday was somewhat chillaxable and now you’re ready for a new week.


You should start the day by making sure you’re registered to vote. If you discover that you aren’t, today’s your last chance to take care of that if you’re planning to vote in the Nov. 2 election. How do you check? Head over to and click a few buttons. How do you register? Go see the County Clerk.

We’re slim on the normal live music/A&E stuff today, but there’s plenty to do.

There’s a chili cook-off benefitting Meals on Wheels at 6 p.m. out at Keller Williams Realty. Some local celebrities including Mayor Lioneld Jordan will be on hand to serve as judges. Admission is $5 for adults. Kids 12 and under eat for free.

Speaking of eating free, if you stop by Ozark Natural Foods today between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., you can grab a free piece of birthday cake. The co-op is celebrating its 39th year. Happy Birthday!

Elsewhere, there’s a documentary film event on campus in the Student Union, Walter Savage & Friends are at the Wine Cellar, and Jason Plumlee is at JJ’s.

But that’s not all…
