Monday To-do: Oct. 11

In case you were hanging out in a cave all last week and didn’t hear the news, the possibility of Snoop Dogg coming to town went from partly shizzle to fo’ shizzle in a matter of hours.

Students can reserve one free ticket per student ID starting today at 9 a.m. Tickets for the general public go on sale Wednesday (Oct. 13) morning at 9 a.m.

Also on the ticket front, you can reserve your Walton Arts Center seats for the Randy Newman show now if you’d like. Prices start at $32 and go all the way up to $65. The first two rows are already sold out so get to buyin’ if you want a seat in January.


Today is not nearly as jam packed as last Monday, but there are some things to do if you don’t have a DVR date with a Don Draper.

At 7 p.m., the Fayetteville Public Library hosts a free premiere of the documentary “Temple of Peace” in the library’s Walker Community Room. (trailer embedded below)

The documentary tells the story of Fadil Bayyari, a Palestinian-American Muslim from Springdale, who reaches out to the local Jewish community to help build a synagogue.

Bayyari worked with synagogue members, including construction manager Jeremy Hess, to bridge gaps between the two religions and bring their communities together.

There’s more tonight, too. Keep reading.
