Monday To-do: Dec. 20

With the calendar as empty as it is tonight, you’re going to have to think outside of the list.

Fortunately, there are only five days until Christmas which will give you a few easy non-list choices for evening fun: Finish your shopping, wrap your gifts, sew a Santa suit, pop a wheelie on a reindeer. Easy stuff.

If you really want to be a hotshot, though, (did I just write the word hotshot? weird) you could stay up until just past 2 a.m. to see the first total lunar eclipse in two years.

According to Wikipedia, Fayetteville should start to see something at around 11:30 p.m., but the greatest eclipse won’t be visible until about 2:15ish a.m.

I’ve never seen a lunar eclipse. Come to think of it, I’ve never seen a solar eclipse either. In fact, the closest I’ve come to an eclipse is when the super cool kids in high school were flying past me in them on College Avenue during lunch break. Unfortunately, my 1980 Chevy Citation just couldn’t keep up.

It could, however, fit nine dorks in it (two in the trunk) which is more than double the amount of people that a Mitsubishi Eclipse could hold.

Nine dorks > four jocks. Right?

Here’s the short list:


Fayetteville Public Library: Silent Library for Teens
JJ’s Grill n Chill: Miller & Bufford
The Perk: Open acoustic jam
Pesto Cafe: Darren Ray
