Workers use backhoes to clear snow from the Walton Arts Center parking lot Wednesday morning in Fayetteville.

With some areas of Fayetteville reporting up to 17 inches of snow, we’re finding it hard to believe that anyone is open for business today. According to the Flyer Wire, only one bar has made the call to stay open this evening, and that’s JJ’s Grill-N-Chill.

Who can blame anybody for waiting to decide, though? It’s 10 a.m. and the snow still hasn’t stopped.

The only thing we can safely guarantee from the list below is the Razorback men’s basketball game at 7 p.m. on KHOG and The team is about 500 miles away in Mississippi today, safely out of reach of the blizzard-like weather we’re seeing here.

As usual during circumstances like these, be careful if you leave the house and double-check with the venues before you try to do any of the following.
