Most of the kids in the area are out of school for Spring Break this week, which must be really awesome for them.
Most of the adults in the area, however, don’t get to take a spring break from work. Lame.
Despite the fact that we’d much rather be compiling this list of events, deals and specials from a beach somewhere, we’re taking comfort in the fact that the weather is looking pretty amazing right here in Fayetteville.
There also happen to be some pretty awesome things happening in town over the next seven days.
Here’s what’s new for this week. Enjoy!
