Hardaway & The Commoners play Powerhouse Seafood’s Party on the Patio Thursday night.

Alright, smokers. We’ve got good news and bad news. Which do you want first? OK, dumb question.

The bad news* is that a smoking ban for all Fayetteville bars has been proposed and unless the majority of the City Council is against it, you’ll be walking outside to smoke a lot more. In preparation, you might want to start practicing saying, “Could you watch my beer for a minute?” you know, just in case.

The good news is that the sun is finally shining on our corner of the state which means your smoke breaks will be a helluva lot more enjoyable today.

*Yeah, yeah, we know. Not every smoker thinks this is bad news.


Speaking of good weather, the Hardaway & The Commoners show tonight at Powerhouse Seafood‘s Party on the Patio should be fun.

On the just-as-fun-but-not-just-as-good-weather-needing front, the NAMAs are tonight at George’s Majestic Lounge. Good luck to all the nominees.
