Thursday To-do: May 5

Say it with us, “Holy moly.” Now say it slower.

What’s the fuss all about?

Well, besides being Cinco de Mayo, First Thursday, and NBC Nightly News anchor and managing editor Brian Williams’ 52nd birthday, there are nearly 20 choices for fun tonight in Fayetteville.

There’s live music including Aerosault DJs at Smoke & Barrel, Nathan Moore, host of “Hippy Fiasco Rides Again” is at Greenhouse Grille, and the Mill District Farmers’ Market kicks off the 2011 season.

To take it all in, you’ll need to get off work early, hit up the Mill District Farmers’ Market, head back to the square, stop by all the shops and galleries (don’t forget Block Avenue), grab a bite to eat somewhere, and then make your way to the Dickson Street area, west Fayetteville, midtown, and the UA campus.

Good luck.
