Monday To-do

With only two days left before Bikes, Blues & BBQ 2011 and a heartbreaking Razorback football loss still stinging, many Fayetteville residents have already gone into hiding for the week.

If you’re looking to get in a few last-minute outings before the bikers take over the town, there are a few options on tonight’s calendar.

Rogue is hosting another Metal Monday event, JJ’s has Lyal Strickland and there’s karaoke at Powerhouse.

If nothing on the list looks fun, just sit outside and enjoy a quiet fall evening in Fayetteville. It’ll likely be your last chance until this time next week.
