Weekly deals & more: Oct. 31-Nov. 6

Slim Chickens has new tailgate packs

It’s a bit of a bitter-sweet week this week, at least for us.

In the awesome category, it’s Halloween, a home Razorback game weekend, and First Thursday. In the meh-some category, however, it’s daylight savings week.

On one hand, we’ll get to sleep in an extra hour once we set our clocks back on Sunday (Nov. 6). On the other hand, that means some of us won’t see any after-work daylight until, well, sometime in the spring. Like I said, it’s bitter sweet.

You know what’s not bittersweet? All of these sales, events, specials, live music, and more from our sponsors. That’s pretty much all sweet. Please support these folks.

George’s has Chris Robinson, Jason Boland, American Aquarium, Corey Smith, Ryan Montbleau Band and more this week.
