Daily Flyer: Wednesday, Nov. 23

In case you missed it…

Ozarks At Large host Kyle Kellams will host a conversation with TheatreSquared director Robert Ford, along with the cast of the production of “It’s a Wonderful Life” next week at the Fayetteville Public Library.

Speaking of the library, if you haven’t checked out the Project Fayetteville digital image archive in a while, you’ve got a lot of catching up to do. There are nearly 1,000 Fayetteville photos over there including this photo of the current Flyer office from 1973.

With leading scorer Marshawn Powell out for the season, the University of Arkansas basketball team struggled, but managed a late 13-1 run to come from behind and beat Utah Valley 67-59 at Bud Walton Arena Tuesday night.

Happy Birthday!

Wednesday To-do

If you’re like many folks, you’re going to want to skip cooking dinner tonight in an effort to save energy for tomorrow.

To help with that, Greenhouse Grille is hosting its annual pre-Thanksgiving dinner tonight from 5 to 10 p.m. and besides an extensive special menu of mostly local and organic foods, local band 3 Penny Acre is set to perform.

There’s more tonight, too.

Smoke & Barrel has Tavern Trivia followed by the annual Gobble Wobble Thanksgiving Eve DJ dance party, JR’s hosts another Drunken Spelling Bee, Maxine’s has a hip-hop-flavored open mic night and FIX hosts “Dranksgiving” with DJs Bizar, Doohickey, Robe Flax, and EQ.
