An unnamed alleyway off Dickson Street is set to be named “Midtown Alley” during tonight’s City Council Meeting. Some local Harry Potter fans, however, want to call it Diagon Alley.

In case you missed it…

About 400 people had the motivation, the patience, and the time to chase down a promotional vehicle last Thursday to secure tickets to an unannounced, last-minute Girl Talk show. Here are some photos.

Tuesday To-do

If you’re not interested in hearing an author speak at the library, listening to music on Mt. Sequoyah, watching basketball at Bud Walton Arena, laughing at some live comedy or playing in the snow, you could always head over to City Hall at 6 p.m. to hear some local Harry Potter fans plead their case for why an unnamed alleyway off Dickson Street should be named Diagon Alley.

Ah, Fayetteville. We love you.
