There was some confusion this week regarding the appointment process of A&P Commission members, so we asked City Attorney Kit Williams to help clear things up. Here’s what we found out.

The historic Mount Sequoyah Retreat and Conference Center celebrated their 90th anniversary in Fayetteville with a bell-ringing ceremony on the downtown square. Happy Birthday, you old conference center, you.

J.T. Wampler tried out Moose Drool Brown Ale for this week’s It’s All About The Beer column. Spoiler alert: He liked it.

Pub crawl t-shirt artwork

Saturday is St. Patrick’s Day, and there’s no shortage of excuses to wear your finest green clothing in Fayetteville. The Fayetteville Public Library has McCafferty Irish Dancers Performing at 10:30 a.m.

There’s a St. Patrick’s Day Parade scheduled to begin at noon on Mountain Street, where it will make its way toward East Avenue and onto Dickson Street.

Later on, there’s a St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl on Dickson Street at 5:30 p.m. Dave Malm and Steve Kelsey (aka Paddy O’Grill) and Bill O’Sayle will perform Irish songs at Greenhouse Grille Saturday night.

In non-Irish entertainment news, Kudzu, Thunderlizards and Suzi Trash are at JR’s Lightbulb Club, and Nashvillians the Kopecky Family Band are at Smoke & Barrel with Conwayians Don’t Stop Please.

Also, Benjamin Del Shreve and his brother Randal Shreve are performing together at Rogue. They’re calling themselves The Brothers Shreve. Makes sense.
