Remember last year when some local dudes resurrected the Cow Paddy Run? Well, the race is back for another year this Friday night. It’s at Gulley Park, and the proceeds from the race benefit the Fayetteville Public Education Foundation and the Cow Paddy Foundation.

TheatreSquared’s “The Fall of the House” continues at Nadine Baum Studios. Our own Tobias Wray saw it the play and loved it .

There’s a broadway musical at Walton Arts Center this weekend with Mary Poppins, and the UA’s theatre department will perform their version of Cabaret on campus at University Theatre.

Tunes-wise, Brocho is back in town for a show with locals Inner Party at The Lightbulb Club, and Cletus Got Shot is back home for a show at Smoke & Barrel Tavern. We’re pretty sure you’ll be able to get your hands on their new album, “Working Songs for the Drinking Class” at the show.
