A new brew pub called Apple Blossom Brewing Company will open on Zion Road this summer. The restaurant will be located in an 8,500-square-foot space at 1550 E. Zion Road, and will include a 200 to 250-seat restaurant for lunch and dinner, and a 10-barrel brewing system to provide a new option for fans of local beer.

Restaurant chain Dickey’s BBQ will open a Fayetteville location, among five others in Arkansas.

Wakarusa released the second of three rounds of artist announcements for the 2013 festival this week. Among the new announcements were Umphrey’s McGee, Dispatch and Amon Tobin.

We welcomed a new sponsor this week. Fayetteville Music Factory is a brand new music school that recently opened in midtown Fayetteville offering guitar, piano, bass, drums, and vocal lessons in private and group sessions. How cool is that?
