Frisco Trail users will soon be able to cross Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard by way of a 100-foot-long tunnel. The project is part of the Razorback Regional Greenway, a planned 36-mile trail that will stretch from Bella Vista to south Fayetteville.

Beer reviews are back! This week is West Mountain Brewing Company’s Brown Ale. It’s surprisingly light for a beer chock-full of flavor, and is one of West Mountain’s finest and most consistent brews.

Excellent Fayetteville rock band Fauxnz will release a new EP on Friday at Smoke & Barrel Tavern with locals Resin Hands and Future Day.

The UA athletics crew last week released the official trailer for the 2013 Arkansas football season, and it’s pretty epic.

Speaking of football, gazebos can be rented for use during Arkansas home football games in The Gardens just south of Razorback Stadium.
