News Briefs

Staff photos

We found six more restaurants that are set to soon open or close in Fayetteville including Texas-based chain Fuzzy’s Taco Shop.

The Hooters restaurant in north Fayetteville will close Aug. 27. According to reports, employees have confirmed the news and said the closure “has something to do with the lease.”

This week’s list of scheduled public meetings includes the Fayetteville City Council, the School Board and the Environmental Action Committee.

It’s time for another installment of our Fayetteville Photo Challenge. Tell us where this photo was taken for a chance to win a $50 gift card to the Flyer sponsor of your choice.

We talked to producer, songwriter, singer, and multi-instrumentalist Jerry Douglas for our latest profile of Fayetteville Roots Festival artists.
