Weekender

As temperatures cool down in Fayetteville, it’s an optimal weekend to cozy up next to a campfire or snuggle up to a puppy – warm seasonal drinks mandatory.

SATURDAY

Even if you’re not a dog person, you’re probably, at least, a puppy person –– who isn’t? Those in dire need of caffeine and cuddly pups can start their morning with both at Cups with a Pup, starting at 9 a.m. on the Ozark Natural Foods patio.

Northwest Arkansans looking for a unique, socially distanced live music experience might want to check out Avant Garde, featuring multiple artists, from 7-9 p.m. at Mount Sequoyah Center. Event coordinators suggest attendees bring a camping chair and a blanket. Drinks will be available for purchase, and tickets, starting at $10, are available online.

George’s Majestic Lounge always has something special to offer on Saturday nights, and this weekend is no exception. Locals in need of a laugh or some loosening up after a dreary week won’t want to miss out on Comedy Nights at George’s, from 9-11 p.m. Tickets are available at the door and online for $10.

SUNDAY

The What Co. theatre group is debuting an original play from 8-9 p.m. that chronicles the effects of distance on the human experience. The performance, located outdoors at B-Unlimited on West Center Street, has a seating capacity of 30 people. Tickets are available online for both the in-person performance and a live stream.

Perusing art exhibits at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art or The Momentary is a great way to warm up this weekend. Crystal Bridges is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and The Momentary is open 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Timed visits to Crystal Bridges can be reserved online.
