Fayetteville folks who’ve recently ventured up to the square might have noticed signs of a new restaurant coming to East Square Plaza. BHK on the Square will soon open in the old Hjem Restaurant space.
Please welcome our latest sponsor, a brand new healthy pet food store called The Whole Pet. Stop by the store at 2423 N. College Ave., and welcome them to the Flyer family!
The final piece of the 2012 Arkansas Razorbacks football schedule is now in place. We learned yesterday that the LSU home game has been moved to the Friday after Thanksgiving. Today, the “TBD” was removed from the Texas A&M away game location. That matchup will take place in College Station, Tex. instead of Cowboys Stadium.
An Artosphere kickoff event is set for tonight at the Walton Arts Center. At 4 p.m. local band 3 Penny Acre will play on the plaza alongside a special Farmer’s Market. At 5 p.m. the “Structuring Nature” exhibit is set to open inside Joy Pratt Markham Gallery. Expect more music and gallery tours later in the evening followed by a 7:30 p.m. conversation with bestselling author Michael Pollan.
Also tonight, it’s the second First Thursday Fayetteville event of the season. Things should kick off at around 5 p.m. on the downtown square.
