Make The Most Of Game Night

“Dominion” has had amazing success since its release in 2008, while “7 Wonders” is off to a similarly hot start since its release last fall. The two games share some similarities, such as play time of about 30 minutes or less, but their differences are what make both must-own titles.

War Games

I traveled around the area to observe the aforementioned war game activities, and what I saw was anything but violent. I saw friends competing against friends and fathers having fun with their sons.


Tasting The Truth

Dark Truth Stout from Boulevard Brewing Co. in Kansas City pours black with no highlights and a creamy tan head. My trick to find the color of a black beer is to light a match behind an edge of the glass, thereby giving away a dark beer’s actual color.

Piece Treaty

You seemed to suggest that the guy bargain for sex from his wife: “Talk about how much sex you’d like, and how much she’s willing to provide, and work out a compromise.” My question is, “Why bother?”


A Royal Conversation

Country music star and songwriter Royal Wade Kimes comes back every year to his hometown of Chester, just south of Fayetteville, to present an outdoor concert and lead a trail ride to raise money for the Backpacks for Kids program. The event helped feed 2,500 kids last year.

A Legacy With The Blues

The Legacy building in downtown Fayetteville is taking on a tenant who promises to open a blues club.


Harvest The Music

It’s still more than a month away but some ticket packages are already sold out for the Yonder Mountain String Band’s Harvest Music Festival.


No Reason To Be Crabby

The menu at China Cafe is rather vast, much like a menu should be at a good Chinese restaurant. I finally decided on the crab rangoon as an appetizer and the shrimp with Chinese vegetables as an entree, which came with an egg roll and a side of fried rice.
