Here is a look at what is happening in Northwest Arkansas sponsored by Canada Dry Ginger Ale.

Here’s a unique event to light your weekend on fire. Saddlebock Brewery in Springdale is having a night of dueling bonfires. Yes, you hear that right. One of the bonfires will be huge and will be outside in the field. The other, will be smaller and viewable from Saddlebock’s Wine Room. The million dollar question? Which bonfire will last the longest and be crowded champion?! And, will size matter? You can find out tonight. Ignition starts at six p-m.

Earlier this week, we mentioned that the Community Creative Center in Fayetteville is rolling out a few new classes this winter. Here’s something you might not expect from CCC. It’s an “Intro to Acting” class. The class is for any adult wishing to participate in the local, vibrant, and growing theatre and film industries. The six week course kicks off Saturday, January 8 at 4:00 p.m. and runs on consecutive Saturdays until February 12.
