The 5 events above offer some great options for the family, but if you have a sitter this weekend — and you’re in need of a date night or a Girls’ Night Out — our Friday 5 sponsor, Black Apple Crossing, always has a fun line-up of events during the week and on weekends.

This weekend you can hear MotherFunkShip (Friday night, Oct. 20 at 8 p.m.) and Jamie Lou & The Hullabaloo (Saturday night, Oct. 21 at 8 p.m.). They also have Taco Tuesdays, trivia nights and book club events during the week! BAX has a new event every Thursday called Sip & Stretch Cider and Yoga Night starting at 7:30pm. 

Black Apple Crossing is the state’s first cidery. It’s located in downtown Springdale off Emma Avenue just past mile marker 13. Black Apple Crossing has produced naturally gluten-free hard apple cider with no added sulfites or other preservatives since July 2015. Click here to visit the Black Apple Crossing website.

Fall has arrived and you will want to celebrate it with their seasonal cinnamon and clove spiced cider: Spice of Life! On tap starting October 6th.
