2 UCW NOVEMBER 2 - 8, 2022 WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM NOVEMBER 2 - 30 CORNERSTONE SCAVENGER HUNT FAYETTEVILLE HISTORY MUSEUM The Fayetteville History Museum is ex- cited to host a unique self-serve down- town history adventure in November. Many of Fayetteville's historic buildings feature cornerstones, a stone that traditionally forms the base corner of a building, joining two walls. From Tuesday through Saturday, during the first three weeks of November, visitors are invited to travel through downtown and discover small hidden cornerstone gems scattered among Fayetteville's historic buildings. The Downtown Cornerstone Scavenger Hunt is for all historians ages six and over. Participants can stop at the Fayetteville History Museum during operating hours to pick up a scaven- ger hunt guide. The guide features a map and clues directing historians to nine cornerstones throughout downtown. NOVEMBER 3 - 13 THE ODD COUPLE CAPE FEAR REGIONAL THEATRE When Felix (a fastidious news writer) and Oscar (a sloppy sportswriter) both find themselves suddenly single, they become roommates to thwart loneli- ness and save money. Within days, their opposing natures have them at each other's throats in a hilarious story that will ring true to anyone who's ever found a great friend in their total opposite (or lived with a roommate!) Rated PG for Parental Guidance. This play contains some mild adult themes. Tickets can be bought at bit.ly/cfrt-odd-couple.
