  • Salt Lake City: Get Ready for Romance

    It's not too early to start thinking about Valentine's Day. What will you be doing to create some romance Valentine's Day weekend? Don't wait until the afternoon of February 14 to run to your neighborhood grocery store for a last-minute box of low-quality chocolates. Planning ahead can help you make

  • When it's late, take it to the Pie Hole

    Fresh, fast, affordable, and seemingly always open. Salt Lake City now has another spot for a bite after last call. Pie Hole recently opened on State Street, and is "throwin' dough" all night and covering it with both traditional and new topping combinations. At their low-prices, it would be a crime

  • Plenty of Laughs, Great Performances Enlighten "Black Comedy"

    Dreary January can be a little hard to get through, which is one reason I appreciated the clever, lighthearted farce Black Comedy , onstage now through Saturday, Jan. 29 at Pioneer Memorial Theatre. The play takes audiences back to Swinging London of the 1960s, and also delivers something all too

  • Salt Lake Sundance Dining Guide

    Late January offers some of the coldest, greyest weeks of Utah's year, but after living here for five years we've learned to adapt. How, you might ask? Movies! We love to stay inside and get warm with a big bowl of chili and a good movie during harsh weather. And even better, during the coldest few

  • Free Full Moon Snowshoe Outings

    Nothing beats snowshoeing under a full moon with fresh snow in the mountains. Learn about the nocturnal residents of the mountains in winter. This is a great way to spend a night wandering around on snowshoes! Friday, January 21, 2011: 7:00PM at Spruces Campground, Big Cottonwood Canyon

  • Child's Play at The City Library

    This time of year is always a difficult time for me. My body does not function well when temperatures go below freezing so I must look for entertainment and education for myself and daughter indoors. This cuts our list of available activities in more than half. Also, since I am cheap, I must look

    Lugano Restaurant will be hosting it's first Outdoor Retailer kick-off event with Big Sky Brewery on Wednesday, January 19, 2011. As the opening of Lugano's Annual Dinner Series, the event will feature a six-course locally inspired tasting menu paired and prepared with beers from Big Sky Brewery.

    If you are looking for a casual place to play billiards, casually meet up with friends, or just hang out for several hours, Poplar Street Pub could be the place for you. Conveniently located just steps away from the Salt Palace Convention Center, and open late every day, it's a great place for

    We all know about the fun skiing and snowboarding Utah has to offer; but did you know about all those other family fun winter activities? Ice skating is always a fun option for the entire family. Some ice rinks, like the Utah Olympic Oval, even have cute little walkers for the youngest members of

  • Clark Planetarium

    We used our Salt Lake Connect passes to visit the Clark Planetarium at the Gateway. Did you know that all of the exhibits are free and there is no admission charge to get in?! The only events that they charge for are the laser lights shows, and any movie you want to see! They also have a great gift
