Miner’s Grill & Sports Bar caters to sports fans, friends, and families alike with a wide selection of American eats and plenty of HDTVs showcasing professional and collegiate sports. Diners can dig into classic American fare such as wings, grilled salmon, rib-eye steak, and Angus-beef burgers while enjoying a game on a massive LCD video wall.
Reyes Adobe Restaurant composes scratch-made Mexican dishes of homemade corn tortillas and fresh ingredients for lunch and dinner. Dining duos can bite into appetizers such as quesadillas, nachos, or chicken taquitos, or opt to feed each other bites while other diners look on in quiet wonder at the teamwork on display. After sharing a starter, each diner mollify piqued taste buds with an entree, which range from the tender steak pieces of the carne asada plate to the tightly wrapped tidings of a bean and cheese burrito or grilled shrimp burrito. Chicken tortilla soup soothes south-of-the-border souls, while the taco fajita salad is the result of a standoffish taco opening up at last to offer diners a lettuce-filled embrace. Conclude the feast with the sweet flavors of flan, a mexican tart, or with the deliciously contrasting flavor notes of deep-fried ice cream.
Underneath Park City Live’s shimmering laser light system, a slew of musical acts shine. The energetic venue is equally at home pulsating with dance music or hosting a stripped-down acoustic show, beckoning a diverse crowd of music aficionados to its dynamic confines.
Visitors to the Utah Arts Festival stride across concrete promenades and grassy lawns sprawled out between fountains and modern buildings, which have glass walls that reflect the fest’s vibrant paintings and eclectic sculptures. Since its inception more than 35 years ago, the four-day festival has taken over a multiblock radius to accommodate hundreds of visual artists, musicians, performers, and culinary artists, each celebrating modern art and the local community. Throughout indoor and outdoor exhibitions, visitors explore varied works of visual art represented through special exhibitions and hands-on workshops with featured artists. A marketplace also gives artists a place to sell their paintings, wearable art, and sculptures to help disseminate their crafts and raise enough money for van Gogh’s ghost to move out of their basements.
Musicians score the festival throughout its days with worldwide genres on several outdoor stages, and storytellers and other literary artists tickle ears with eclectic tales and recitations of the UN staff directory. Across the grounds, festival staffers recycle the fete’s discarded plastic, aluminum, and cardboard as well as food scraps and vegetable oil, and promote eco-friendly practices with a protected bicycle lot and bike valet.
Mickey and Minnie, Scarlett and Rhett, Jack and Rose—all classic cinematic pairs. During their travels throughout the northwest, friends Dave and Matt discovered one more: beer and film. They brought this concept back to Salt Lake City in 1997 when they opened Brewvies Cinema Pub, giving movie lovers a place to take in a flick while sipping one of 19 beers on tap. These include locally brewed options from Epic Brewing Company and Uinta Brewing.
Beer in hand, patrons ages 21 and up can settle in and watch exhilarating blockbusters or smaller, critically acclaimed films on one of the theater's four screens. Brewvies Cinema Pub even indulges more eclectic tastes with special screenings of classic movies as well as cult favorites. To complement their beer, patrons can grab a quick bite from the concession stand, which features everything from hummus plates and coconut shrimp to 10-inch pizzas and pulled-pork sandwiches smothered in a homemade honey-chipotle barbecue sauce.
"Once upon a time a bearded man had a dream, a dream to make the best chicken wings on the planet," begins the Wing Nutz story. That man spent years experimenting with sauces and techniques, and many would agree that he achieved that dream with his wings—which are crispy on the outside, moist on the inside, and coated in sauces such as apricot teriyaki and southern honey barbecue.
At various Wing Nutz franchises, chefs follow his same wing recipe, using cage- and hormone-free meat that is never frozen, and then baking, never frying, the wings. They also whip up fall-off-the-bone hog wings (better known as pork ribs, eaten wing-style) and lighter options, such as smoked salmon wraps and salads. The restaurant's own line of brews, Nut Job Beers, stands ready cool mouths set aflame by one of the spicier sauces.
