When the American Heart Association was founded by six cardiologists in 1924, the only prescriptions given for heart disease were permanent bed rest and a diet of Valentines Day cards. Almost 90 years and 22.5 million volunteers later, the organization has accomplished much to combat the number one cause of death in the United States, not only by developing and disseminating effective treatment plans, but also by increasing awareness of preventative care and raising money for cardiovascular and stroke research. Outreach programs include CPR training, fundraising run/walks, and essential programs for healthcare professionals, educators, and caregiving everyday heroes alike.
Reminiscent of a nightclub, Huka Bar & Grill's dimly lit room hosts towering hookahs that emit flavorful wisps of smoke, from cherry and sour apple to chocolate strawberry and winter fresh.

Prior to 8 p.m., patrons enter Huka Bar & Grill free of charge; After 8 p.m., there is a $7 cover charge per person.
Reas Shanahan began fencing as a hobby while attending college at Brigham Young University–Idaho. After he graduated, though, he realized that the sport would be a lifelong pursuit rather than a passing interest. At Salt Lake City, he guides students of all ages and experience levels through fencing basics, teaching them how to maneuver a sword with precision or calculate an opponent's next move. With regular practice, students can improve reflexes, tone muscles, or learn to skewer enough shrimp and vegetables for a shish kebab in one jab.
