Wise Guys' triad of venues in Trolley Square, Downtown Ogden, and West Valley City holds an ever-rotating calendar of nationally touring and local comics. A cavalcade of beloved standups has graced Wiseguys’ brick-backed stages, including Norm MacDonald, Chris Kattan, and Bob Saget. The West Valley City location also serves a café-style menu of sandwiches, appetizers, desserts, and more than 20 types of beer.
Within a pristine, flower-filled environment, native Indians and master chefs cook up a traditional masala-filled bill of savories, seasoned with imported spices from the subcontinent's north and south. Introduce teeth to the time-honored chicken tikka masala, a Sitara specialty of boneless tandoori chicken submerged in a creamy cashew-and-tomato gravy ($7.50). The restaurant's bevy of biryanis, including vegetable ($8.99) and lamb ($10.99) varieties, are cooked in basmati rice, sprinkled with spices, and accompanied by yogurt raita.
The local branch of a national establishment, Pita Pit Ogden charms patrons’ palates with a menu of 26 stuffed pita sandwiches built for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Lead mandibles through morning exercises with the Meat the Day pita ($3.99), a protein-heavy blend of scrambled eggs, bacon, black-forest ham, cheddar cheese, and grilled veggies. Or wake up early to catch the Morning Glory pita’s colorful combination of eggs, avocado, tomato, green peppers, onions, and hash browns before it seals itself closed with the passing sun. Lunch and dinner lead eaters down divergent paths on the culinary map, veering taste buds toward classic Mediterranean tastes such as chicken souvaki and falafel-packed pitas ($6.49 each) or innovative combinations such as the three-meat dagwood ($6.49), loaded with turkey, black-forest ham, and juicy prime rib. A chopped spicy-black-bean patty offers a tasteful twist on a typical veggie burger ($6.49), and a pita packed with creamy feta provides a tasteful twist to a typical grilled cheese or a pants pocket filled with melted-blue-cheese crumbles.
Hunt Mysteries offers lighthearted and interactive faux-murder entertainment that lets dinner guests put on their sleuthing sombreros to help solve the whodunit. Boccia’s and Spaghetti Mama’s provide the locations for a bevy of different shows, including the mafia family thriller The Altos: Lower Than Sopranos, Hunt Mysteries' original comedy murder mystery An Oscar-Winning Confession, and more. There will be special food, beverage, and dessert options for in-show consumption, but they are not included in the ticket price. Most shows begin at 7 p.m., when the Clue-esque actors arrive and mingle in character with guests for half an hour, perform the opening scene, and then enjoy mingling and dining with patrons while subtly injecting mysterious hints into their dialogue, dances, and hilarious comic antics. After each show’s featured murder, guests get 20 minutes to quiz the actors and solve the puzzle.
