For more than 30 years, Green Street has been dishing out a full menu of beer-hall staples while invigorating ears with live entertainment five nights a week. During warm months, customers can lounge on Green Street's palatial garden patio while noshing on palate-pleasing appetizers such as sweet potato fries ($4.99), artichoke dip ($7.29), or the Combo Mombo—a platter of chicken wings, potato skins, southwestern egg rolls, and battered fried mushrooms ($9.99) easily shared among friends or devoured by one huge toddler. An onslaught of entrees includes the blackened-salmon caesar salad, which parades across the palate led by an 8-ounce filet ($9.49), or the chili verde burrito ($7.99) served as a special on Tuesdays, sating beginning of the week tortilla-entrapped cravings. An Angus bacon cheeseburger ($7.99) and a half-rack of grilled, barbecued baby-back ribs ($12.99) round out meat-centric menu options.
Silver Restaurant has transformed the interior of its vintage brick building, which was built in 1926, into three modern and distinct floors. Next to the dining room, an open kitchen provides patrons with glimpses of the chefs as they transform fresh, seasonal, and local ingredients into new interpretations of classic American dishes. Though the menu changes based on availability, dishes may include organic chicken thighs with heirloom vegetables, roasted squab with foie gras, and fig-wrapped kurabuta pork chops. Whatever the season, a selection of local beers and artisanal cocktails—with playful names such as the Toe Tapper and the Thyme Stopper—help wash down every flavorful bite. These drinks are often crafted at the mezzanine-level bar. If one were to head downstairs instead, they'd enter a cozy lounge with a wine cellar stocked with more than 3,000 bottles.
Salty Dinner Theater, which ABC 4 describes as ?bringing a twist to traditional on-stage classics,? combines professional actors and proficient chefs to stage productions performed at area eateries. Audience members gobble supper as performers interact with them before and during the production. Regularly inhabiting Madeline?s Steakhouse, The Old Spaghetti Factory, Joe Morley?s Smoked Beef & Bar-B-Q, and Mimi?s Caf?, among other locales, the show-accompanying meals range from scratch-made baked lasagna with ground beef and pork to a pound of succulent smoked-beef brisket.
The WCFC pins proficient punchers against each other during intense one-on-one bouts. Throughout the Last Man Standing event, fighting fans absorb four hours of adrenaline-packed jabs from floor seats, which are close enough to cheer on fighters, overhear the trainers' strategies, and slip favorite protein-shake recipes into competitors' gym bags. Two simultaneous eight-man tournaments—divided by weight class—sustain the evening of nonstop scrapping during five-minute bouts, which afford combatants little time to conserve energy or stall with levelheaded games of Monopoly.
Fifth-place finisher in the seventh season of American Idol, Brooke White massages eardrums with an intergenerational blend of soulful sound and heartfelt lyrics. With a songbook that includes titles such as "Hold Up My Heart" and "Radio Radio," White fuses retro and modern pop into a charming mélange of old and new, much like Charlie Chaplin's eye-popping 3-D dinosaur-adventure films. Toting their respective meldings of pop and soul, Ryan Innes and fraternal duo Truman will each add their tuneful talents to the night's musical mix.
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. But the venue didn't begin life as a haven for audiophiles and their ears. The historic Summit County War Veterans Memorial Building, completed in 1940 following a fire, was originally home to an American Legion room, rifle range, gymnasium, and the Boy Scouts. But by 1984, the entertainment needs of the city had changed, and the building began providing recreation of the more artistic variety. Today, the space serves as the home for Park City Live, as well as O?Shucks Bar & Grill and Rock ?N? Reilly?s Irish Pub.
