Your Cre8tivity

Chatting with the trio of hosts behind the interview-themed podcast.
Last year we saw some podcasts come and go from the local scene, and while it was sad to see some with great potential shut down, it was nice to hear some fresh shows take hold of the mic. One of those shows is Your Cre8tivity, whose trio of hosts from very different backgrounds converge into the studio and interview people who are trying to shake things up in the SLC area.

Local Releases: Pigeon-holding A Shupecabra

Brand new music from Shupecabra, Pigeon, The Hung Ups and more
This weekend we have a unique set of circumstances, as we have one release show for a solo act and two release shows for the same band over two nights. But before we give you the shows you need to see, here's a quick glimpse at the latest local albums to be released this week.

Movie Reviews: Live By Night, Patriots Day, The Bye Bye Man, Monster Trucks, Silence

Elle, The Autopsy of Jane Doe
Multiplexes shake off their New Year's doldrums with a handful of entries ranging from sublime contemplation to ridiculous action, with art house offerings including a possible Oscar nominee. Ben Affleck once again adapts Dennis Lehane with the gangster drama Live By Night (pictured), but the story gets lost in fortune-cookie dialogue.

Just Write SLC

Examining the writing group as they hit their one-year anniversary.
If you believe the statistics, chances are that 60 percent of you reading this right now are working on a book. I am; my editor recently published one; it wouldn't shock me if most of the City Weekly staff has an idea cooking in the kiln.

The Salt Miner

Checking out the latest local products-only website to hit Utah.
Over the years, many different websites and movements have encouraged you to look for Utah-made products and buy local. But there aren't many places where you can go to an all-local shop, and browse items only made in Utah.

Wine Wednesday: A Ravenswood Trio

I’m very fond of the American Zinfandels produced by Joel Peterson and his Ravenswood wines. Here’s a trio to try: Ravenswood Vintners Blend Old Vine Zinfandel is a great bang-for-the-buck at $12.99, and it’s even a better bargain when it goes on sale here, which is frequently, for $9.99.

Monday Meal: Wintry Slow-Cooked Beef Daube Provencal

The best beef stew I ever ate was at a restaurant in Provence, France, in the town of Avignon.

Honest John Bitters Co.

A look into the new brand of bitters found at The Rest.
Over the past two years, we've seen a surge in small businesses that focus primarily on bitters. It's not to the degree of where you'll find all locally made products in every single bar and mixology shop in town, but enough to where people are catching on to the craze and starting to enjoy and experiment with them as they head out for drinks.

In The Loop: 1/7/17. Colder Than Your Ex's Attitude

Awesome events for you to check out from January 8-21.
Hello to all you coat-wearing, scarf-tying, beanie-donning, shovel-moving, car-slipping, slow-driving, ice-scraping, salt-carrying, winter-has-finally-decided-to-grace-us enthusiasts! I've been working from home lately, so over the past week or so I've been staring out my window with a rum and Coke in the morning and thinking to myself "well, that looks terrible."

Local Releases: Finding G-Life In Strong Words

New albums from Strong Words, Uvluv, G-Life and more.
Holy crap, it is colder than I care to think about outside. Why anyone waited until this month to do an album release show is beyond me, but we've got three of them lined up for you so you can go stay warm to local tunes.
