On Thursday, September 1st beginning at 7:30 pm, Manoli's will team up with Scott Cunningham, sommelier and owner of Bottleneck Wine and Spirits, for a special wine pairing dinner showcasing some of Bottleneck's boutique small-batch wines. The tentative menu and wine pairings are as follows:
Peering behind the traveling "original practices" theatre crew
Shakespeare! It doesn't matter how the hell you feel about the man, or the many men rumored to make up the man, the works he produced are timeless classics that have been passed on in the grand lore of theater.
We preview the latest sci-fi shoot 'em up from Two Tribes.
It's rare to get an awesome preview for a sci-fi game, since many developers are paranoid about what die-hard gamers will think about it before it drops onto a system. And that's perfectly understandable, as geeks will tear shit apart for random reasons.
A look at the latest works hanging at Mountain West Hard Cider.
Slowly but surely, the heat is finally decreasing, and we're able to move about more around town on foot without melting into a puddle of sweat. Still, this past Salt Lake Gallery Stroll was a warm one, plus an orange pollution sunset to start the weekend, so it was only natural for me to take a break with a drink.
Awesome events to check out from Aug. 21 through Sept. 3
Hello to all you coffee-drinking, iTunes playlist-listening, steam-howling, booth-hugging, out-late-getting-with-the-night-owl-crew enthusiasts! Lately, I've been hitting up random coffee shops past 11 p.m. to write stuff, and see what's been going on with the city before half of the downtown crowd make their way back to college.
Summer winds down with the arrival of a Biblical epic, a new Werner Herzog documentary and one of the best films of the year, animated or otherwise. War Dogs (pictured) showcases another terrific performance by Jonah Hill, but can't find the right tone in its real-life tale of sociopathic capitalism.
The local visionary managing several badass businesses.
If you've never had the opportunity to see one of Bianca Velasquez's projects in action, do yourself a favor and go over this list when you're done reading this interview. This SLC resident is a member of the band Dream Slut, the creator of Happybutton Cartoons, a co-creator for Piñata TV, manager for several local bands, and creator of neon signs for a small business she founded called Neon Bite.
On Sunday, Sept. 18, Fratelli Ristorante in Sandy will host a "locals only" wine pairing dinner featuring wines from two locally owned (Utah) wineries: IG (Iron Gate) and Kiler Grove, along with locally produced menu items. Seatings are available from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
