A look into the LAN party location before their next Street Fighter V tournament.
When this blog first started, the very first story I decided to cover was a major Halo 3 tournament being held at the Megaplex Theatres in the Gateway. Since then, I've done my best to give those of you who game for fun and for a living some kind of local source for all things happening with local gaming tournaments and developers.
We're gearing up for the next round of conventions in town, and with it, we'll start seeing a surge of new art being produced by local creators. One of the names you should be looking out for is Ben Darling, who has an awesome knack for creating originals of famous characters, as well as parody pieces and original designs.
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.
Examining the writing group as they hit their one-year anniversary.

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.
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.
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."
A preview of the latest show with dancer Justin Bass.
Now that we're in a new year, we're going to start seeing the second half of the performing arts season for many local companies. The first creative shots to be fired will come from RDT, presenting Emerge Jan. 6-7 at the Rose Wagner Center.
Exploring the latest chapter in the choose-your-own-adventure series.
Zombies: Like the vampires of the '90s and bad CGI monsters of the '00s, they're embedded in the pop-culture landscape. And much like the characters themselves, the genre has been bled to death, left stumbling around waiting for someone to put a bullet in it.
We're finally into 2017, and I don't know how you personally feel, but I need some comedy and fast. This month we're focusing on Joe Everard, a local comedian who has been coming up through the ranks to the point of hosting shows and being a notable figure in the local indie circuit.
