May Gallery Stroll: Samantha Calmes

A look at the artwork currently on display at Vive Juicery
This month's Gallery Stroll is a weird one. I had received an agreement from Samantha Calmes (also of the band Vinyl Tapestries) to do an interview for her showcase at Vive Juicery.

Monday Meal: Wiener Schnitzel

Wiener schnitzel is quite easy to prepare, provided you are organized and set up an assembly line-type prep station beforehand. Traditionally, wiener schnitzel was made with scallopine-type veal medallions.

Election Date Set

Lt. Gov. lines up schedule for Chaffetz' replacement election.
That timeline is structured to match with municipal elections. The primary is scheduled Aug. 15, and the general election is Nov. 7. Candidates began filing for the position Friday at 1 p.m. and can continue until 5 p.m. May 26.

Local Releases: Karaoke With Bubbles

New local albums from SuperBubble, NSPS, Human Leather and more.
We've got one whole release show this weekend, which is fine considering that mother nature decided to have a seizure in our back yard this week, and caused all four seasons to happen within a 24-hour period, so getting out may not be a priority for some. First, here's a quick list of all the local albums that came out digitally this week; then join us below for the release show info.

Mom And The New Dad

Revisiting with a pair of soon-to-be-wed friends and their new podcast.
When you do a job like this, you often get to know the people you highlight a lot more than just whatever was in the interview. I've had the pleasure of knowing Chris Holifield before his podcast I Am Salt Lake took off, and Krissie Shelley over the past few years while she was a standup comedian.

Movie Reviews: Everything, Everything; Alien Covenant; Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Obit, Norman, Chuck
Two franchises that couldn't possibly be more different bring their latest installment to multiplexes, along with a young-adult romance adaptation and a trio of new art-house offerings. Everything, Everything  (pictured) hits the right, sweet notes in adapting Nicola Yoon's novel about a teen with an autoimmune disorder dealing with first love.

Brooklyn Ottens

Staring deeply into the patterns of the SLC-based artist's work.
A few years ago, I had the privilege of checking out the art of Brooklyn Ottens, as well as work with her on a few artistic projects. Her designs and pattern pieces at the time were simply stunning, as her work went into lavish detail at the tiniest levels, and stood out from a lot of the other works.

Wine Wednesday: Bonny Doon Clos de Gilroy

A longtime fan of Bonny Doon wines and winemaker/philosopher/wordsmith/raconteur Randall Grahm, I especially like his Bonny Doon Clos de Gilroy ($19). As Grahm puts it, Clos de Gilroy isn't made from the "weapons-grade Grenache" that he uses to produce Bonny Doon Le Cigare Volant.

Gov. Gary Herbert announced on Tuesday the state’s intent to replace 100 “polluting, stinky, old buses” with new fuel-efficient models in an effort to clean up Utah’s dirty air.
