Cheap Shot | Caught With My Shots Down: Undercover at the Coffee Garden

By Phil Jacobsen
POSTED // Jul 23,2008 - This week, Cheap Shot is taking a detour off the road to cheapness to find out if being too cheap is putting our local coffee shops out of business. That’s right. Are the retailers of black coffee going into the red—because of you? Stay tuned...

Cheap Shot | Deliverance: F U Scan'I’m going to Winder Farms

By Phil Jacobsen
POSTED // Jul 16,2008 - I quit. My job sucks. The boss is such a jerk; he never speaks to me. He’s never said, “Great work today, Phil. Thanks to your working here part-time, I was either able to lay off or not hire three people.” His bottom line looks great....

Cheap Shot | I Stop for Caffeine: Gulping big at Maverik and Corner 22

By Phil Jacobsen
POSTED // Jul 9,2008 - This week, I said goodbye to Alchemy Coffee. Goodbye, friendly baristas. I’ll miss your toasted peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches, quiche and fresh fruit. So long, local artwork hanging on the wall. Bye-bye, free Wi-Fi and, aloha, Kona coffee...

Cheap Shot | The Bike Is Right: Wings & wheels at TWC and Wild Rose

By Phil Jacobsen
POSTED // Jun 25,2008 - I’ll be a little late,” is my new mantra. I’m a little late because now I’m riding my bike. It’s not for the environment or to lose weight, it’s because I’m broke. All right, I get it. Gas prices are high. I...

Cheap Shot | Panda-monium: Black and white and kung-fu all over at Karate for Kids

By Phil Jacobsen
POSTED // Jun 18,2008 - I told my parents I hated them. They promised my sister a horse, my brother a cat—but they would not let me have a pet panda bear. Even at 5 years old, I knew “hate” had to be the worst thing you could say to your mom and dad. Worse...

By Phil Jacobsen
POSTED // Jun 11,2008 - I’ve lived in Salt Lake City on and off since 1997. During the “off” times, I’ve lived and worked in Antarctica. You can say by living in Antarctica, I became an adventurer, but if you said that, I’d call you a liar. Really,...

Cheap Shot | Four to the Fore! Golfing isn’t heaven, but it can be cheap

By Phil Jacobsen
POSTED // Jun 4,2008 - I don’t care about the five people I’m going to meet in heaven. What concerns me are the three people I’m going to meet at the golf course. I’m not crazy. I don’t consider golfing heaven, because it can be hell. Also, the...

Cheap Shot | Delicious Ruts: Digging the Blue Plate Diner

By Phil Jacobsen
POSTED // May 28,2008 - I’m not a handyman, but to save a few dollars I do own a toolbox, a few power tools and a shovel. When my kitchen sink was leaking, I didn’t call a plumber, I replaced the faucet. When my dining room light quit working, I learned the positives...

Cheap Shot | Sidecar Follies: Using the new liquor laws to your drinking advantage

By Phil Jacobsen
POSTED // May 21,2008 - Having sex at BYU is like reading the Kama Sutra upside down. Sex is sex, but you can’t have “extramarital relations” as stated by the BYU honor code. However, when I went to BYU, it seemed like the co-eds I knew who were majoring in...

Cheap Shot | Jesus Unplugged: Buyin’ banjos at Acoustic Music

By Phil Jacobsen
POSTED // May 7,2008 - Dan and Kat got married. They swore their love to each other and I promised to learn how to play the banjo. They shared their vows surrounded by friends and family, but I kept my vows to myself. They said, “I do.” I said, “Banjo.”...
