Correction: Best of Utah Blunders

In “Best of Utah 2011” [March 31, City Weekly]: La Sage Bistro was misspelled as was Mandi Nuttall’s My Beauty Campaign.  The Website for the Speedgoat 50k  should have been KarlMeltzer.com/SpeedGoat-50K.

One of our “best” blunders was leaving out the award for Living Planet Aquarium. Here is what readers should have read:

Best Penguins in Your Face
Living Planet Aquarium “Penguin Encounter”

Aquariums have typically been a great place to get closer to wild critters than zoos tend to permit. But you don’t usually expect to find penguins among the animals separated from you only by a layer of Plexiglas. The Living Planet Aquarium’s “Penguin Encounter” is set up like a South American research station for studying the Gentoo penguins, and you’ll feel like you could do that research yourself when you’re standing practically nose-to-beak with the playful birds, and have enough information on hand that you might even be able to identify them by name.
