Three Days of Dark: Dark Arts Festival
The Dark Arts Festival has been running in Utah for the past 10 years, catering to the folks with a taste for the macabre, different and dark. Area 51 (451 S. 400 East) will host this year’s “Alumni Festival” from June 11 through June 13. Every night has a different theme, beginning with Friday’s “Valley of the Kings” Egyptian night and ending with Sunday’s “Time Warp” Rocky Horror theme. A sample of slated performers: Voltaire, Clint Catalyst and The Strand. For the full festival line-up and more information, visit DarkArtsFestival.com.
Get Lucky: Lucky 13
Fortunately for everyone in the vicinity of Spring Mobile Ballpark, home of the Salt Lake Bees, a bar with great burgers, people and drinks is nearby. Lucky 13 (135 W. 1300 South) is situated close enough to TRAX and the ballpark for plenty of pre- and post-game shenanigans. If you haven’t been into this venue since the remodel and ownership change, you should. It still retains the charm of the VFW and the previous interior, but the space has been updated and features a great liquor selection and some of the nicest bartenders in town.
Bartender Tony Marino has been around the bar scene and made plenty of friends all over the valley. He recently settled into the new digs at Lucky 13 and started doing what he does best: concocting tasty beverages.
