Dick(el) In A Cup–A Dixie Cup
Dick ’n’ Dixie’s opened March 30, and the neighborhood bar that replaced Andy’s is bustling. If you aren’t a hipster and really need a bar on the corner of 500 East and 300 South, you’re in luck. Lisa, a cute and helpful bartender who assisted with some of the renovations and the bar launch, is now assisting in the creation of a fun atmosphere in the old building; she said Dick ’n’ Dixie’s is going for a “neighborhood bar without the bullshit” vibe. Case in point: the bar’s signature drink, Dickel Whisky in a Dixie cup. It doesn’t get more down-home and neighborly than that.

Scenester Siege is behind this event, so you know it will be packed and full of pretties at W Lounge (358 S. West Temple). Pick up some cheap pre-sale tix for $5 at FRESH.
