FOOD TRUCK PARTY
Here is American fast food diversified. With a focus on sourcing local, ethical and seasonal ingredients, along with skillful preparation, the Komrades team creates "food for the people"—craft-made street eats featuring world flavors and international influences that are fresh, fast and affordable. It started with a German immigrant who was challenged by American fast food. Komrades now works from a one-of-a-kind red food trailer that you can't miss. If you're 21 and older, join them for their end-of-summer party "Kegs + Komrades." There's live music, too. The menu was designed with flexibility and consideration for common allergies and dietary restrictions, including vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. Average price is $10 a meal. Shades of Pale Taproom & Biergarden, 154 Utopia Ave., 760-305-3613, Friday, Sept. 9, 6-9 p.m., free to public, 21+, TheKomrades.com

UKELELE OPEN MIC PICNIC
Utah's first ukulele festival returns with its fifth annual Open Mic Picnic. Entrants are asked to perform one family friendly song (as kids will be attending this event) a maximum of four minutes in length. Original or cover songs are welcome.

Bring a picnic as well as a pop-up chair or blanket to sit in the shade. This year's open mic will be non-competitive and participants will be added to a drawing for ukuleles and other donated prizes. Heritage Park, 5381 W. 10400 North, Highland, 801-492-6284, Saturday, Aug. 27, 12:15 p.m., free, Bit.ly/2bHOBDb

ERASING LANDSCAPES
Many of the world's cultural heritage sites—from the Middle East to our very own state—face increasing threats from vandalism, theft and destruction. The Utah Museum of Fine Arts is exploring the destruction with a panel discussion on Erasing Landscapes: Looting and Destruction From Syria to Utah. UMFA's curator of antiquities Luke Kelly and two noted archeologists—Brad Parker from the University of Utah and Nate Thomas from the Bureau of Land Management—will speak and answer questions. This is one in a series called ARTLandish: Land Art, Landscape and the Environment. Salt Lake Public Library Auditorium, 210 E. 400 South, 801-581-7332, Thursday, Aug. 25, 7-9 p.m., free, UMFA.Utah.edu/Artlandish

    Vagina, masturbation, oral sex—expect to apologize if you use this kind of "vulgar" language in the presence of Utah legislators.

    OK, this is getting serious. Anti-Trump activists are calling for a General Strike. You know the drill—buy nothing, protest everywhere and generally give the president the middle finger.
