Poker at Lumpy’s: Texas Hold ’Em, Too
Lumpy’s is a great sports bar, and we’re not talking about just the downtown Pierpont location—the original Highland Drive (and 3000 South) spot is still active, too. Utah Poker Tour (UtahPokerTour.com) hosts Texas Hold ’Em tourneys every Monday and Wednesday at the old-school Lumpy’s from 8 p.m. till close, so you can get your sports and poker in one place, finally!

Dead Clubs Rising: Bar-X to Reopen
A sad yet jovial crowd met last month to mourn the passing of Bar-X (155 E. 200 South), but fans of the location will have no reason to cry now. Bar-X Inn is no more, but Bar-X is rising from the ashes, sans the “Inn.” A new group of owners is betting big that they can obtain a full liquor license, and anticipate opening in October with a minor face-lift on the old space, and promises of more enhancements to come. Note to new owners: Don’t get rid of too many of those smile lines/wrinkles or the old barflies will not attend the rebirth.

Curious? Club Try-Angles
Like most great neighborhood bars in bigger cities, Try-Angles (251 W. 900 South) is close enough to the high-rises of downtown to feel like a city bar, yet is still situated in a residential district. Also close to TRAX, this bar features several different themed nights for its lesbian, gay and straight patrons. Sundays feature barbecues on the patio, Mondays feature concert videos from the likes of Cher, and Tuesdays offer ballroom dance lessons for Salt Lake City’s “sultry queers.” Fridays and Saturdays feature local club DJs Dennis and BoyToy spinning dance music to groove to. Try this bar if you’ve never been and are one of the open-minded set.
