Goodbye to Broiler
After more than 30 years—it opened in March 1983—the Market Street Broiler on 1300 East (MarketStreetGrill.com) has closed and the property is for sale. This is especially a bummer since the upstairs dining room of the broiler was recently overhauled and featured the only bar on the east side of town where you could get a cocktail without ordering food. Co-founder and Gastronomy, Inc. principal Tom Guinney said, “We express our thanks to all our customers and our neighbors for their support over the years and we invite them to dine with us at other locations.” Gastronomy is working on re-assigning displaced employees.

Sweet Revenge
Throughout April, Squatters (Squatters.com) and Wasatch brewpubs (250 Main, Park City, 435-649-0900, WasatchBeers.com) are raising money to help fight hunger with their Guilt Free desserts, and taking “sweet revenge on hunger.” All the proceeds from each $5 Guilt Free dessert purchased at the brewpubs will be donated to Utahns Against Hunger, Hildegarde’s Food Pantry and the Christian Center. It’s a way to have your cake or cookie and help feed someone else, too.

Brews & Tutus
On Thursday, April 10 at Capitol Theatre (50 W. 200 South, 801-355-2787), Ballet West will host Beer & Ballet, a world premiere rehearsal of The Rite of Spring. The evening will feature craft beers from Epic Brewing, along with appetizers from The Annex, plus the ballet performance. Tickets are $50 per person and can be purchased at BalletWest.org.

Ogden Eats
