Live Fun @ Feldman's
For a while now, Feldman's Deli (2005 E. 2700 South, 801-906-0369, FeldmansDeli.com) has been the go-to spot for great Jewish-style deli fare. But did you know it's also an entertainment venue? It began with Michael Feldman hosting occasional evenings called Old Jews Telling Jokes. Now, seats for those shows are some of the hottest tickets in town. Feldman's Deli also regularly features live music. Upcoming shows include comedian Keith Barany on Nov. 13, The KlezBros (traditional Jewish, European and Gypsy music) on Nov. 22, Paul Rasmussen and Mark Jardine (guitar & fiddle) on Dec. 6, and the Jai Tai Jazz Trio on Dec. 13. Covers for the shows are $5 to $10.
Get Yer Yurt On
The Yurt at Solitude (12000 East Big Cottonwood Canyon, Solitude, SkiSolitude.com) is now taking reservations for the 2014-15 ski season. The yurt is a truly unique dining experience that begins with a 20-minute snowshoe or cross-country ski tour and ends with dinner and drinks at a Mongolian-style yurt. The yurt is open for dinner Tuesday through Sunday for guests ages 13 and up, and includes a five-course menu created by award-winning chefs Lesli Sommerdorf, Julie Paine, Patrick Yan and Franck Peissel. To book your yurt dining adventure, phone 801-536-5765.
