What's your favorite city district to visit? 

Think LoDo in Denver, or Gaslamp in San Diego—what’s your favorite city district for visiting?

James Burnitt: Definitely the Museums Quartier in Vienna, Austria. Drinks, food, people watching, music at night— and museums (of course)!

Brandon Burt: Unfortunately, all the good districts have been gentrified or redeveloped beyond recognition … SoMa in San Francisco, Capitol Hill in Seattle, Boystown in Chicago—oh, where have all the leather bars gone? On the other hand, Taksim in Istanbul has a rather beguiling hammam …

Scott Renshaw: Too many San Francisco neighborhoods to mention: Haight-Ashbury, Chinatown, the Panhandle, SoMa. The only thing not to love about that city is the cost of living there.

Susan Kruithof: Crescent Street area in Montreal. More for us English-speaking folks. Great pubs, and in the summer, tons of open-air restaurants in the summer. Amazing. Like being in Europe, I imagine, without traveling overseas.

Derek Jones: I have to say Boystown in Chicago. My boyfriend surprised me with a secret trip to Chicago and then proposed to me at a great restaurant there called The Home Bistro.

Ben Rosch: I have always enjoyed the Riverwalk in San Antonio Texas.

Jamie Gadette: Sixth Street and its surrounding blocks in Austin. Live-music-lover’s paradise.

Matt Engle: Main Street, of course! Especially between 200 South and 300 south. It’s where all my friends hang out.

    There is something about a self-taught artist who has developed the ability to look at the world through an artist's eyes. Peruvian-born Enrique Vera spent most of his life in the Nueva Leon region of northeast Mexico, and has developed an ability to capture the history, geography and culture of the region with his photography. Mestizo Gallery, in conjunction with local nonprofit organization Artes de Mexico en Utah, will present an exhibition of Vera's photography to close out its 2014 calendar.
