A Whole New Whole Foods and more.

A Whole New Whole Foods
Whole Foods (wholefoods.com) is moving its Park City store, but there's a bit of a twist to what would otherwise be a standard relocation. On Wednesday, Oct. 18, the new store opens at 6598 N. Landmark Drive, just up the road from the old location in the Redstone Center. Part of that move includes the launch of a first for Whole Foods in Utah: a pub location inside the store. Silver Mine Taproom will offer a rotating tap of two dozen local and hard-to-find brews—including specials from Park City Brewery and Red Rock Brewing Co.—plus bottled beers, wine by the glass and made-to-order lunch and dinner options. For those who choose not to imbibe, there's the also-brand-new Ritual Chocolate Bar, with small-batch drinking chocolate plus a full-service coffee bar. Come to the grand opening beginning at 9 a.m. for live music, prizes and giveaways of reusable bags featuring an original design by a Park City artist.

Farmers Market Season Winds Down
If you've been enjoying the produce at the Downtown Farmers Market at Pioneer Park (350 W. 300 South), don't take it for granted. The 2017 season concludes Saturday, Oct. 21, so make it a point to visit before another long winter wait for the fresh stuff.

Chili at the 'Bird
The weather might be turning cooler, but there's nothing like a steaming bowl of chili to warm the body and soul—especially as you're getting back into the habit of heading up to local ski venues. Snowbird Resort (9385 S. Snowbird Center Drive, Little Cottonwood Canyon, snowbird.com) hosts a Chili Bird Showdown Oct. 21-22, noon-5 p.m. daily, as five of the resort's chefs put their recipes to the test. Attendees get a "people's choice" ballot along with their sampler of the five options, plus condiments and corn bread. Call 801-933-222 for prices.

Quote of the Week: "Next to jazz music, there's nothing that lifts the spirt and strengthens the soul more than a good bowl of chili." —Harry James
