Beer & Ballet
Ballet West is gearing up for another round of Beer & Ballet at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center (138 W. 300 South). On Saturday, Sept. 10, from 6-9:30 p.m., audience members can get a special sneak preview of Ballet West's Works from Within program, as well as craft beers from Epic Brewing and light appetizers. The ticket price—$50 in advance or $60 at the door—includes three free drinks, and non-alcoholic beverages will also be available. To purchase advance tickets, visit BalletWest.org or call 801-869-6938.

Tuesday Harvest Market
The seventh season of the Tuesday Harvest Farmers Market is in full swing, happening every Tuesday through Oct. 18, from 4 p.m.-dusk at the Gallivan Center (239 S. Main). A bit more laid-back than the Saturday Downtown Farmers Market, it typically features about 20 vendors and fewer attendees than on weekends, making shopping and parking a little more convenient. "The Tuesday Market offers farmers an additional opportunity to connect with local shoppers during a time of the year when farms are producing at their height," market manager Alison Einerson says. It's "the perfect way for both residents and commuters to pick up farm-fresh produce and locally produced food before heading home." For additional details, visit SLCFarmersMarket.org.

Bombs Away
This year's Park City Area Restaurant Association's Summer Cocktail Contest was won by the Silver Star Café (1825 Three Kings Drive, Park City, 435-655-3456, TheSilverStarCafe.com) with their "LaBounty bourbon ice bomb"—a port- and bourbon-based cocktail created by mixologist Jeff LaBounty. The drink blew away the competition, receiving an average 10 out of 10 rating from 265 voters who cast ballots online. "Jeff's cocktail is really just so much fun," café owner Lisa Ward says in a press release. "It's whimsical, it's creative, it's surprising and it's totally different than just about anything you've seen." All Cocktail Contest entries and recipes can be found on the PCARA website at ParkCityRestaurants.com.

Quote of the week: "When one has tasted watermelons, one knows what angels eat. It was not a Southern watermelon that Eve took; we know it because she repented."
