New Yorker Closes
After 40 years as one of downtown Salt Lake's most preeminent purveyors of steaks served with a generous helping of old-school aplomb, the New Yorker Restaurant has closed its doors. During its time on the fine-dining scene, it became one of the pillars of Gastronomy, Inc., which still operates Market Street Grill and the Oyster Bar. Although details are sparse, the ever-changing food scene and reports of a potential hepatitis A outbreak, according to the Salt Lake County Health Department, might have factored into the decision to close. I was by no means a regular, but my few visits made me want to get some friends together, throw on some crisp suits, and spend an evening there pretending we were living in an episode of Mad Men.

Hruska's Hogwarts Halloween
Entering its third year of merging the wizarding world of Harry Potter with the magic within each and every kolache, the fantastic beasts at Hruska's Provo (434 W. Center St., hruskaskolaches.com) host their Hogwarts Halloween party on Saturday, Oct. 27. The local bakers tend to go all out with their annual Halloween celebration—this year, the docket includes Harry Potter-themed kolache flavors, butterbeer, street magic and a live, bite-your-face-if-you-get-too-close owl. The party lasts from 9 a.m. to noon, and their wizard-themed kolaches are available while supplies last. Costumes are welcome—nay, encouraged!—and entry is free.

Beer, Bourbon and BBQ
If the sorting hat has placed you in the house of booze and smoked meats, then you'll definitely want to check out the Beer, Bourbon and BBQ event at The Gateway (400 W. 100 South, shopthegateway.com) on Saturday, Oct. 27. As it's only four days from All Hallow's Eve, expect the spook season to influence activities, including costume contests. While the event itself is free, attendees can purchase barbecue samples from The Salty Pineapple, T's Grill, Bandera Brisket and drinks from Dented Brick Distillery, Shades of Pale and Proper Brewing. Festivities start at 4 p.m. and last until 10 p.m., accompanied by live music from DJs from U92. Nothing like some locally made spirits to get you and yours into the Halloween spirit.

Quote of the Week: "Have a biscuit, Potter."

–J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
