No Place Like Homies
The former Wingers location at 300 South and State Street has re-opened as Homies Burgers & Shakes (329 S. State, 801-363-1977)—and with a designation like that, you get a pretty good sense for what you'll find. The menu features satisfying diner fare like fish-and-chips, BLT sandwiches, 1/3-pound burgers and chicken strips, plus teriyaki bowls and salads. Top it off with a 12-ounce shake that comes with one complimentary topping. The outdoor patio could make it a particularly attractive summer spot for a rib-sticking downtown lunch. Check out the menu at homiesrestaurant.com

Kids' Summer Cooking Class
With school out, parents are often looking for ways to keep kids from developing a case of the "I'm bored"s. So as long as you're looking for interesting activities to occupy their summer days, consider giving them a skill that can help around the house. Pleasant Grove's Parks & Recreation Department offers three-session classes—Monday, Tuesday and Thursday in a single week—teaching young would-be chefs ages 5-16 how to prepare a couple of dishes. For the week of June 26, for example, students can emerge with the ability to make cinnamon French toast bites and quiche toast. Some special requirements apply for younger children; fees are $9 per class for Pleasant Grove residents and $10 for non-residents. Call 801-785-6172 or register online at rec.plgrove.org.

Taste South African Wines
Kids aren't the only ones who can learn things this summer. Wine educator Sheral Schowe leads a tasting focusing on South African Wines and Cheeses of France at Harmons City Creek (135 E. 100 South) on June 24 at 6:30 p.m. Learn the 400-year history of winemaking in South Africa, plus five wine-and-cheese pairings, for $65 per person. Register at harmonsgrocery.com/classes.
