Free Italy Trip
For all things Italy—minus the airfare to get there—mark your calendars for Saturday-Sunday, Sept. 17-18. That's when the second annual Festa Italiana SLC will be held at The Gateway (18 N. Rio Grande St.). The free festival begins at noon each day, and will feature live Italian entertainment, including the amazing Marco Calliari and the Joe Muscolino Band, along with Italian food, beer and wine, arts and crafts, bocce ball, an Italian car show, historical displays, a spaghetti-eating contest and much more. The complete list of food purveyors is too long to include here, but among the providers are Caputo's, Per Noi, Cannella's, Sole Mio, Sicilia Mia, Fratelli Tasso Pizzeria, Caffe Torino, Sweetaly Gelato and Ti Amo Pizzeria. For a complete list of events, activities, participants, schedules and such, visit FestaItalianaSLC.com.

Spitz and Utes
University of Utah Utes alert: Spitz—home of the döner kebab—will be flying crimson colors and airing all of the Utes football games at local locations, beginning with the contest on Thursday, Sept. 1, when the U of U takes on Southern Utah. This is a win-win for football fans and lovers of Spitz' sandwiches, wraps, salads, bowls and baskets—not to mention boozy beverages, which you can't get at Rice-Eccles Stadium. Go Utes!

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
High West Distillery in Wanship is now offering Sunday brunch from 10:45 a.m.-2:30 p.m. with a buffet featuring items such as brisket eggs Benedict, whiskey-soaked French toast, continental fare, coffee and juices, plus house whiskeys, cocktails, mimosas, whiskey lemonade, bloody marys and more. High West is a 30,000-square-foot working distillery and restaurant featuring gorgeous views of the Wasatch Range and Blue Sky Ranch's 3,500-acre working cattle ranch. It's the perfect place to escape the heat and the city on a Sunday—or any time, for that matter. To learn more about the distillery and to make reservations, visit HighWest.com.

Quote of the week: "The trouble with eating Italian food is that, five or six days later, you're hungry again."
