Utahns Against Hunger Fundraiser
Interested in a restaurant crawl for a good cause? Visit select downtown restaurants this week to raise money for Utahns Against Hunger, a local nonprofit dedicated to getting food to those in need. Several of Salt Lake's finest restaurants will feature specialty dishes or cocktails, with proceeds going to UAH. Copper Onion, Bourbon House, Caffé Molise and BTG Wine Bar are only a few of the participating restaurants. You can also donate directly to UAH at gofundme.com/utahns-against-hunger. The restaurant crawl ends Saturday, Sept. 1, but keep checking uah.org for more events and ways to help.

Thirst Drinks Opens on U Campus
Starting a business while taking a full load of classes isn't the sort of thing every University of Utah student can pull off—let alone become successful in the process. That's not the case with Ethan Cisneros and Thirst Drinks (thirstdrinks.com), which recently opened its third location in the Peterson Heritage Center (151 S. Connor St.) on the University of Utah campus. Thirst offers a wide variety of mixed sodas, along with sweet treats like cookies and scotcharoos. Not only is Thirst providing university students with enough fizzy drinks and sugary snacks to get them through their higher education, but its presence has encouraged the U to promote student entrepreneurship.

Utah Valley Food Fest
Our neighbors to the south are celebrating Utah County's burgeoning restaurant culture with the Utah Valley Food Fest on Saturday, Sept. 1. The lineup includes food trucks, restaurants and caterers, and promises to be a tasty crash course in what Happy Valley has to offer. The event is scheduled to take place from 1 to 9 p.m. at the UCCU Center (800 W. University Parkway, Orem), on the Utah Valley University campus. Tickets are $15 at the door, but can be purchased for $10 in advance via SmithsTix.

Quote of the Week: "In this country that grows more food than any other nation on this Earth, it is unthinkable that any child should go hungry."
