Happy Good Friday! Unlike the historical day, this is a good day, because I’m in Salt Lake City and there is always something fun and affordable to do. Here’s a taste of the great events happening around SLC this week.

Saturday, head to The Red Door for a cool 80s Pop-Art Party. Put on your pegged pants and band buttons, it’s time to celebrate! The incredible Daniel Day Trio will be performing. Cover is only $4, the party is from 9pm – 1am.

For laughs, head to Mo’s Neighborhood Grill to see David Ackerman. He’s one of comedy’s rising stars, and you can see him with locals Christopher Stephenson and Troy Taylor for only $5 at the door. Show starts at 9pm.

Easter Sunday isn’t just for the kids, head to The Garage for a Easter party with great brunch food, drinks, and music. It’s Mr. Jesse Walker’s Easter Funday ‘BUNNY HOP’ from 11am-5pm. Chef Joe DiMeo is up to some great tastes at this new SLC hotspot, at 1199 North Beck Street. Huge patio, and very cozy atmosphere. No cover charge.

Two great free movies this week at Brewvies. Monday is The Big Lebowski at 9:30pm, and Wednesday it’s The Goonies at 8pm. Come out to enjoy great food, drinks, and support Utah’s only cinema pub. Arrive early, as seating is limited. You should spend the evening here anyways, as they have a great atmosphere for dining, and pool tables to enjoy before and after the film.

The Utah AIDS Foundation has teamed up with Geeks Who Drink to host a Quiz for a Cause. It’s a laid-back, fun & humorous pub quiz for prizes. Including, a big cash prize for the winning team. We’ll have prizes from Wasatch Roller Derby, Yelp, and more. Up to 6 people per team, only a $5 donation per player to qualify for the big cash prize. It’s all random, pop-culture, music, and entertainment questions, so don’t worry about being “geek” enough to win. It’s a great time, a great cause, and great drink specials like $3 wells, $2 PBR tallboys, and more. Thursday, April 28 at 8pm. Arrive early for best tables.
