The new year is off and running, and this savior is always on the hunt for all the best events, ideas, and entertainment in our beloved Salt Lake, UT (the SL,UT). Below are some great musical acts you should see, ideas to keep warm & happy, and tips on great drinks.


Music – Chill out Friday night at The Bayou (645s State) while listening to The Daniel Day Trio. Saturday, head up to Park City to see Crash Test Dummies in what is sure to be an amazing show at The Eccles Center, 7:30pm (tickets from $18). Tuesday, Dashboard Confessional, Lady Danville, and Chris Conley are at In The Venue (7pm $28). Thursday, two great bands at Piper Down: at 9pm General Harrison, followed by Fauna. Next Saturday, Guster is at In The Venue (8pm $30).

Get off the couch – It’s easy to fall into your routine after a hard day of work, and head straight for the couch. But you need to smile, you need to move, socialize, and have fun. Here’s an idea: dance! Even if you’ve never danced before, here’s your chance to learn something new and it’s guaranteed the rush of adrenaline will put you in a cheerful mood. Samba Fogo has dance classes every Thursday night at 6:30pm for only $12 for a drop-in. It’s a workout, a way to meet new people, learn something new, and warm you up on a cold day. If you’re into percussion, take their beginners Brazillian drum class Saturdays at 12:30pm. Only $8, instruments provided. Classes are at 2191 south 300 west.


Coffee – Everyone should understand the beautiful complexities of quality coffee. caffe d’bolla is hosting a Coffee Tasting Class on Thursday, January 20, 7pm.
