I’m recovering from St. Patrick’s Day, but still keeping a finger on the pulse of Salt Lake. Because no matter how hard we party, there’s always room for more things to do. Here’s a taste of what’s happening this coming week Around the SL,UT.

Every Saturday, from 10am-3pm, Caputo’s hosts a Locavore Market full of great food from Utah’s finest. Local cheese, meats, and more. Some of my favorite foods, all finer than heaven.

Love chocolate? Of course you do, and you will love it even more after learning more about it. Monday, March 21, Caputo’s is holding an introduction to fine chocolate class. Learn through taste what makes a great chocolate bar. It’s $25, and you should reserve your spot now by visiting Caputo’s Deli at 314 west 300 south, or call 801-531-8669.

A celebration to welcome spring, people from young to old will all be covered in colors while enjoying music, burning an effigy, and dancing around the Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple in Spanish Fork.
