Salt Lake has become a place with expanding diversity. One of our greatest developments of the past few years has been the dining scene. We have so many great places to eat, there’s no excuse to eat at those TGI’s, olive groves, and other awful chain restaurants with over-priced fattening frozen dinners. To help you discover new places to enjoy, Dining Diversity was created by several independent restaurant.

From April 18-May 1, these fine restaurants have prepared special menus for you to get a great meals at a special fixed price. Lunch options for $10, and dinner options for $15 & $30. Come try something new, and then brag to your friends how much better your gourmet meal was than their platter of chicken fingers.

Around the SL,UT April 15

By HolySavior | Filed in slc blog

Lasers, proms, comedy, and a killer week of great local and touring music. That’s what’s happening around Salt Lake this week. Including Record Store Day, when we celebrate the men and women of independent music stores. Check out the activities for Record Store Day here.

Clark Planetarium always has something exciting going on, and now they have premiered their newest attraction. The music of Led Zeppelin accompanied in an original animation and laser show in the dome theater. I got a chance to preview this show, and it is incredible. Shows are nightly at 8pm & 9pm, with an extra 10pm show Thursday-Saturday. Tickets are $8 per person, and worth every penny.

Queer Prom is an incredible event for those 14-20 years old, who may not have been able to have the prom they wanted due to the uptight conservatives who make “the rules.” A night of dancing and celebration in a safe, affirming atmosphere where everyone can bring the date they want. It takes place at the Salt Lake Main Library (210 east 400 south) from 8pm-midnight, Saturday, April 16. Tickets are $10 at the door.

See funny-man, John Hilder, at Wiseguys Trolley Square Sunday, Apr 17. I’ve seen and worked with John a number of times, and he always provides the laughs. Show starts at 7:30pm, tickets only $5.

Tickets to see David Sedaris are nearly sold out. If you don’t know him, he is an incredibly bright and funny humorist, best-selling author, and radio personality. He’ll be at Kingsbury Hall Wednesday, April 20 at 7:30pm, and tickets start at $32.50.

Coming April 28th, a Quiz For a Cause Utah AIDS Foundation fundraiser. Come play an easy-going, pop-culture and random knowledge quiz to raise money for AIDS awareness and research. There will be prizes, including a cash prize for the winning team. $5 donation per player requested. The quiz takes place Thursday, April 28 at Lumpy’s Downtown. First question is at 8pm, but it’s recommended to arrive at 7:30pm to get the best table for your team of up to 6 players.

Record Store Day, SLC 2011

By HolySavior | Filed in Special events

If it wasn’t for the brave men and women of independent record stores, our musical world would be a lot less diverse. Even today, as the internet is able to bring us music, there is a need for these brick & mortar stores where we can discover new sounds, talk to people who love music, and often buy for less than iTunes.

This is why Record Store Day is so important. A day to promote the awareness of local shops on a mission to keep the dream alive, and show us why CDs are still cool. There are exclusive releases coming out this weekend, and you need these in your playlist.

If you’ve never been there, Slowtrain Music is the place for those who really love music. The staff is passionate and knowledgable. They will be celebrating an entire weekend of exclusive releases, live music, and street festivities. Friday night, they will be open until 9pm as part of the Salt Lake Gallery Stroll. They will be serving delicious Bohemian beer all weekend in the lounge. Of course, the main events are the great local bands playing Saturday:

    Birthquake – 11am
    Trappers – 12pm
    Paul Jacobsen – 1pm
    Ryan Tanner – 2pm
    American Shakes – 3pm
    Plastic Furs – 4pm
    Jay William Henderson – 5pm
    Desert Noises – 6pm
    Joshua James – 7pm

Graywhale Music will also be hosting live bands at most of their locations, as well as special releases, hot sales, and great benefits for Killer Whale members.

U of U Graywhale– KRCL Showcase (Noon-5p) Octet, Bronco, Holy Water Buffalo, Pablo Blaqk, Joshua Payne Orchestra & more.

Orem Graywhale– Utah County Locals Showcase (2-7p) Desert Noises, Moth & The Flame, Glowing Heads, Just A Face, In Dreaming, & Salt City Sound.

Taylorsville Graywhale– 97.5 The Blaze Rock Showcase (2-6p) Hour 13, Split Lid & more.

Ogden Graywhale– SLUG Metal Showcase (7p-Midnight) Oldtimer, Reviver, Beyond This Flesh, Loom & Breaux.

You need to visit your local record store this weekend, and discover a world of music beyond the corporate top-40.
