For those seeking an alternative to Utah's traditional Mormon holiday, there are several "Pie and Beer Day" celebrations taking place in the Salt Lake area on Sunday July 24.

This unique food and beverage pairing — a silly twist on the words Pioneer Day — is a recent trend that pokes fun at the predominant culture a bit, but it gives "gentiles," as non-Mormons were once called, a reason to feel good about a day that often has little meaning for them.
