American Craft Beer Week

Celebrate Utah's craft brewers by getting your drink on. If you want to get straight to the beer, the pub crawl is for you. But if you like to ease into things, you might check out the Asana yoga, ales and brunch outing.

"Alien: Covenant"

A movie is the way to go if you're looking for something more laid-back. Well, maybe not this movie, which returns to the primal terror of the 1979 original. Just don't spill your popcorn.


Living Traditions Festival

Let's be honest: It's all about the food. From Serbian dishes to your classic Italian fare, you really can't go wrong here. But don't forget to soak in all the internal culture, including music and dance.

"Twin Peaks"

It's been 26 years since the last season aired, and as you might suspect, the show is clouded in mystery. But if you're curious about what's happening in Twin Peaks two decade later, you might find some answers.

We Olive

Feast at three new restaurants

The weekend is the perfect time to explore new eateries. And we've got three new ones for you to try, including a rather eclectic fusion joint and a shop that's an ode to the olive.


"Don Giovanni"

If the movie noir feel of this Utah Opera production isn't enough to get you in the door, maybe the surprise twist at the end will. I mean, we all know how it ends, right? Right?!? Think again. This weekend is your last chance to see it.

Greyhound Gathering

With events like "Blur of Fur" and "Yappy Hour," this festival caught our eye immediately. It's a four-day affair, so there's plenty of time to get your squee on.

Jessica Hernandez

If you saw Hernandez perform here two years ago, her look and sound might seem a little different this time around. And that's intentional.

National Choreographic Festival

This new festival is on pointe — literally. The event, hosted by and featuring Ballet West, includes four dance companies that have never toured before — so this is a rare opportunity to see them outside their hometowns (and save on some travel money).

Hike of the week: Babylon Arch - Red Cliff Desert Reserve

Hike Babylon Arch — Red Cliffs Desert Reserve

This might be a more obvious one, but who doesn't love Utah's arches? Although it's a natural beauty, the real thrill of the hike is the journey there — unless you burn easily. So bring lots of sunscreen and a hat!
