We are in the heart — and heat — of the summer, folks. But a little sunshine and a lotta warmth never stopped anyone in Utah from having a little fun. (Especially those of us who don’t like winter… wink, wink, nudge, nudge.)
There is plenty going on in Utah these days and even the mountains have come back alive (especially since it’s not too hot up there). Here are just a few of the Utah events happening in the next few weeks:
Hops on the Hill at Stein Eriksen :: Every Tuesday in August
If your Tuesdays are feeling a little bland (and seriously, whose aren’t?), head up to Stein Eriksen Lodge at Deer Valley for Hops on the Hill, the beer pairing dinner on their deck with the breathtaking view. Then stick around for the free outdoor concert while the sun sets. The featured beer and band change every week. Hops is $35 or $40 at the door. The line up is here.
The Kimball Arts Festival :: August 1-3
Park City’s arts festival showcases artists from around the country. Like the Utah Arts Festival, the Kimball Arts Festival has music in addition to visual art. The surrounding restaurants also jump in on the fun with tons of specials, some even offering 2-for-1 deals (see all dining discounts here).
Wicked on Broadway & Wicked Cocktails at Bambara :: Now til August 24
The sensational Broadway hit Wicked tells the story you haven’t heard about the Wizard of Oz and it’s playing at the Capitol Theater in Salt Lake City til August 24. I may be a die-hard opera lover, but even I fell for the catchy tunes and clever story. Go for pre-show dinner and Wicked-themed cocktails across the street at Bambara. Try the Flying Monkey with Absolute Vanilla, coffee liqueur and espresso.
