  Brighton Ski Resort up Big Cottonwood Canyon is one of my favorites.  My youngest son and I started the year off hitting the slopes.  I of course literally hit the slopes, and often.  I’m not a very good skier.  My son however being a hockey player picked it up right away, and ended up spending most of the day waiting for his old man to either...

Cueva Carvajal

Cueva Carvajal

Oct 31, 2015

Cueva Carvajal was easily one of the highlights of my Mexico trip.  To eat here though, we had to take a 2 hour airplane trip north to Monterrey, one of the 3 biggest cities in Mexico. (along with D.F, and Guadalajara)  Monterrey was a literal breath of fresh air, and reminded me a lot about Utah actually.  The city has a mountain range that runs along side of...

Gracie’s Gastropub in downtown Salt Lake City.  Probably a bit more on the “pub” side than the “gastro” side.  Gracie’s has plenty of parking, and nice outdoor seating options as well as indoor.  This is a 21 and older only gastropub, so leave your kiddies at home.  There were a few pluses and minuses to go over, so here are...

  Even though I’ve nearing 200 reviews in the Salt Lake Valley, I still feel very much like a Draper novice.  Recently my cousins attended a wedding reception in the area and asked me for some dinner recommendations.  I really had to scratch my head with this one, and to be honest, it bothered me.  One of my favorite bakeries is in the area with Bake...

Bakersfield

Bakersfield

  Night number 2 of my Indianapolis trip, which also just so happened to fall on Monday Night when the Colts were playing the Giants.  It was either Kilroy’s or Bakersfield for dinner.  Bakersfield was the closest to our conference and hotel and thus won out.  Bakersfield was cool, hip little joint specializing in drinks and tacos.  I of course like...

  The quality of my photos is the only thing that sucked about my visit to High West last month.  I definitely look forward to whipping out my iPhone 6 Plus and taking better pictures going forward!  Yay!  Picture quality aside, High West is up near historic Main Street in Park City, and well designed, comfortable gastropub with excellent food and...

I asked around on Facebook before our trip down to Las Vegas where the family friendly attractions or places to go were.  One cool spot a bit further South on Las Vegas Blvd. is Town Center.  Town Center is a huge outdoor shopping center with a kids play area in the middle filled with play houses, sprinklers, and even a cool labyrinth for the kids to play in....

West Valley Billiards

West Valley Billiards

So this next place is a bit of a dive, it’s the West Valley Billiards pool hall in West Valley City!  I first heard about this place years ago on the radio.  One of the local stations was having a show based on what the listeners thought the best burger in Salt Lake was.  One particular caller talked about WVB and their whopper, so I went and tried it....

Oct 28, 2013

Yet another review coming your way from the old Granite Furniture district in Sugarhouse.  The old building gave way, but spawned forth tons of new eating establishments.  One of the newest ones opened their doors recently, The Annex by Epic Brewery.  I’m about as far as an expert at rating bars as they come, but I’ll certainly give you my take on...

Bohemian Brewery & Grill

Bohemian Brewery & Grill

Oct 3, 2013

Where does a food blogger go for his birthday?  I chose Bohemian Brewery & Grill for  dinner.  It had to be a place that I had not been too, but that I felt was going to be good food.  It also had to be a place that could accommodate large groups, and an atmosphere where I could bring my kids too.  I was pleased the find that Bohemian Brewery does just fine...
