We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

Remember the critical advice in the film The Graduate? PLASTICS!

Well, the folks at France's Yellow Jersey wine company got the message. They now bottle their wines in plastic bottles. I came across the first plastic bottle I'd ever seen last week at the Wines of Wyncoop store in Denver. 

The bottles are made from a plastic resin called Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) and are lightweight and shatterproof.

It might just be the perfect packaging for picnic wines, although I can't quite picture myself unscrewing a plastic bottle of Chateau Lafite.
