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, 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.

How Awkward? Very




If you haven't yet checked out City Weekly contributor Brian Staker's podcast The Awkward Hour, pop your listening cherry tonight when guest Mariah Mellus, marketing and community development for the Salt Lake Video Center, joins him in the "studio" for one hell of an awkward and informative discussion centered on "What's On Your Plate?" a documentary in which two students/sisters investigate where our food comes from, what's in it and what it's doing to us. Says Staker, "It happens to be screening at Fort Douglas the same time as my show. How awkward is that?"

Hilarity and fascinating factoids will ensue.
