Lunching at Gracie's | Buzz Blog
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.

Lunching at Gracie's



The City Weekly bosses treated the staff to lunch at the brand-new Gracie's at 326 S. West Temple this afternoon--or at least we stuck Rizzi and Saltas with the check. Verdict: The grub is good, and the club is swank. Oh, and there is no "Gracie," Deno Dakis (ex-Port O' Call) just thought the name sounded cool. Gracie's is also the last private club in Utah, having snapped up the final license before the State finally does away with 'em in July. Random shots of lunching CW folk:
