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. DONATE

i'm hatin' it



When The Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde comes to Salt Lake City tomorrow, she'll have more on her mind than just rocking Red Butte Gardens. --- On Monday, August 24, Hynde will also be rocking the McDonald's at 242 S. 700 East. 

A longtime spokeperson for PETA, Hynde (a vegan) will debut her "i'm hatin' it" parody of the popular McDonald's ad as she launches a national campaign against the hamburger chain's alleged cruel methods of slaughtering chickens.

Look for a smackdown with Ronald McDonald, Unhappy meals for kids, mangled plastic chickens and "blood" filled packets urging McDonald's to "Ketchup with the times." "McDonald's means McCruelty as far as I'm concerned," says Hynde.

Gore! Clowns! Blood! Rock n' roll! What more could you ask for during a Monday lunch?

12 noon Monday at McDonald's. I'd recommend avoiding the McChicken sandwich.
