In The Loop: 9/26/09. Squatting Fashionable Yorick, In Skates!



Hello twenty-year beer enthusiasts. Busy week for the start of fall. First off, let's take a look at the 337 Memorial Wall.

--- Next up on the list, hey look, its a party!

Made my way over on Wednesday night to Squatters for their 20th Anniversary celebration, hosted by Radio From Hell with beer a flowing and music by the Daniel Day Trio. Celebrating two decades worth of starting their brew pub, bringing out dozens of flavors, and being a force for locally made beers here in Utah. As to why the radio group was a part of the festivities... “They said 'We're having an anniversary and you were the first people who ever did radio ads for us.' It was Squatters idea to have us and we threw in some ideas with them.” said Bill Allred. “Its a great party with a lot of people, nice entertainment and good beer, everybody seems to be having a good time.” The night was topped off with a toast from Allred, with rebuttal from the owners who took much applause from just the mention of their different beers. You can check out photos from the event over here. Good party!

Touching on Thursday's posting, Fashion Stroll was a major event last night. Drawing in one of the biggest crowds Broadway has ever had, and probably the most the Stroll itself has had to date. Several local designers from across the city and beyond came in to show off their goods, Style Wars brought in some new looks and turned a few heads. This one also brought out a lot of the local media, who hopefully did the event justice and didn't just pander it off as "a gathering." There's more to discuss, but instead I'd rather just point you over to this gallery and show you what you missed out on if you didn't go.

Another stop this weekend was over to Poor Yorick Studios for their seasonal open house. A number of new artists have taken up residence while many favorites had newer displays. Including the one you see below of Chris Buttars, as he is before he wakes up and drinks the blood of the damned. Daytime was a little daunting an many of the spaces are usually open on the nightly showing, but still had a lot of work to admire from start to finish. As I write this they've closed up their two-day event, so if you didn't go check it out... sucks to be you. Catch them all again in the spring. Or enjoy the pictures I snapped for now over here at this gallery.

Plans for tonight, make your way over to The Salt Palace as the Salt City Derby Girls hold their championship game! Last year's defending champions Leave It To Cleavers pull up their aprons and skate head-on into the holy-rolling nunnery that is The Sisters Of No Mercy, who make their first championship appearance since the start of the league. The last time these two played the Cleavers sliced the sisters down to size. Will history repeat itself in form of Nunsense, or will divine intervention give the Sisters revenge and their first championship win? Make your way out tonight and find out!

As for the blog the next few weeks we'll have material from writer Jake Black, DJ and musician Ebay Jamil, a look into the web series Raising Kayn, along with a look at some poster art and looking at some fall festival material. A lot of things up in the air entering October so we'll see what happens.
