We need your help.

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.

I Can't Believe There's No Buttars



The gays will be celebrating the retirement of hated homophobe Sen. Chris Buttars this Friday -- and what better way to commemorate the butt-end of Buttars' bitter reign than with butterscotch-schnapps-based beverages?---

According to a Facebook event page created by Dennis Rowley[1], the "(Fuck) Buttars Retirement Party" will take place at the Trapp, 102 S. 600 West, starting at 8:30 p.m., featuring a slew of drink specials incorporating DeKuyper© Buttershots liqueur:

  • $1 Buttershots shots
  • $2 butterfuckers (Buttershots, vodka)
  • $3 cocksuckers[2] (Buttershots, Irish cream)
  • $4 duckturds[3] (Buttershots, Irish cream, vodka)
  • $4 jolly homos (Buttershots, Captain Morgan spiced rum)

Also, there are dollar-drafts on offer. Seems a perfect time to enjoy drink specials while we may, since, come July 1, they'll be illegal[4] thanks to Sen. John Valentine's anti-booze bill. Believe me, we gays know how to party! Sounds like a fun time to me.


[1] To clarify, that's "Leather Dennis," not the other Dennis.

[2] Our heterosexual friends may recognize this delicious shot by the nom de boisson "copper camel."

[3] Basically a "butterfucker" plus a "cocksucker," but WTF? Why "duckturds"?
