Beyond Essentials: Memorial Day Weekend edition



Can we possibly contain everything there is to do in Salt Lake City on a holiday weekend within the pages of our print publication? Let's find out. ---

CONduit: The 21st annual festival of science-fiction/fantasy/gaming/art/comics/anime and general geek-culture extravaganza kicks off today through Sunday at the Radisson Salt Lake City downtown. As Saturday Night Live's Stefon might say, "This place has everything:" panel discussions, dealer tables, costume contests, art exhibitions, special guest authors, movie screenings and much more. Proudly wear your special genre-specific attire and join your kindred spirits. Visit the Website to find local retailers offering $5 discount vouchers for admission.

Jay Mohr: The actor/comedian (Jerry Maguire, Saturday Night Live) kicked off a three-night stand at Wiseguys West Valley City last night, and continues with two shows Friday and Saturday.

BigM Weekend: Miller Motorsports Park hosts a weekend of Memorial Day fun and excitement today through Monday. Highlights include SBK Superbike FIM World Championship; stunt driving; military events and parades, including F16 flyover; children's activities; and special concerts Saturday (Dierks Bentley with Sawyer Brown) and Sunday (Credence Clearwater Revisited with Blue Oyster Cult). Individual day and full weekend tickets are still available.
