Glad You Asked: String Theory, Cusack & Dinos | 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. DONATE

Not sure what to do on a day like this? Well, you’re in the right spot. Glad You Asked is City Weekly’s daily, advice-dispensing, know-it-all events blog. It’s like Dear Abby, if she ever left her house and advised you to go somewhere other than counseling. We fear no level of boredom. Got a question about what to do today? Well, we're glad you asked...---

Dear GYA; Since today’s Leap Day, I’ve decided that I’m going to propose to my girlfriend. I figure this is pretty smart because we’ll only have to celebrate our anniversary every 4 years. I know, I know… I’m an effing genius! Do you have any suggestions for a decent date tonight? – Martin, Bowflex product tester, West Valley City

Martin, you are a genius. Your idea is revolutionary, and if you a have a newsletter I’d like to subscribe to it. As for your date tonight, I suggest sitting in on Brian Greene: The Nature of Things at Kingsbury Hall. He wrote the book Elegant Universe, and like you, he's ahead of his time. He probably won’t talk about leap years, but he will blow your date's mind to chunks with his ideas on String Theory.

After she’s all mesmerized with cosmic wonder, you should take your lady over to Do Dinosaurs Dream of Electric Sheep? It’s an art exhibit down at the Covey Center for the Arts (Provo) and it features renown artist Carolyn Nicita. She creates sculptures using math and chaos theory. I promise, after these two stops, your GF is bound to think your marriage material.

Or if you don’t want to drive all the way to Provo, you could cruise over to Brewvies for the free screening of High Fidelity. It’s one of 50 John Cusack movies where he plays a neurotic basket case who’s obsessed with his ex. It’s sort of a romantic comedy that dudes can tolerate while drinking beer.

Other worthwhile happenings:

-Funk house DJs, Boombox performing at The Complex.

-Jeremy Evans and the Utah Jazz are at home tonight to face off with the Houston Rockets.

-Acoustic folk master David Williams is performing over at Tin Angel Cafe.
