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.

Dear GYA: Not gonna lie, I’m kind of bummed. I just got released from the Colts, ma neck hurts, ma DirecTV don’t work and ma dumbass little brother just won the Super Bowl. Anything I can do today to feel better? –Peyton M., Motel 6, State St.---

Peyton, I’m really sorry to hear about your DirecTV. What a horrible loss. As for today, why not focus your stress through a paintbrush? At 1 p.m. over at The Leonardo, you can help Pop artist Jann Haworth create a large-scale mural that celebrates women scientists, artists, writers, musicians, dancers, etc. The cost is only $100 … and no art experience is necessary.

Then this evening, how about checking out Disney on Ice: Toy Story 3 over at the Energy Solutions Arena? It’s the story of what happens to old, broken, discarded crap that no one wants anymore. I think you’ll get a lot out of this, plus it’s on ice! The show starts at 7 p.m. and tickets range from $13-$52.

If Disney ain’t your thing, then head over to The State Room at 8 p.m. for the final night of Hot Buttered Rum and Cornmeal. But don’t be confused; it’s actually two folk/jam bands that have food-related names. A $20 cover promises lots of energetic yeehawn', corn shuckn’ and acoustic singalongs. This will be right up your alley.

Other things you could do today while wearing a neck brace:

- C2U Karaoke @ Cheers to You in Midvale

- Joshua Luther: Meaning, art exhibit over @ the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art

- Ontario Reign vs. Utah Grizzlies hockey @ The Maverik Center
