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

Glad You Asked: Your Weekend To-Dos



Dear GYA, I just wanna say I sincerely apologize for those Obama comments I made the other day. I'll tell you like I told those secret service guys. I was simply using what's referred to in the literary world as a matador or minotaur -- whatever. --- You know, it's when you say something that actually means something else. Anyways, I got a lot of  time on my hands now that all my shows got canceled -- anything good this weekend? - Ted Nugent 

Ted, I know what you mean. I use metaphors all the time. For example, if I say something like, "We need to chop heads off in November," what I mean is, "Let's grab some beers after work." Well, there's a ton of stuff going on this weekend so you couldn't have had all your shows canceled at a better time.
