Glad You Asked: Falcons, Islanders and Elvis



Dear GYA, I am sooo sick of eating Subway. It's not that I don't like the sandwiches, they're great. It's just that every time I eat one, I have to hold up a random pair of gigantic pants. This contract is really annoying.--- Anyways, anything happening today that doesn't require me to carry around extra pants? - Jared Fogle

Jared, I do feel bad for you. But I know you eat there for free. Do you have any idea how many restaurants I would love to eat for free at, so long as I held up some pants? All of them! Lucky for you, there are plenty of pants-free events happening today:  

As part of the Mondays in the Park Concert Series, check out the music and dancing of Tagoloa today at Liberty Park. Party with Polynesian dancers and musicians and learn all about island culture at this family-centered event. There will also be slam poetry from local poet Gray. The party starts at 7 p.m. 

In Orem, the music of the King is alive and well. Head to the Scera Shell Outdoor Theater tonight for the musical comedy All Shook Up. Featuring original songs by Elvis Presley, this jukebox musical follows a small-town girl who is looking for the motorcycle-ridin' man of her dreams. The show starts at 8 p.m.  

If you're into eagles, falcons and even pigeons, you're gonna want to head to the Tracy Aviary today for the $5 after 5 p.m. deal. Every Monday through August, Tracy Aviary is offering this sweet deal. So if you've never been, there's no better time to check out one of SLC's coolest attractions. 

Other worthwhile events today:

- The Lunch Bunch Concert Series will be kicking off at noon today at the Gallivan Center.

- Tonight is Pub Quiz Night at the Republican, starting at 9:30 p.m.  

- REI of Salt Lake will be holding a Bike Commuting Seminar tonight at 7 p.m.
