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: Weekend Edition



Dear GYA, Did you hear that McDonald's is now serving fish McBites on their menu? This is great news because I'm really sick and tired of all these liberal scientists saying the oceans are running out of fish-based slurry cubes. If that were the case, we wouldn't be eating these babies for 99 cents a pop. It's called economics, idiots. Anything happening this weekend after I slap another scientist with McFacts? - Jimmy Beledouchi, Draper---
