Glad You Asked: Pickwick, March Madness and Snowflake Festival | 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

Glad You Asked: Pickwick, March Madness and Snowflake Festival



Dear GYA, It seems like once a week, there's news of a sinkhole devouring someone. I'll be the first to admit that I'm deathly afraid of many things -- rabid koalas, Ebola and, if the circumstances are just right, rabid koalas wielding Ebola. Now, it seems I  need to add to my list the probability of being sucked into a damned sinkhole. Anything sinkhole-free happening tonight? - Jessica Hornboggle, Park City---

Jessica, These are all things you should be deathly afraid of. In fact, any one of these scenarios is probable in Utah. But, here are a few options for today that should be safe:
