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.

Glad You Asked: Weekend To-Dos



Dear GYA, What is it about a meaty 6-inch Subway Sandwich that always seems to fill me up? Seriously, those sandwich artists  know what they're doing. You'd think it wouldn't be as satisfying as a 12-inch sandwich, but I'm telling you --somehow, someway, that average-looking sub does the job every time. Anything as happening this weekend as exhilarating as a 6-inch hoagie? - L. Bone Arena, Lehi  ---

L., As they say, "Never judge a book by it' cover." A well-balanced, well-constructed 6-inch sub can so do the job every time; you just have to know what to do with it. Here are some options for this weekend that are also surprisingly satisfying. Let's start with Friday's events
