In The Loop: 12/10/16. Celebrating Good Times In Bitter Cold | 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

In The Loop: 12/10/16. Celebrating Good Times In Bitter Cold

Awesome events to check out from December 11-24.


Hello to all you people trying to keep from freezing this weekend in our oddly hexagon-shaped state. I've lived in Utah my entire life, and few years do I get so cold that I wish I were living elsewhere. It isn't just cold; it's bitter, the kind of cold that feels like someone put a nail in your arm and hammered it to the bone. I'd like to throw a personal thank you to all the Best Of Utah winners who came out to the party we threw at Clark Planetarium last week. It was quite fun chatting with people and watching the inebriated play with tornado machines. As you're reading this, I'm probably in Provo tonight for Velour's BOTB Finals, which we'll talk about on Monday. In the meantime, here's two weeks worth of cool events for you to check out, as well as a picture of people trying to work a 3D grid at the Planetarium.
