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

Back to School 2007

Feature: It’s time to hit the books. City Weekly helps make the grind less painful.


Learn it. Know it. Live it.

What’s more fun than going back to school? Yeah, we’ll wait right here as you compile the list.

We’ve compiled a few lists of our own for City Weekly’s second annual Back to School issue: Cheap dates, thrifty shops, hook-up guidelines, college accessories, theater productions and live music, as well as a thesis or two on art, movies and returning to school later in life—on purpose! Fortunately, we’re not being graded on these assignments.

Please enjoy our 2007 collegiate edition, and remember: No shirt, no shoes, no dice.

(See, kids, that line and the cover inspiration come from the 1982 film classic Fast Times at Ridgemont High, a coming-of-age tale about … high school. Once again, we’re not being graded on this.)
