Brio Bar Bites
The menu at Brio Tuscan Grille has expanded to include four new bar bites that are available Monday-Friday during happy hour. In addition to Brio mainstays like black-pepper shrimp, beef carpaccio and the Brio burger, diners can now enjoy the fiery bruschetta trio with roasted red pepper and steak; the gooey goodness of melted cheese, tomato compote and basil that comprise the margherita dip; Buffalo chicken nachos, which combine the two best bar foods known to the world; and the crispy shrimp Brio. The restaurant is also preserving its $5 martini Wednesdays and $5 wine Thursdays to help ring in the new year.
The Swedish Lodge
Ski season is upon us, which means Park City might become a second home to us valley-dwellers. As such, the mountain town is host to seasonal shops and eateries such as The Swedish Lodge. As a nod to Swedish ski culture, the lodge is designed as an après-ski destination for skiers and snowboarders to kick back and enjoy some Swedish refreshments or perhaps a bit of General Snus, a smokeless and spitless tobacco that is popular in the Scandinavian country. Check it out from 11 a.m-7 p.m. at 577 Main, Park City.
Recipe for Love?
I totally don't watch ABC's The Bachelor, so I totally don't know that this season's square-jawed prize is named Arie Luyendyk Jr. and is a professional race car driver. What I do know is that one of the ladies contending for Luyendyk's heart is none other than Marikh Mathias, co-owner of Sandy's Karma Indian Cuisine. As I don't watch the show, I won't be rooting for Mathias during each episode to at least get to the semi-finals so I can photo-bomb her and Luyendyk during hometown week. Instead, I'll totally be watching something else. Like football or something.
