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.

Feedback from November 19 and Beyond



Best of Utah, Nov. 19
Wow, what a beautiful [cover] design. I need this framed.

Thank you for a great issue overall. An essential checklist for my winter takeout!

Amy Donaldson ("Best All-Purpose Journo") is truly a gem of a person. Agreed with this selection, 110 percent. Go, Amy!

"Best Elected Official: Rep. Ben McAdams"
This just sucks! (Editor's note: Ben McAdams just lost his re-election to Burgess Owens) Congrats, Utah County, on electing a congressman who's a conspiracist with multiple bankruptcies and owes back taxes. Party over country.

Thankful Spirits
"Best Local Spirits: Five Wives Vodka"
We love our community and are proud to stand together! Thank you for the love.
via Instagram

"Best Beer Selection:The Bayou"
Thanks, guys! It will take some work getting the beer list back to fighting form when this damned pandemic subsides, but we are up for it.
via Instagram

"Best Unique Spirits: Holystone Distilling"
We are so humbled and happy! Many, many thanks to all of the incredibly hardworking staff at City Weekly. Not just for this, but truly for all that you do each day, week, month and year to support and celebrate our community.

"Best LGBTQ Bar: The Sun Trapp"
Been here a few times with some of my gay friends, never had a bad time. Everybody there is friendly.
via Instagram

OK, this should be the best overall bar in Utah, regardless of patron tendencies!
via Instagram

"Worst Utahn: Mike Lee"
I consistently sign environmental petitions that get sent to Mike Lee's office. His response is always something like: "the environment doesn't matter. What matters is capitalism and making our state prosperous." Ugh!
via Instagram

Mike Lee is such a nut bag, and that is offensive to nuts and bags.
via Instagram

City Weekly is out for blood. I wonder if they'll be my second when Mike Lee accepts my challenge to a duel.

Private Eye, Nov. 19 column: "Best of You"
Very sad to see [those restaurants] close. We are doing our best to raise awareness in our community and get people to do weekly takeout or curbside.
via Instagram

Thank you, John. Supporting local is so important.

Correction: Stringham Schools, winner of Best Trade School, offers 120-hour real-estate sales agent courses. (Their Best of Utah story stated an incorrect number of hours.) The founders sold the school 12 years ago, and current owners say the school "continues to offer high-quality education with personable staff that's 'like family.'" Its home-inspection courses are offered through a nationwide sister company, American Home Inspector's Training.
