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.

Jackalope Lounge

Vinyl pushers on State Street



Historically, Friday and Saturdays have always been The Jackalope Lounge’s (372 S. State, 801-359-8054) heavy-hitter evenings. But a couple of weeks ago, State Street’s favorite duck-in added Matty Mo Mondays to the lineup. As we all know, it’s hard out here for pimp (especially on a Monday), so, thankfully, DJ Matty Mo and Jackalope have teamed up for some relief. If you’re unfamiliar with Matty Mo, the guy has been one of my favorite DJs for years—he’s one of the few vinyl pushers who can maneuver between house and hip-hop with little to no effort. Plus, he was selecting Juicy J tracks long before Hustle & Flow won an Oscar. While you twerk, be sure to take advantage of Jackalope’s $3 Beam, Jager and Fireball shots. And, of course, don’t forget about the trusty $2 Miller High Life bottles and $2 Ancient Age shots. (Photos from Feb. 8)
