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

Pastrami Burgers Are Sacrosanct



The love you take is equal to the love you make—so it’s no wonder that, after City Weekly’s annual orgy of sharing and caring (i.e. the Best of Utah issue) went online, the comments board has become a veritable lovefest, bubbling over with sweetness, light and goodwill—which is just the sort of thing Rant Control is glad to see on a sunshiny spring day. First of all, “tkcr79” wanted us to know that, like Joe at Union Park, her own favorite Walmart greeter has the stuff of greatness:

“I love this article, but I must disagree, or at least add an additional ‘Best of’—my West Valley Walmart greeter is a wonderful, friendly man, a Pacific Islander who, when he isn´t welcoming you in enthusiatic tones, is singing beautifully and loudly, serenading all who walk through the doors. I love him!”

After hearing that, Rant Control loves him, too! Although it must be admitted that I prefer Costco for my 5-gallon-drum peanut-butter purchases. The “greeters” there merely strip-search you on the way out the door before impaling your 15-foot receipt tape on a ball-point pen. (No one knows why; it’s just their way.)

Next up, we have “Green Guy,” who lamented an omission:

“I´ll let it slide this year because it´s relatively new, but if Bevalo doesn´t get a nod somewhere for coffee next year, I´ll know the whole things rigged.” Obviously, a man who loves his coffee! Although … just a little threatening. Rant Control will certainly have to watch out for Green Guy! Ah, well, another one of his comments was in agreement with the readers’ pick for Best Burger

“Crown Burger is absolutely the best. Great folks, great food. Don´t mess with the Greeks!”

Mess with the Greeks? Rant Control wouldn’t dare
