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 PressBackers.com, 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.

Shots at SLC's Irish spot



I don’t believe in leprechauns, pots of gold at the end of rainbows, or Bono. But I do believe that St. Paddy’s Day is awesome. Arguably, the best place to wear green and crush Irish car bombs is Piper Down (1492 S. State). This Saturday marks the biggest day of the year for Salt Lake City’s most authentic Irish spot. To celebrate Mr. Paddy, the “Olde World” pub will be opening its doors at 10 a.m. and serving up grub like fish & chips, haggis, tatties and, of course, corned beef & cabbage. From noon on, The Red Headed Step Twins, Heathen Highlanders, Rocky Mountain Irish Dancers and The Rebel Celts will provide tunes. To top it off, Piper Down is even claiming to have a real leprechaun. I suppose seeing is believing.
