Roller Derby: Northern Style
The Hilltop Aces and the After Shocks were fresh off a bout when we caught them drinking at Kamikazes in Ogden (2404 Adams Ave.). We found that the northern chapter of the derby sensation in Utah could hold its own in a drinking competition with their southern sisters any day. And the ladies can dance, too. Good show, Ogden! We never thought we’d say that out loud.
Kandyland 4: Utah Uncensored Crashes Into The Bay
404 S. West Temple harbors The Bay and a helluva good time on April 30 for Utah Uncensored’s Kandyland 4. The party, we’re told, is inspired by a mashup of Willy Wonka and Alice in Wonderland. Uncensored suggests applying the word “sexy” to your costume choice, as well. There will be go-go dancers, body painting, costume contests and giveaways, along with “Kandy Girls”—whatever the hell that means.
Inferno Cantina: Alive in the Sandbar
Lumpy’s Downtown recently took over management of the Sandbar’s former location at 122 W. Pierpont Ave. The place still has the same Mexican cantina/nightclub vibe. Tuesdays are “Taco Tuesdays,” and every weeknight they start the music up, just like they used to, and turn the pebbled floor into a dance party.
Barbary Coast Bingo:
Begins in May
May 1 means that summer is drawing even closer, but it also means bingo is back at Barbary. Barbary Coast Saloon (4242 S. State) is a biker bar, but they open their burly hearts to the community and round up seniors from nearby rest homes to come rub shoulders with their regulars on Sunday nights.
