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

6. Pro: Women in short kilts.
5. Con: Dudes in kilts of any length.
4. Pro: Cinco de Mayo, the fake holiday with the good food, is only seven weeks away.
3. Con: President Cheeto will probably have it outlawed by then.
2. Pro: Green coloring makes 3.2 tap beer at least somewhat festive.
