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. DONATE

6. “Relay this news to Dick Nourse for the evening wagon-train report, quickly!”

5. “Finally, somewhere I can really make this beard-with-no-mustache look catch on.”

4. “How do you spell desert? D-e-s-e-r-e-t? We’ll check it later …”

3. “One liquor store right … about … there. That should cover this half of the continent.”

2. “Lots of room and … I brought how many wives? Oh, great!”

1. “Don’t worry—Californians will have nothing to complain about when they visit us.”
