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.

The Way It Is | Joe Evans, owner of Nobrow Coffee



Martin Luther King Jr. day (Jan. 21) calls to mind the great civil-rights struggles our nation faced in the not-too-distant past. City Weekly asked Joe Evans, owner of Nobrow Coffee: What is the great civil-rights struggle of today?

Well, while there is a lot going with the gay-rights movement, I think our biggest struggle is our country’s treatment of other cultures, and Muslims in general. Part of that is … defining torture and taking a strong stand against it. Our struggle will be about how we treat humanity and other cultures.
