Uber Convenient Eats
If you're accustomed to using Uber to deliver you to where you need to go, you might be surprised that it can also deliver things to you. As of Sept. 20, the company has expanded its UberEats food delivery service to the Salt Lake City area. Dozens of local eateries are signed up—including Pie Hole, Vive Juicery, Piper Down Pub, Pig & a Jelly Jar, Soup Kitchen and The Sweet Tooth Fairy—allowing you to get your goodies brought directly to you for the cost of your order plus $5.99. You can download the free UberEats app to get started.

Cupcake Heaven
The national tour of master cupcake baking makes a Utah stop this month, as America's Best Bakers visits the DoubleTree by Hilton near Salt Lake City Airport (5151 Wiley Post Way) on Saturday, Oct. 14, from 6-8 p.m. You can register as a participant for a chance to be crowned Utah's Cupcake Queen/King, or just as a guest with a sweet tooth who wants to sample the treats.

Museum Munchies
Every once in a while, local museums become a place for grown-ups to enjoy after-hours fun in some of the state's most fascinating venues. On Friday, Oct. 13, from 7-11 p.m., The Living Planet Aquarium (12033 Lone Peak Parkway, Draper, thelivingplanet.com) hosts a "Haunted Aquarium" Sips Under the Sea event, with appetizers and drinks included and costumes encouraged for a chance to win prizes. Cost is $39.95 per person, and tickets are limited. Meanwhile, The Leonardo (209 E. 500 South, theleonardo.org) presents an Oktoberfest-themed Libations at The Leonardo on Thursday, Oct. 12, starting at 6:30 p.m. Proper Brewing Co. will pair its craft beers with food offerings, including some special beer-infused recipes. Tickets are $55 per person or $75 with alcohol included. Leonardo members receive a $15 discount.
