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

Uncomfortable Thanksgiving

Eight touchy topics to avoid bringing up at the Thanksgiving dinner table this year.



Eight touchy topics to avoid bringing up at the Thanksgiving dinner table this year:

8. That Timmy’s hand-turkey drawings from kindergarten are “hopelessly derivative” and “pedantic.”

7. Whether or not Fox News’ March to Socialist Oblivion Holiday Special is appropriate dining viewing.

6. That mom bought the turkey in a parking lot from “Krazy Karl’s Van O’ Savings.”

5. Your sister’s married boyfriend she had to invite because he “saw my post about this stupid dinner on Facebook.”

4. That honey-baked ham and Jim Beam aren’t really an optimal pairing.

3. The opinion of your Twitter followers that a house on wheels is less a “home” than a “rolling sadness box.”

2. Uncle Ron’s third “totally out-of-context” appearance on To Catch a Predator.

1. The future of your job as a snarky list-maker for a free newspaper found primarily in bars and bail-bonds waiting rooms.
