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

A Stir-ing Friday Night at W



Start with a small, intimate bar, mix in one of the city’s best DJs, pour on a few hundred ounces of cocktails and you’ve got yourself a Stir-Friday at W Lounge (358 S. West Temple). This weekly event has been around for a little more than two years and has become a staple for Salt Lake City partygoers. Resident DJ and 2011 CWMA DJ of the Year DJ Flash & Flare hosts this always-bassy event. He has showcased other local talent and also big-name, out-of-town acts such as Kid Sister, Rye Rye, The Hood Internet and, coming up March 30, moombahton producer JWLS. Known for great music, W Lounge also offers a slew of organic beverages, including $3 beers and specialty shots like $4 blueberry bombs. It sounds easy enough, but not everyone can make a Stir-Friday—they’re only available at W Lounge.


A Stir-Friday also includes a 2:1 ratio.
