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.

Meat-Free Mondays
In an effort to help “lower emissions and make the Earth’s atmosphere healthy for all,” Acme Burger Company has introduced Meat-Free Mondays, encouraging customers to eat less meat by eschewing meat one day per week. A burger joint that discourages the consumption of meat? Now, that’s different. But then, Acme’s slogan is “Anything but common.” Hardcore carnivores needn’t fret, however: In addition to meat-free dining options, on Meat-Free Mondays the regular, meaty Acme menu will still be available. Acme Burger Company is located at 275 S. 200 West. Phone Acme at 801-257-5700 or visit online at AcmeBurgerCompany.com.

Terminating Tipica
If you haven’t been to Tipica yet, better hurry. According to Matt Caputo, Tipica will close at the end of the month. Customers are looking for a “more casual evening dining experience,” said Caputo. “Starting in February, we will extend Caputo’s deli hours for dinner service. Sandwiches and salads will still be served on the dinner menu but we will also serve many rustic Italian hot dishes using provincial Italian ingredients from our award-winning market.”
