Every Salt Lake weekend comes with a list of decisions. Where should you go? What should you do? In a city so rich with options, how do you choose?
Worry not. We’re here to help with this list of six pre-approved, guaranteed-to-be-a-good- time weekend activities.
Fluid Art: Twice a year UMOCA teams up with the Utah Brewers Guild for Fluid Art, a pairing of local Utah beer and contemporary art. Beer makers find similarities between their brews and the art on display at UMOCA, set up shop in front of the art distributing two ounce samples to attendees and chatting about the process that goes into making the beer. Full pours are available at additional charges. 21+.
20 S. West Temple, SLC, 6-9, $35, tickets here.
Sips Under the Sea: Bacon is having a moment. Taste samples of bacon-themed foods and walk around the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium with a drink in your hand at Sips Under the Sea. One drink ticket is included with your purchase of tickets and a cash bar is available. 21+.
12033 Lone Peak Pkwy, Draper, 7-11, $39.95, tickets available here.
Pixie and the Partygrass Boys at The Garage: It says it right there in the name. Of course they’re playing a 4/20 show.
The Garage on Beck, 1199 Beck St, SLC, 9:30, come with cash for a cover.
Saturday, April 21
Astronomy Day: Channel your inner Neil deGrasse Tyson at Astronomy Day at Clark Planetarium with hands-on astronomy learning and free classes—an introduction to telescopes class at noon and other about astrophotography at 2.
110 400 W., activities all day long, details here.
Earth Day Brunch: Word to your mother. Mother Earth, that is. It’s her day. Utah Rivers Council and Utah Open Lands are hosting a fundraiser brunch focused on what they call the conservation successes of the last year. Whether you agree with that summarization or not, there’s no better way to spend Earth Day. Squatters Brewery, 147 W. Broadway, 10-1, tickets available here.
Fun Home: Salt Lake magazine’s theater reviewer, Jeremy Pugh, says this play, based on Alison Bechdel’s memoir is real good. And, face it, you’ve got a better shot at tickets to this than Hamilton.
Various times through next weekend, 168 W. 500 N, SLC, tickets and details here.
