You may want to visit the Gilgal Sculpture Garden in Salt Lake. www.gilgalgarden.org

They have some pretty unique stuff including a Joseph Smith Spinx.

Gilgal! That's it! I couldn't remember the name of the park!

Jersey, it's really tucked away, so you have to go looking for it, but it's worth it, and it's right in the same neighborhood as the Rodizio. Just kitty-corner across the street, if I remember right.

That Joseph Smith Sphinx gave me the willies when I was a kid. It is fine for adults.

Am I mistaken, or is this the garden that features a rather telling sculpture (as it were) of a women enclosed in a small, confined, prison-like structure?

If you come here in late spring, the Red Butte Botanical Gardens are fun to visit.

I could easily fake my way through 1956 and am already on Mountain Time


Name some restaurants that are particular to the area that have good food!!

Also, there are a TON of scrapbooking and rubber stamp companies in Provo...does anyone know if they have outlets?


Yes, I know I have boring interests.

You really can't see why you would make the perfect Mormon. I can see it in the above posts as clear as day.

I can see it...can anyone else see it???

Restaurants:

Rodizio Grill downtown Salt Lake City, or if you want something with more space and the food is just as good, Tucanos at the Riverbottoms in Provo. They're both brazilian grill.

Sundance's Tree Room (a bit pricey) or the Foundry Grill....I love the ambiance in both and the food is great. You can stop by and check out Bridal Veil Falls on your way.

The best sushi I've found thus far in Salt Lake City is a small bar downtown called O'Shucks Bar and Grill. The downside is that smoking is allowed and you end up smelling like an ashtray if you spend lots of time there.

The Mayan Restaurant has mediocre mexican food, but it is a neat dining experience. You can watch divers and it feels like you are sitting in the Swiss Family Robinson treehouse.

I second Park City. Thanksgiving Point has some lovely gardens in the spring. And if you have never been to Salt Lake City, you simply cannot overlook temple square.

If you are staying for any length of time, I'd recommend you head down south a couple of hours to Moab which has fantastic deserts. Don't forget to stop by Goblin Valley which has some really unique mushroom-shapped rock formations.

Hello All,

Misery stated in another post that Utah is behind the times. I will have an opportunity to visit Utah this Spring (yes, the Ikea store in Draper, like that's your business). What do I need to know about visiting Utah? Do's / Don'ts?

Jersey Girl



Misery is clueless.

Utah is not behind the times at all. You will find it Salt Lake City like any other large western city such as Denver, Boise, Phoenix, etc. You will not be able to order a liquor beverage in a restaurant other then a beer though and all liquor is sold in a state run liquor stores.



Quote:
Actually I think Jason is the clueless one.. I am pretty sure in most large resturants you can order a mixed drink.. Before the Olympics it was really screwy, you had to specify a liquor in your drink
.

When I lived there, which was a long time ago, you could not order a drink in a resturaunt. You could bring in a mni bottle and have them mix it though. They called it the Liquor By Drink law. Could have changed.

So TAK, what else I am cluelees about. I grew up in Utah, have fmaily there, visit there often and it seem like any other place for the most part to me, at least for a visitor. If you live there you might get sick of the predominant LDS culture, as well as the strong LDS influence in politics there. I would not live there after being out as long as I have. But it is not behind the times or anything like that.




So if you wanted a margarita you had to say “with tequila” … Oh and the beer is watered down to 3.2%.

Hmmm let me see, you conclude I have never been to Utah and the fact is I spent half my life there, have family there, have kids at and who have attended BYU and get there quite often.

So how many time and how much time have you spent in Utah?

And who looks dumb now?

Plenty of shopping. Check out the I think they call it the Gateway Center if you are there in nice weather. It is west of temple square about 4 block and you can take the light rail to it. It is a very nice new outdoor type mall.

Timpanogos Caves up American Fork canyon is great. The hike up is welled paved and about 1.5-2 miles. They give tours of the cave. The canyon is lovely. If you go there after words drive the Alpine loop a the top of the canyon. It takes you behind Mt. Timpanogas and over to Prove Canyon. It is awesome! It is about 35 mile south of downtown Salt Lake City. Go up little Cottonwood Canyon to Snowbird and ride the tram. Eat at the Steak Pit if you like a good steak. Park Cite has tons of good places to eat ant shop. Snowbird is about 20 miles from downtown Salt Lake City and Park City about 25.

You can see all the outside and the grounds but not inside, tour the tabernacle and conference center, and the visitor centers on temple square as well as tour the Church Office Building just east of Temple Square. There is also the Joseph Smith Memorial Building-used to be the Hotel Utah, the LDS History Museum and the Family History Library all within a block or two of each other. Also, you can tour the Loin House, Brigham Young's home.

As far as eating - this is going to sound cheesy - but I LOVE the Training Table. Get the Hickory burger (extra hickory sauce) and cheese fries with ultimate dipping sauce.

What types of food do you like? Do you have a big budget?


I like just about anything. Any restaurants that are considered Salt Lake City traditions? Money isn't a big deal.

Jersey Girl

La Caille at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon in Sandy, has good French food although it is pricey by Utah standards. Likewise Log Haven is also good. We have a number of good Indian and Thai restaurants in Salt Lake Valley.



YES Both of those are great!!! But LaCaille is high. Used to be calle Quail Run when I lived there. And Log Haven's Sunday Brunch is to die for. Log Haven is up Millcreek canyon.

Sweet Tomatoes in Sandy (I think) is by far the best for soups and salads (I go there every time I'm in Salt Lake City, even if I have to bum a ride).

Rodizio Brazilian restaurant. Salt Lake City. Very cool. Go hungry. Visit the little park that in the neighborhood if you want to see Joseph on the head of the Sphinx.

Dead Goat Saloon. Salt Lake City. Hilarious place.

Mandarin Restaurant, Bountiful. Very good Chinese.

Best ice cream: USU Creamery in Logan.


The Spaghetti Factory at Trolley Square is great as well.

I don't drink. I don't smoke. I don't watch x-rated videos. I do eat. How about me?

Just because a person doesn't do these things doesn't make them Mormon material. Academic and social beliefs have something to do with it. Give it a rest.

Vinnie the Tomato - does have a certain New Jersey quality to it. Yes, Sweet Tomatoes is at 100th South and State St. in Sandy.

Years ago, they used to have the best triple cheeseburgers in town. I am uncertain what has transpired with it, Arrow Press Square and the new Gordon B. Hinckley Mall. The garlic burgers at the Cotton Bottom Inn at the end of Holiday Boulevard are quite good.

Misery,

Are those the things you think would make me a good Mormon? The alcohol and stuff? Just for the written record, I have drunk/drank/drinked alcohol, I have gambled and have viewed x-rated movies. I'm from Jersey for pete's sake. I just don't do them any more mainly because I find it boring and quite honestly, I'd rather shop than gamble money. I visited Atlantic City this past summer and the bus company gives you 20$ to do with it what you will. Some of us took it into the casino's and gambled it (which is what they want you to do) and the rest of us (myself included) shopped with it!

Unfortunately I think Dead Goat is now a topless bar. The church tried hard to fight it.

I've literally had some of the best nights of my life listenin' to blues at the Goat.

by the way, I second Moksha's suggesion of La Cailles. It's gorgeous.

Well, that was a smart decision! I saw what you wrote and was planning to put the smack down on you for ending this very congenial thread on such a sour note! Just a few more questions and I'll let this float to the bottom of the pool.

No one has answered my question about the rubber stamp/scrapbooking companies in Provo. I wanted specifically to know if there were outlets for those companies there.

Thanks to all who recommended great restaurants and harmony, now I want to change my screen name to Sweet Tomatoes! I'm so not kidding! I'm definitely going to find that restaurant!
