I have a new place to tell you about! Especially those of you in Utah! But, first of all....have you entered to win a Rug from Rugs Direct yet? If not.....go HERE to enter! Who doesn't need a new rug? For free?
I know, right!
Anyway, Utah is getting hip! With the opening of Granary Row , it seems that we might be getting bit cooler here in Salt Lake City. It is a very unique place! From the website:
"Granary Row is a pop-up market and festival space. It's a community space, as well as a breeding ground for local businesses.
Granary Row is the very sort of "big idea" that it hopes to foster — a bold urban venture aimed at inspiring and fostering the entrepreneurial ambitions of Salt Lake City's creative class. At its core, it's an experiment in ware-steading the Granary with microventures that will make the District their home — in turn sustaining the neighborhood as a place where makers live, work, and play!"
Carl and I decided to check it out a few weekends ago. It just happened to be the weekend of the Salt Lake Art's Festival, so the crowd was a bit sparse, which they expected. Not a huge crowd, but I can see it really catching on this summer! The whole place is set around those huge shipping containers:
There are retail vendors housed in many of the containers, which is pretty cool! There is also a variety of food trucks each night, and a beer garden (earth, wind and beer) hosted by Uinta Brewing, which is awesome! Granary Row is located on 700 South and 300 West. Right in the middle of the street, and adjacent to Kilby Court. There is also entertainment each night on the main stage. For dinner, Carl and I decided on Blue Pablano and it did not disappoint!
I chose veggie & steak tacos (with beans and rice) and Carl chose the special of the night (which I can't remember the name of). Both of our choices were delish! We were able to take our dinner in to the beer garden to dine al fresco and order a beer, which was nice.
We really had a great time! It was nice to just relax, eat some good food, listen to music and just enjoy a nice summer night. I'm excited to see Granary Row grow and succeed!
If you live in Utah, have you check it out yet? If you don't live in Utah, do you have any spots like this?
Have a great day!
