To usher in this season of goodwill the folks at Temple Square have kindly offered us a $50 gift certificate to give away. The giveaway also coincides with the the Temple Square Christmas lights and free Christmas performances, all now in full swing.
If you are at all familiar with Salt Lake City, you probably already know about Temple Square and their yearly Christmas light display. Thousands of people descend on Temple Square during the holidays to enjoy, not only the light display, but an array of free choral performances too.
Throughout the holiday season there will be Christmas performances by high school, college, and community choral groups. Each free performance is 40 minutes in length. See here for full details of Temple Square Performances
One lucky winner will receive a $50 gift certificate, good at the Temple Square restaurant of his or her choice (The Roof Restaurant, The Garden Restaurant, Nauvoo Cafe, Lion House Pantry). For a chance to win the $50 gift card, all you have to do is complete the following sentence. “All I want for Christmas is……”. Leave your entry as a post on this article and we will select a winner randomly in one week’s time.

Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’ve worked extensively with multiple local publications from Visit Salt Lake to Salt Lake Magazine, not least helped to consult on national TV shows.
I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for the better part of fifteen years. I’m largely fueled by a critical obsession with rice, alliteration and the use of big words I don’t understand. What they’re saying about me: “Not inaccurate”, “I thought he was older”, “I don’t share his feelings”. Want to know more? This is why I am the way I am.
