Get ready for this summer’s biggest dinner party — reservations for the Park City Area Restaurant Association’s annual Savor the Summit on Main Street are now open.

Hundreds of residents and visitors will sit together at the summit’s “Grande Table” down the center of Main Street on Saturday, June 21. More than a dozen of Park City’s renowned restaurants will offer their choices of dinner and drinks, with menu prices ranging from $50 to $150 per person, and wine and beverage pairings either extra or included, depending on the establishment.

“This event pairs Park City’s world-renowned restaurants with Utah’s world-famous summers and sunsets,” PCARA executive director Ginger Ries said. “Everyone in our community is invited to together for a great evening out on the town.”

The event will also feature a Spirit Garden serving local wine and beer at the intersection of Heber Avenue and Main Street, and a live musical performance by the Savor-favorite band, Mountain Town Music.

beehive distilling ginJack Rabbit Gin

Utah’s first legal gin since 1870 (created in state) is now hitting liquor store shelves courtesy of Beehive Distilling. I received the followed press released early this week: “It started with the idea that gin wasn’t given the love it deserved. Real gin – a blast of juniper followed by a complex intrigue of all the other botanicals – was being challenged by pretenders. Beehive Distilling, the makers of Jack Rabbit Gin, produce small batches in a small still. Botanicals measured and macerated by hand, distilled, bottled and labeled in their Salt Lake City distillery”.

Beehive themselves went further to add “After dozens of recipes, we hit on the gin we call Jack Rabbit. It’s made for the gin lover. A complex blending of botanicals that never forgets that Juniper is king. Bold, upfront taste with a crisp floral finish, Incredibly smooth, makes an amazing gin and tonic. (The) strong flavors enhance multi-ingredient cocktails”.

This new gin is available at the Utah State Wine Store at 255 South 300 East (DABC Code: 947054) $27.99 a bottle. Let me know if you try it!
