Taste Of The Wasatch
A quick reminder that there are still just a few tickets left for this Sunday’s Taste Of The Wasatch (Sunday, August 3rd at Solitude). Prices are $90 for general admission and $125 for VIP – that gets you inside the covered pavilion and a guaranteed seat, not to mention early access at 11.30AM. Both entry levels come with six drink tickets (wine, beer and heavy beer) and access to over 50 restaurants, their culinary genius and as much as you can eat therein.
Oh, and its a great cause too.

Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC and The Utah Review; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’ve worked extensively with other local publications from Utah Stories through to Salt Lake Magazine and Visit Salt Lake.
I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for more than a decade. I’m largely fueled by Uinta Cutthroat, alliteration and the use of too many big words I don’t understand. I ate all the pies.
