One more event for your calendar – and this time – a chance to win tickets to boot! Celebrate The Bounty is the last major foodie event of the season, before we all hunker down and hibernate.
The event benefits Local First Utah, the local organization that seeks to energize and promote the buy local movement; from Logan to St. George, Vernal to Delta and just about everywhere in between, LFU works to catalyze buy local movements in our rural communities, and build dynamic independently driven neighborhoods in our urban centers.
Celebrate The Bounty is held on November 9th (7-10 p.m.) at the Rico’s Warehouse, and is your last chance of the year to party with the foodie crowd. Seriously, we’ll be three feet under the white stuff soon, eating nothing but turkey and leftover mashed potatoes for two months. Actually that doesn’t sound too bad, but still…
This years Celebrate The Bounty features more than a dozen of Utah’s finest, at time of print including:
* Avenues Bistro
* Cafe Trio
* Dough Co
* Even Stevens
* Frida Bistro
* Laziz Kitchen
* Normal Ice Cream
* San Diablo Churros
* The Wild Rose
In addition to bites, there will be handcrafted cocktails, local wine and beer too. And while you’re sipping and sampling you can also grab some awesome local products from a variety of local businesses. A silent auction runs through the night with prizes from the likes of: Cotopaxi, Epic Brewing, Chocolate Conspiracy, Kerij Jewelry, Basalt Day Spa, New World Distillery, Vive Juicery and many more.
Tickets are just $55 ($65 if you’re drinking) and can be purchased online at:

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.
