At Least We Have Wordle?

In the last week I've asked myself repeatedly, "Is this headache from Covid or the chewable air hovering over our valley—or is it just January?"

We're having a bit of a rough go of it here in the Beehive State and if you're like me, you're looking for something to take your mind off of [waves hands dramatically] all of this.

So. Might I present these delightfully varied answers to the question "What is the single most delicious meal that SLC has to offer?"

Café Anh Hong Reopens at Sandy Location


Speaking of delicious meals, this week Food writer Aimee Cook gave us an inside look at Sandy's newest Cantonese restaurant: Café Anh Hong.

As a food writer, I’m often asked where to get the best food in Utah. The distinguished list may be longer than you think, but there is definitely some good dim sum in SLC.

RHOSLC


LRE gave us the recap we needed after a truly unhinged 17th episode of Housewives in Zy-On-z.

Whitney asks the impossible question:
It is a dumb question because they can’t answer honestly on camera. The real reason they are there is that they sold their souls and signed a contract to appear on this stupid show, giving up their voices to a network sea witch in exchange for a future career making $40 a pop on Cameo. To quote a tweet I saw today: “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City is a television show about being on reality television.

RHOSLC Season 2, Episode 17: A Reality Show About Being on a Reality Show
We left off with Jen screaming at Lisa in the same Sprinter van she fled when the feds were after her. More importantly, we left off with me thinking we only had two more episodes left in this season before the reunion.
