Log Haven Celebrates 100 Years!
Salt Lake City’s most venerable restaurant, Log Haven, celebrates its 100th Anniversary this month. Congratulations to owner/founder Margo Provost and everyone at Log Haven for their hard work and incredible success through the years.
Don’t get me wrong … Margo and the restaurant aren’t 100 years old. However, Log Haven had its origins a hundred years ago when it was originally built as a log mansion in 1920 by Salt Lake steel baron L. F. Rains. It was an anniversary gift to his wife.
After it had fallen into disrepair, Margo Provost purchased Log Haven in 1994 and renovated and restored the historic building and grounds. The restaurant itself celebrated its 25th anniversary last year. During that time – the past quarter century – I’ve thought that Log Haven, particularly with David Jones as chef, has been at the top of the heap as the most consistently satisfying fine dining restaurant in Utah. So much so, that I married the events coordinator there. (Just kidding honey, I’d have married you if you worked at Burger King.)
Log Haven invites you to don your 20s attire and celebrate the 100th Anniversary at the restaurant with food and drink specials in addition to the regular menu. The anniversary celebration will be going on from March 20 through April 3. In addition, Log Haven will feature a live band, dancing, 1920s decor and attire, a photo booth, and more on opening night, March 20th and on closing night, April 3rd. I’m planning to dust off my tux for the occasion.
Anniversary 1920s-style dinner specials include dishes such as Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail, Maxim’s de Paris’ Steak Au Poivre, Ice Box Cake, and classic cocktails like Hanky Panky, Grasshopper and Scoff-Law.
Congratulations to everyone at Log Haven on this amazing milestone!
St. Paddy’s @ Feldman’s
It goes without saying that you could celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in a crowded Irish bar with steam table Irish fare. Or, you could head over to your favorite Jewish deli, Feldman’s Deli, where they really know a thing or two about corned beef.
Feldman’s will be celebrating St. Paddy’s Day with their renown corned beef and cabbage for dinner on Saturday night, March 14, and again on Tuesday, March 17, for both lunch and dinner. In addition, you can enjoy live music at Feldman’s Deli with the Celtic music of Callanish on Saturday night and Otter Creek playing Celtic, traditional and original tunes on Tuesday. Erin go bragh!
High West Mobile Après Ski @ Deer Valley
Few spots in Park City are more popular for après ski than the High West Distillery Saloon on Park Avenue. Well, the folks at High West are now taking their spirits to the snow. Specifically, to Deer Valley Resort, where they’ll be setting up a mobile après ski Whiskey Lounge.
The Distillery invites guests to go “bottoms up” at the High West Après Ski Whiskey Lounge where they’ll be serving up classic High West cocktails via Airstream travel trailer on March 20, 21, and 22 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the Silver Lake area located mid-mountain at Deer Valley Resort.
“We are thrilled to bring our High West spirits to Deer Valley’s slopes and its visitors,” High West Head of Hospitality Elisabeth Flaherty said. “Après hours are such a fun time to reflect and unwind after an unforgettable day on the hill, and we’re so grateful to be a part of that experience.”
Whiskey and warmer weather skiing sounds like a perfect match to me!
