Two Old Guys World Tour
If you’ve been missing the live entertainment at Feldman’s Deli since they’re only open for curbside takeout these days, take heart. Owner Michael “Deliman” Feldman – who is half of the Two Old Guys music duo with partner Tally Evans – is performing out and about in the coming weeks. Yes, there IS live music even during the pandemic.
On Friday, August 7th, Two Old Guys will play at Level Crossing Brewing Company from 7 to 9 p.m. Then, on Sunday, August 9th they’ll be performing in a COVID-safe setting for a midday concert and a mixing bar for making your own drinks at the Haglund Ranch in Murray (1575 E. Vine St). The show is in support of the Brockstrong Foundation. Finally, on Friday, September 4th TOG will play live at Slackwater Pub & Pizzeria in Sandy, from 7 to 9 p.m.

I’ve been saddened – as I’m sure you are – by the slew of restaurant closures caused by the pandemic. I mourn every closure, from a McDonald’s location to a mom and pop independent eatery because I understand the pain that shuttering these businesses causes to everybody involved.
In particular though, I hated learning that the Mazza restaurant at 9th and 9th closed permanently. The good news is that Ali Sabbah’s other Mazza locations at 15th and 15th and in Sandy are open. Takeout is available at 15th and 15th while dine-in dinner service is happening in Sandy.
And, after 42 years of serving family style Italian fare in downtown SLC, Cannella’s has closed. Cannella’s opened in 1978 by Joe and Missy Cannella and losing the family owned and operated eatery will leave an irreplaceable void in the downtown dining scene.
Jorge Fierro’s Rico Brand is also potentially facing closure as they are losing the lease on their manufacturing location where they’ve been housed for 18 years.
These are just a few examples of the negative effect COVID 19 is having on the already fragile restaurant and dining scene in our community. Please support your favorite restaurants while you still can.
Lobsters on the Loose!
If you’re a seafood lover like I am, Park City’s Blind Dog Restaurant & Raw Bar has your number. Every Saturday is Lobster Saturday at Blind Dog, when diners can indulge in a 1 ¼ lb. Maine lobster with Old Bay fries, coleslaw and drawn butter for a mere $29 (carryout and curbside also available for an additional charge). Call the Blind Dog in advance to secure your lobster and reservation at 435-655-0800.
