High West Wins Park City Cocktail Contest

Congrats to the crew at High West on winning the 2020 Park City Area Restaurant Association’s Summer Cocktail Contest. 

When the votes were tallied, the winner was High West’s Robbie Remmes for his cocktail called Devil’s Addition. There were 17 participating restaurants and both Park City locals and visitors were encouraged to vote online for their favorite summer cocktails. 

According to the folks at High West, “This year’s summer sipper mixes High West’s Double Rye! whiskey, Tanqueray 10, Cocchi Americano, Matcha Simple Syrup, fresh lemon and pineapple juice, Hops Tincture and Fever Tree Soda Water.”

“This year’s cocktail contest recipes were so full of originality, and I’m honored to be voted the winner,” said Remmes. “Within our talented bartender community, the event is a great opportunity to continue challenging each other to always serve up our best, most creative ideas.”

Pago + Shop in Utah BOGO

This is some good news in a pandemic from Scott Evans, owner of Pago restaurant at 9th & 9th. He says, “Pago & Finca are excited to announce a limited promotion in partnership with the “Shop in Utah” grant program through the Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED). We will be offering a lunch, dinner and brunch “Buy One Entree, Get One Free” (BOGO) 7 days per week until the grant runs out. The State of Utah is buying your second entree!”

He adds, “As you would expect, we are operating with extreme safety and have instituted rigorous cleaning, sanitizing and safety protocols for our guests and staff. Tables are spaced 6ft or more apart and our staff will all be wearing masks. Guests will be required to wear masks when not seated. We will have extra masks available at no charge if you happen to forget yours. Stay safe and do your part. We are doing ours.”

The Store

The Store Celebrates 1st Birthday

This week, The Store Fine Food Market & Deli celebrated its first birthday with a week of specials to demonstrate their appreciation for their customers. 

Despite the difficulties of operating a business in a pandemic, The Store owner Scotty Niederhauser said, “It has been a wonderful first year of servicing the The Gateway and downtown Salt Lake City with our gourmet food products while also offering essential items and delivery since the pandemic began in the spring.” He added, “We know these are difficult times for many, so we hope these food specials are a way to not just express gratitude to our customers, but to also help them out with our birthday specials.”

“We’re proud to have a local grocer that provides a much-needed amenity for those living and working downtown to walk or bike to,” says Jacklyn Briggs, Marketing Director of The Gateway. “They’ve adapted quickly to offer pick up and online ordering to make shopping locally even more accessible while supporting other local businesses by selling their products.”

Here’s to many more anniversary celebrations in the years to come for The Store.
