Ogden Restaurant Week Wraps
Just a reminder that Ogden Restaurant Week continues through November 13th, then it’s a wrap for 2021. For this year’s restaurant week, 20 of Ogden’s independently owned downtown restaurants come together to produce the event, which is the ultimate opportunity to sample a wide variety of cuisine at some of the best restaurants in downtown Ogden.
Among the great options during Ogden Restaurant Week is WB’s Eatery, which is featuring their delicious Tin Can Tuna Salad, Chimichurri Steak Skewers, Brussels Sprout Tostadas, Chile Chocolate Pot de Creme and other dishes from their restaurant week menu. Or, head over to Pig & A Jelly Jar for the Pie Burger, Ham Hash, Beignets, Fries & Gravy, and other tempting comfort foods to enjoy.
Miracle on 4th @ Caffe Molise
Our friends at Caffe Molise have created a special cocktail called Miracle on 4th, with a portion of the proceeds going to One Small Miracle, a local charity that aims to help service industry workers with unplanned medical events. The Miracle on 4th cocktail is made with Tito’s Vodka, muddled berries, simple syrup, fresh lemon, and a Pinot Noir float.
Here is the lowdown on One Small Miracle: “In Utah, service industry professionals remain uninsured at a rate four times the average of workers in other industries. For these individuals, navigating an unplanned medical event can be particularly challenging: even a 2 to 4-week recovery from an injury or everyday accident can create a lasting financial strain beyond the unplanned medical costs. Without another safety net to aid with living expenses, a worker’s illness or injury can cause both immediate and lasting impact.”
“One Small Miracle exists to help bridge these gaps, providing short term support for core living expenses (rent, groceries, utility bills) as workers recover and can make longer-term plans related to their health issues. To date, OSM has provided more than $92,000 in direct support to Utah service industry workers.”

Alton Brown Live @ The Eccles
If you’re a food lover you probably know of Alton Brown. He’s a popular Food Network television host and best-selling author of several books about food and cooking.
Well, Alton Brown is hitting the road with a new culinary variety show called Alton Brown: Beyond the Eats and making a stop in Salt Lake City on November 20th at the Eccles Theater for two shows at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. Audiences can expect more comedy, more music, more highly unusual cooking demos, and more potentially dangerous sciencey stuff. Prepare for an evening unlike any other and if Brown calls for volunteers… think twice. Tickets are available at arttix.org.
