Gateway Frida Fiesta

This Saturday, September 24th, The Gateway will host a celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month with its first ever Frida Fiesta, named for the iconic Mexican painter, Frida Kahlo. The Fiesta will be held at The Gateway’s Olympic Plaza from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Hispanic cuisine, margaritas, and food trucks will highlight the event along with music, mariachi bands, folkloric dancers, and plenty of activities for kids. Admission to Frida Fiesta is free and the all ages celebration is sponsored by Flanker Kitchen + Social Club in partnership with Latina Social Club. 

Sushi Sundays

I have good news for Park City sushi lovers. Bill White’s Sushi Blue restaurant is now open daily, including Sundays, for lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and for dinner from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. 

There is something for everyone at Sushi Blue, from freshly made sushi rolls, sashimi and nigiri, to a large array of cooked dishes running the gamut from grilled octopus and ramen to salads, sandwiches such as banh mi, glazed short ribs, rice bowls, Korean street tacos, and much more. Sushi Blue also has a complete selection of cocktails, wine and beer. Be sure to ask about the weekly special John DeBaun Roll. 

Shades Brewing Beer Dinner

The folks at Shades Brewing are teaming up with Franck’s Restaurant on Monday, September 26th to host a four-course beer dinner. Following an amuse bouche, the first course is Torched Ocean Trout Belly paired with Hoppy Pilsner. The second course is Roasted Dry Aged Duck with Shades Pineapple Pickled Jalapeño, followed by Grilled Wagyu Beef Sausage and Slick City IPA. Dessert will be Kabocha Squash & Salted Caramel Hand Pie paired with Shades Pumpkin Pie beer.
