Tuesdays with Morrie are dead and gone … damn, I’m a morbid betch! Tuesdays are now all about a surge of great musical acts: My favorite being Walk Off The Earth. Some may call them posers, but I find them incredibly talented and humorous to boot. Then there’s the black sheep, the Big Ass Show … that’s not a racist comment, right? Anyhoo, the annual series includes Rage Against the Machine and Panic! At The Disco, plus many more.

Oh lord, here’s another beer event for Joshua Jones. The Utah Museum of Contemporary Art is pairing up with the Utah Brewers Guild for an evening of art and microbrews. But if memory serves, Josh’s idea of great art is anything with red velvet and pairs only with a 40-ounce bottle of Colt 45!
