Guess what season it is?
IT’S CONCERT SEASON! Even better than spring!
Karina and I decided to take public transportation down so we wouldn’t have to deal with parking. When TRAX rolled to our stop downtown we unloaded and immediately sensed there was a problem.
There was no music playing.
Which is odd because the train drops you off pretty much right infront of the venue. Still we walked over to check it out.
There were no people.
So we looked at each other, sat down on a bench and pulled out the tickets. I looked over at her confused.
Me: “It says Gallivan Center… on the 22nd… I don’t understand.”
KTR: “That’s because today is the 24th, honey, not the 22nd.”
After laghing non-stop for a good ten minutes at just how freaking blonde we both are, we decided to get a drink and figure out what to do next.
We went to a little bar on Main Street called Murphy’s. After thumbing through the local entertainment magazine to try to find something to do, it became apparent that there was nothing going on.
So we sat at the bar, still laughing at our predicament, then Karina looked up and noticed a bunch of figurines that looked Irish. ”Do you think this is an Irish bar?”
I looked to the left at a menu and sure enough, green clovers… on a menu… at a bar called Murphys. “Yes honey, I am pretty sure we are at an Irish bar.”
This is when our brilliant “Plan B” began to take form. We were going to have no plan what-so-ever. Just go from bar to bar. BUT each bar should represent a different country.
We are soooo brilliant after two drinks!
Our next stop was a little place called The Beer Hive. When we got there we decided to add two new components to our journey. 1) order whatever the specialty drink is and 2) talk with an accent. An English accent.
We were honestly convinced that The Beer Hive was a German bar because the menu had all German food on it. However, when we asked the waitress if you had to be German to work there she informed us just how wrong we were.
Our next stop was a quick one to a place called Speak Easy. After sampling the bar tenders special, A blushing Vagina, we figured it wasn’t culturally diverse enough for us and moved on…
Oh Sushi! was the perfect stop as we were in desperate need of some sustinance grub by this point.
After leaving Japan, we had a moment of hesitation as to whether the night should end or continue on. Of course, the answer was to continue on!
Well… we were British after all, so a bar called Cheers to You would be foriegn, right?
We stayed long enough to have their special, a Rootbeer Mind Eraser chased by two large glasses of water, and were on our way to our last stop.
Unfortunately we didn’t remember to take a picture while at Kristauffs Martini bar.
In fact, we didn’t remember to order their specialy drink either. We just ordered water and headed back to where we started.
Sometimes the best nights are the nights you don’t plan and who says there is nothing fun to do in Salt Lake City anyway? All you need is an imagination, and a friend willing to experience the journey with you.
