Life Tips | From 12:36 am

Those who know me (and probably even those who have only read my stories on this site) can attest to the fact that I’m a bit of a workaholic. This is due in no small part to the fact that I’m completely obsessed with my company–and “a bit” may, in fact, be an understatement. I’m …

Liberty Heights Fresh

For the last 23 years, Liberty Heights Fresh–a superb little shop on the corner of 1300 East and 1100 South–has been making big waves on the palates and plates of many a Salt Lake local. Set in a 20s-era gas station, it’s a wee space that houses a big passion for good food. Owner and …

Field Notes: On Valentine’s Day

Field Notes: No Need for Pity, Fall in Love with Your City Valentines Day is nearing, pals, and the atmosphere is abuzz with equal parts love and bitterness. While many of us look forward to the Hallmark-ridden sentiment and office-wide flower delivery dog-n-pony show, there are just as many who aren’t in the damn mood …

Everybody Loves Ramona

Our Opinion: This charming dandy sits right smack dab in the middle of our wonderful Plat of Zion. The location is, in a word, perfect. She’s a bike ride from Liberty Park [Tracy Aviary, all manor of courts for the sports enthusiast, playgrounds galore, picnicking mecca, etc.] and Trolley Square. Push on a few more blocks, …

11242 Eagle View Dr.

Our Opinion: Often, it’s through contrast that we discover the beauty of something. Contrast gives meaning. It defines an object’s quality relative to something else. What would pleasure be without pain? Light without the dark? Donny without Marie? In our natural world, the contrast between modern architecture and its surroundings can be a tricky relationship, but …

F Street | ‘Ave It All

List Price: 485,000.00 Neighborhood: The Avenues Property Profile: 2,312 sq. ft. | 4 bed, 2 bath Our Opinion: As far as diverse and damn-cute ‘hoods go, you’d be hard-pressed to find one that checks off more boxes on your list than the Avenues.

Life in Your Space | On Ramona

What is it about the streets of this city we find so pleasing? The rows upon rows of perfectly planted homes, all bright and cheery and keeping our eyes peeled in delight. There’s a sense of order to this place, a logic in the layout, a harmony at play. The whole damn thing just feels …

Or it …

Life in Your Space | Eagle View

A few months ago, we had the pleasure of writing about this magnificent pearl on the East bench. Our friends, Rudy and Leah, had just completed an extensive renovation of the residence and had invited us over to see the fruits of their labor. We were, to say the least, awestruck. There is a dearth of …
