You all know Darby, right? She's our self proclaimed, "typical Utah housewife….that home-brews on the regular, wrangles chickens and kids, makes charcuterie from the game meat she just 'brought in', and ends the day with a smokin' cocktail party for a few dozen of her closest friends." Amen. All told, she's one of our very favorite Salt Lakers…not only because she contributes masterfully-clever stories to our website on the regular, but because she's also a historian, booze-buff, and former firefighter and archeologist. She's our favorite kind of question mark--
"a refreshing paradox of vulgarity and southern charm."

Adorable bungalow, fantastic neighborhood, great proximity to all sorts of great stuff.

Writing and thoughtfully-placed curse words aside, however, this Kentucky mama has a billion talents. Among them are making a happy home and whipping up a sincerely mouth-watering cocktail. And, while reading this story won't get you the latter, you can at least get excited about the former. You see, Darby, her hubby Mike (the Harvard-educated landscape architect behind that xeriscaped front yard), and their two handsome boys will soon be putting down roots in a new SLC home…which means the cutie-pah (that's how she'd pronounce it) home you see in the photos below will be available for the next owner to make his/her own personal paradise. Adorable bungalow, fantastic neighborhood, great proximity to all sorts of great stuff, and a backyard fit for chickens and the like. Cocktails courtesy of Darby dearest; delicious eats courtesy of our very own HSL (and truth be told, we couldn't get enough of either). This is a home you'll want to make your own, and for under $400k, you very likely can. Keep your eyes peeled…when this bird hits the ground, we assure you, she'll be running.

Of the many events we attend each and every year, the HRC Gala ranks among our very favorites. We've got a wouldn't-miss-it-for-the-world kind of attitude about this one, which shouldn't be surprising, given the efforts of this incredible organization...

The Uffens Building is one of those SLC condo communities that oozes cool. Popped squarely downtown (and waffle adjacent, people), a space in the Uffens is tough to come by and well worth the wait...
