SLUG Magazine

Princess Kennedy

I’m here with a guide to get your gay on. From lingo to parties, I got your back gurl—You’ll need to do a little research. Luckily you have an entire month until Gay Pride.

Aztec Highway: Hookah How-To

Aztec’s resident hookah expert Santino Novasio is here to spread the love with some pro tips for all the Salt Lake hookah lovers and future enthusiasts.

Drifting with Mike Brown

At Drift Enterprise, they look for speed, line, angle consistency, smoke, how close you get to the clipping points without knocking over the cones, and sometimes how close you can get to the wall without pulling a Dale Earnhardt, Sr.  I personally found drifting way more entertaining than just watching cars go in circles for a couple hours.

Gallery Stroll

SLUG is always looking for ways to direct readers to the best deals in town, which is why the Gallery Stroll appears on our radar the third Friday of every month.

Inversion Trawler

Aunt Leona is an obvious top candidate for an interview, so we ambushed her when she came by our place to talk to mom about whether or not bangs would suit the shape of her face.

Wizard Fest

Wizard Fest is in its fourth year and if you’re web-savvy, love local music and are comfortable with driving towards the middle of nowhere––you might find yourself at one hell of a party.
