The fifth annual Eat Drink SLC has come and gone, but our palates remain ever changed. Every year, this amazing event sells out days in advance and every year they up their game with new and exciting restaurants, bars, distilleries, breweries and wineries. As we celebrate Salt Lake’s coming of age as a culinary hotspot, we do so at Tracy Aviary, whose location could not be a better host for an event such such as this. We sample the best in seasonal fare from many of our finest restaurants and drink until our bellies are full and our smiles shine bright.
Craft cocktails decorate the area thanks to local distillers and the bar staff from around town while boutique national and international wines accompany our plates. If hard liquor or wine is not for your liking, award winning beer from around the state is showcased as well, providing a wide variety of options for pairing your food and drink.
All proceeds from Eat Drink SLC benefit local non-profits that enhance our community and our lives. The festival has raised over $45,000 for worthy causes such as Comunidades Unidas, Race Swami, Tracy Aviary, and SB Dance. For this year’s event, the 2019 community partner chosen was Neighborhood House, whose mission is to enrich, empower and educate children and adults through quality, affordable day care and support services. If you missed out on this year’s event, make sure to mark your calendar for next year and come prepared to have a culinary experience in Utah unlike any other.
