Mike Brown’s Monthly Dirt: Natturday!

Mike Brown’s Monthly Dirt: Natturday!
By

For those who don’t know, Natturday is the unofficial last day of the year at one of my favorite places on this big stupid Earth, Brighton Resort. Natty Light hosts a beach bash and turns the resort into a tailgate of legendary proportions. The first time I discovered Natturday was a few years ago when I was asked to judge a bikini contest. It was great: I sat there and was fed beers while half-naked girls tried to win stupid prizes by dancing around in the snow. … read more

Holy skid marks, Batman! On June 3, SLUG celebrates LGBTQ Pride. It’s safe to say it’s easily the most extravagant SLUG event of the year. We’ve put a lot of effort into our past contingents, and this year will be no different. SLUG people are people of tolerance who fight for the rights and safety of all. We will shout this out from the streets on Pride and we want all that heed this call to help us on our super hero-themed float. … read more

Beautiful Godzilla: Will You Go To Prom With Me? Check _ Yes _ No

Beautiful Godzilla: Will You Go To Prom With Me? Check...
By

Last year fellow lady cyclist Agnes Robl and a handful of others decided Salt Lake City needed a bike prom. Jonathan Morrison of the Bicycle Collective, along with a bunch of help from some more dedicated cyclists, made it a reality. Wouldn’t you know it, the hands-down most fun dance I’ve ever been to, I attended stag. I said no to all of my suitors, matched my dress to my pink bike chain and danced the night away with friends and strangers after going on one of the best-dressed group rides in the history of Western bike civilization. … read more

Ask a Cop – May 2012

Ask a Cop – May 2012
By

Dear Cop,
Since “it’s not normally for traffic violations” that a cop interacts with a cyclist, I ask: What is the normal reason that cops interact with cyclists? Do cops have a method of profiling cyclists at night? If so, what do y’all look out for? I want to be aware of any socio-economic discrimination (targeting poor people) we might be subject to at night. … read more

Gallery Stroll: Crawling Your Way Through Utah’s Art Scene
By

I have beer on the brain and I don’t know why. It could be that this is SLUG’s Fifth Annual Beer issue, and everywhere I look, from articles to ads, the word “beer” makes its way into every third sentence. Or it could be as simple as I want to get out of the house and throw back a few frothy pints. Either way, I can’t help but think that gallery strolling has many similarities to the traditional pub crawl. … read more
