Salt Lake City’s second annual Eat Drink SLC kicked off at the Tracy Aviary on Thursday night as I felt a rush of endorphins take over my body thinking about last year’s incredible experience. This event gathers the best food of the valley as they join forces with domestic winemakers to produce a sold-out event that keeps you coming back for more. We drank, we ate and we nearly got our heads taken off by an angry vulture, all within the beautiful setting of the Tracy Aviary. From the people to the food to the sun setting over the trees of Liberty Park as your buzz finally starts to set in, it all ties together for one memorable night. If these words have not convinced you enough to save your pennies for next year’s event, then let me close by saying this: There are over 20 wineries sampling out several varieties of their vino, paired with several local breweries and distilleries, and all accompanied by some of the best food you could find from far and wide in the Salt Lake Valley. I challenge you to try and resist an event such as this come next year.
