professional cyclists on the planet. You are ready to enjoy the 7th edition of the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah. The six-day stage race is scheduled for August 9-14 and has been recently elevated to one of the top three pro cycling events of its kind for North America. In fact, after the prestigious Tour de France concludes on ChampsÉlysées in Paris on July 24, some of the top teams in the world will head to the U.S. and will make the Tour of Utah their next major race on American soil. “The 2011 Tour of Utah is a must-see race for U.S. fans, where you’ll find the best cycling athletes in the world competing across one of the most scenic

regions in the world,” said American Levi Leipheimer, the 2010 champion of the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah who plans to defend his title this year with Team RadioShack. At last year’s Tour de France, Leipheimer finished 13th overall. A native of Montana, his best finish at the Tour de France was in 2007 when he placed third overall. “I really appreciate a race like the Tour of Utah, which keeps getting bigger and better. From all the volunteers in the local communities, to the sponsors, and to all the fans who come to each stage, I look forward to defending my title with Team RadioShack this year,” added Leipheimer.


UTAH A total of 15 professional teams, with eight riders per team, will be invited to race the 2011 Tour of Utah. This will include the world’s best pro teams, like Team RadioShack, Team BMC and the world’s No. 1 team, HTC-Highroad. Teams like UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling Team and Team Type 1 – sanofi-aventis have all-star rosters, as well.

The Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah began as a three-day event over Memorial Day weekend in 2004 for amateur and elite cyclists. The Utah Cycling Partnership, owned by family members from the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies, purchased the event in 2007 and re-launched it the following year as a professional event covering five days. The race had grown from 9,000 feet of climbing in the first years to nearly 30,000 feet of climbing, becoming known as “America’s Toughest Stage Race.” It now features a week-long festival across multiple cities, with the pro race including a prologue and five stages.

the entire field will be the who’s who of professional cyclists.”

The Tour of Utah will begin for the professionals on Tuesday, August 9, with an opening Prologue in Park City. Stage races will be hosted the next two days by Ogden and Provo, respectively. On Friday an individual time trial will be held for the fourth consecutive year at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah. On Saturday, the pros will compete in a circuit race in downtown Salt Lake City. And the final day of competition will be the “Queen Stage” on Sunday, which is an epic day of climbing

from Park City to Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort in Little Cottonwood Canyon. This could be the decisive stage to determine the 2011 champion.

The Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah continues to be free to all spectators, making professional cycling one of the most unique pro sports in the world today. More than 350 volunteers are needed for the event, and cycling fans are encouraged to volunteer for one or more days of the event. Official information will be posted at www.tourofutah.com, with updates on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

“This is really big for Utah. Professional cycling provides a unique setting from which we can showcase our beautiful state. It’s great for spectators. It’s great for athletes. And, it’s particularly great for tourism,” said Steve Miller, president of the Utah Cycling Partnership. “We’re very grateful to the fans and sponsors, without whom, this race simply would not be possible.

Patio dining in Salt Lake City By Lori Lee

W

hen you hear “patio dining,” many folks picture revving up the ol’ grill, shining the spatula, throwing on spiced burgers and juicy steaks and calling friends over for dinner. But along the Wasatch Front that’s not the only way to enjoy a patio. Yes, there is food and fresh air a plenty, but you don’t have to do the cooking. Restaurants strewn throughout Salt Lake Valley provide the patio, the umbrella, the fresh air and sometimes even the citronella candles. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy. A patio (from the Spanish word patio, meaning “back garden” or “backyard”) is an outdoor space generally used for dining or recreation and is typically paved, but sometimes may be out on a

20 getaway SALT LAKE CITY, PROVO & PARK CITY

large deck. During summer months, patio dining is a favorite way to take in the fresh air and summer ambiance while enjoying drinks, conversation and fun cuisine.

Popular around the world, from the Middle East to Australia to Europe and across the U.S., veranda, terrace and garden dining provide a cross-cultural, comfortable, seasonal dining experience. And in Salt Lake City, kicking back on the patio is a favorite, no matter the type of food you prefer. A Salt Lake favorite is Ruth’s Diner, up Emigration Canyon. The creekside patio has seasonal decor, little lights, pots of flowers and large trees, but best of all, you sit right at the foot of the

mountain. It’s hard to beat scenery like that.

Salt Lake Valley enjoys views of the majestic Wasatch Range to the east and the Oquirrh Range to the west, and other times the view opens to surrounding shops and city hustle. Some restaurants have family-friendly patios, while others are more of a bar atmosphere complete with live bands and alcohol. A romantic evening. A relaxing Sunday brunch. A night kicking back listening to music under the stars. Summer options abound. Read the following highlights to pinpoint which patio dining experience you want to try first. It’s time to enjoy the high points of summer in Salt Lake and patio dining grabs the spotlight.


Snowbird

Escape the valley heat and dine in the beautiful surroundings of the Wasatch Mountains at Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort. Featuring patio dining with a wide array of choices from Italian to pizza and Sunday Brunch, Snowbird offers lunch and dinner options for every taste.

Come play and refuel at the Bird! 9600 East Little Cottonwood Canyon 801-933-2222 | www.snowbird.com

Caffe Molise

The patio at Caffe Molise is an oasis in downtown Salt Lake. Greenery, flowers, and the trickling of the fountain make you forget you’re in the heart of the city. On Friday evenings, nothing can beat sitting on the patio, savoring the rustic cuisine of Caffe Molise, sipping Prosecco, and listening to live jazz. With it’s central downtown location and size (6,000 square feet), the patio is a perfect setting for weddings, corporate functions, and private events. 55 West 100 South | 801 364-8833 www.caffemolise.com

Meditrina

Meditrina Small Plates and Wine Bar is a casual, eclectic eatery specializing in playful fusion cuisine. The patio is strewn with lights and surrounded by the onsite gardens containing herbs, heirloom tomatoes, and other unique vegetables and fruits used in the menus. This summer, the chef is featuring a new pergola with a chef’s tasting menu in the garden. This custom menu will be available once a month or upon request with either a communal feel or a party of up to 10. 1394 South West Temple | 801-485-2055 www.meditrinaslc.com

Ruth’s Diner

Featuring three levels of outdoor seating, a variety of live music and the perfect atmosphere for any meal- day or night- Ruth’s Diner has been the premiere patio for dining in Salt Lake City for over 30 years. The canyon setting makes for the perfect afternoon drive and surrounding trees and beautiful Utah mountains add a whole new dimension to patio dining. 4160 Emigration Canyon Road 801-582-5807 | ruthsdiner.com

Log Haven Log Haven’s most popular outdoor dining spot is located at the base of a breathtaking waterfall. With 360 degree views of the Wasatch National Forest, the patio provides a memorable backdrop for dining. Dog Days of Summer is held in an adjacent hillside, where diners with well-behaved canine companions will be seated and can order from Log Haven’s seasonal menu. 6451 East Millcreek Canyon Road 801-272-8255 | www.log-haven.com

Broiler

Located near the University of Utah, The Market Street Broiler has an appealing shaded brick patio that has an intimate and romantic feel & is typically full during warm weather months.

RUTH’S DINER

F

or 81 years, this beloved Utah icon has reached a remarkable milestone as the second oldest Restaurant in Utah. Unfortunately, Ruth didn’t live to see it. She passed away in November of 1989 at the age of 94. She was a great storyteller and spirited woman whose language could make a gangster blush. In 1930, she started the diner as Ruth’s Hamburgers. After many years of flipping burgers downtown, Ruth’s building was sold and demolished. So, she bought a Salt Lake Trolley Car and moved it up Historical Emigration Canyon where she reopened in 1949. Ruth built an apartment

onto the back of her trolley car (it’s now the lower dining room) and lived on the property alone with her little Chihuahua dogs for almost 40 years. The extensive menu offers American Comfort food, serving breakfast until 4 p.m., and lunch and dinner 7 days a week. Ruth’s breakfast selections include Ruth’s famous mile-high biscuits served with country gravy, pecan cinnamon roll French toast, corned beef hash and eggs, numerous versions of eggs Benedict and all your breakfast favorites. Lunch selections include maple BBQ salmon salad, Ruth’s burgers, a variety of specialty sandwiches

and salads, and entrees for our vegetarian and vegan friends. Dinners include specialty salads, sandwiches, Ruth’s burgers, and entrees like, pot roast, raspberry chicken, fresh salmon, pork tenderloin and Grandma Claire’s baked Mac and Cheese. Ruth’s Diner is located at 4160 Emigration Canyon Road, 2 miles east of the Hogle Zoo and just 10 minutes from downtown Salt Lake City.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to host the All-Star game this year; it’s a great event for Salt Lake City as well as the Bees.” Brian Prutch, Director of Corporate Sponsorship for the Salt Lake Bees.

F

or the first time in Triple-A All-Star Game history, Minor League Baseball’s biggest midsummer event will return to a ballpark for a second visit. Spring Mobile Ballpark, home of the Salt Lake Bees, will host the 2011 Triple-A All-Star Game after also hosting the event in 1996. Since the inaugural game in 1988, the Triple-A All-Star Game has become a summer staple of the highest classification of Minor League Baseball. Hosted by the Buffalo Bisons at New York’s Pilot Field, the Triple-A midsummer classic brought out 19,500 baseball fans that were treated to the American League affiliate All-Stars’ defeat of the National League All-Stars 2-1. On July 10, 1996, the Triple-A All-Star game made its first trip to the Wasatch Front, hosted by the Buzz at what was then Franklin Quest Field. The National League

48 getaway SALT LAKE CITY, PROVO & PARK CITY

defeated the American League 2-1. The 15,500 hometown fans in attendance watched future Major League All-Star Todd Walker of the Buzz hit a solo home run in the fourth to earn the award for PCL Star of the Game. Much has changed since that summer day nearly 15 years ago in Salt Lake City. The Buzz changed names to the Stingers, and the Stingers changed names back to the original Bees. The stadium also underwent a name change, from Franklin Quest Field to Spring Mobile Ballpark. The Triple-A American Association ceased operations, changing the All-Star format from National League affiliates versus American League affiliates to Pacific Coast League versus International League. Much like Major League Baseball, the winner of the Triple-A All-Star Game now determines which league champion will be given the

distinction of the home team during the Triple-A National Championship Game taking place at the end of the season. While some things have changed, there are things that make the Triple-A All-Star Game remain a constant. The game still features some of baseball’s brightest stars. It’s a place where Derek Jeter, Chase Utley, Alfonso Soriano, Adam Dunn, Chipper Jones, Jim Thome, Pedro Martinez, Mike Lowell, Paul Konerko and Mike Piazza, among many others, showcased their skills before becoming some of the most recognizable names in the sport. It is also an event that brings the baseball fan out in everyone. In its 23 years of existence, the All-Star Game has been watched live by more than 300,000 fans, with thousands more watching at home or listening on the radio. The Triple-A All-Star game is still a place where the best players from


Salt Lake are recognized by the fans and opposing managers for their abilities. In the 16 years since Triple-A baseball returned to Salt Lake, 29 players have represented the team as a Triple-A All-Star, among them are Brian Raabe, Todd Walker, Chad Rupp, Robb Quinlan, Jose Molina, Howie Kendrick, Brandon Wood and Mark Trumbo. In 2008 in Louisville, Bees third baseman Matt Brown earned Top Star of the PCL honors, the first time a Salt Lake Player had won the award since Walker won in 1996. Aside from the All-Star Game, Salt Lake will also host an array of family-friendly events during the week. An All-Star Concert featuring Chris Isaak and Blues Traveler will take place at Spring Mobile Ballpark on Saturday, July 9. The Triple-A AllStar Home Run Derby, which will feature participants from local high schools as well as three power hitters from the PCL and IL, will take place on Monday, July 11. Earlier this spring, every high school baseball team in Utah was invited to send a hitter to compete in a home run derby following a Bees game. The

All told, Salt Lake City expects over 20,000 visitors to come to Spring Mobile Ballpark over the five-day event, bringing exposure to the city, the ballpark and the Salt Lake Bees. Fans wishing to attend the festivities, including the All-Star Concert, Home Run Derby, All-Star Luncheon and All-Star Game can purchase tickets by logging on to slbees.com, visiting the Spring Mobile Ballpark box office or by calling 801-325-BASE. For more information regarding all of these events, please visit slbees.com.

two victors, Sam Hall of Bonneville High and Kayden Porter of Spanish Fork High, won the event and now have the opportunity to face off against the rising stars in baseball. Fans that want to meet their favorite players are invited to attend the free All-Star Workout and Fan Autograph Session happening on Tuesday, July 12. Prior to the main event on July 13, players and coaching staffs will be honored during an All-Star Luncheon held at EnergySolutions Arena. The luncheon will also feature a keynote address given by former Angel and Major League Hall-of-Famer Rod Carew. The 24th Annual Triple-A All-Star Game will take place on July 13, once again featuring the best players in Triple-A. Each team will be composed of players voted on by fans, media and team managers and executives. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to host the All-Star game this year; it’s a great event for Salt Lake City as well as the Bees,” said Brian Prutch, Director of Corporate Sponsorship for the Salt Lake Bees.

omen of Africa are among the poorest and most disadvantaged in the world and yet, because of the significant absence of the men in the household, they are expected to fend for the family. Fifty-two percent of women in Africa are either unemployed or underemployed mainly due to cultural barriers and lack of education. International aid programs have failed to address these fundamental issues that have impeded women from progressing economically, and thus it has become imperative to “teach the women how to fish instead of giving them ‘the fish.’” One way of doing so has been to encourage women to utilize the skills they already have to create traditional art and crafts in order to alleviate their economic status by marketing their wares in foreign markets using fair-trade means. A Gift To Africa) is a company that was registered in 2005 to assist women all over Africa in marketing (particularly high-end) handmade, fairly traded art and crafts made by women of Africa.

54 getaway SALT LAKE CITY, PROVO & PARK CITY

Since 2010, the company has also been approached by other organizations in South America, India and Eastern Europe to assist in marketing products made in those countries. A Gift To Africa purchases directly from the women in Africa who produce high-end art and crafts and then sells them in the USA, primarily to retail establishments (gift shops, fair-trade shops, jewelry stores, museum gift stores, etc.) and also to the consumer directly. At present, the company has handmade jewelry, stone sculptures, textiles, baskets and other handmade unique home and office products. The company markets its products through wholesale trade shows; its showroom; its web site (www.agift2africa.com); other web sites and also directly to the consumers at major events, fundraisers, street fairs, conferences and other community or women’s events. The CEO of the company also engages in public speaking about women in Africa and fair trade and capitalizes on that to promote

the company to its target clients (medium- to high-income professional persons aged 25 and above). The company conducts workshops in its studio in producing various African crafts and also manufactures some items in its showroom for sale at ArtSpace Commons.

GRACIE’S

S

alt Lake’s first and only “gastropub,” a British term for a public house which specializes in high-quality food a step above the more basic “pub grub.” Gracie’s has a large selection of sandwiches, salads and appetizers but they are unlike any you’ve had before.

You owe it yourself to try Chef Sean’s lemon-steamed halibut—it melts in your mouth. His is not the typical “Bar Food”

yet the menu is very reasonably priced. Every Saturday & Sunday between 10am–2pm Gracie’s serves an amazing Brunch— a definite don’t miss when you’re in Salt Lake. At Gracie’s the two bars are fully stocked with the best of the top shelf liquors, microbrews and an amazingly comprehensive wine collection. The specialty cocktails are mixtures that you can only get in Utah and only at Gracie’s. Gracie’s has two patios providing spectacular views of the Salt Lake skyline with majestic mountains in the background. With 20 screens

boasting all major sports packages, Gracie’s is a great place to catch your game while you are in Salt Lake. Wednesday through Saturday you can enjoy live music and Gracie’s game room has pool tables, darts, video games, free shuffle board, even the classic corn toss game.

Salt Lake Breweries

Bohemian BREWERY Originally from Czechoslovakia, our family brings the old world tradition of brewing beer... no... brewing Lagers to America. The Bohemian Brewery brews by the German Purity Law (Reinheitsgebot) and brews onlt Lagered beer. Unlike young British Style Ales which are only allowed to ferment for 2-3 weeks at higher temperatures, we ferment our Lagers at just above freezing for a minimum of 8 weeks allowing natural carbonization to occur, giving a crisp, clean finish with a full-bodied beer.

Red Rock Opened in 1994, Red Rock Brewery has created some of Utah’s most award-winning beers. Initially viewed as providing beer and hand-crafted soda for Red Rock Brewing Company in Salt Lake and later

for Red Rock Junction in Park City, the brewery has expanded to provide on-tap beers to other bars and restaurants throughout the area.

Uintah BREWING Uinta Brewing Company embarked upon its mission of brewing world class, fullflavored, craft-brewed beer in the winter of 1993. Uinta Brewing Company was named after the Uinta Mountain Range, the only major East-West running mountain range in the continental United States. Uinta has broadened its market and can be found in 22 states from coast-tocoast, and has even ventured to other countries around the world.

Epic BREWING COMPANY EPIC is Utah’s first brewery since prohibition to brew exclusively full strength beer. EPIC

t s e f Brew

handcrafts and carefully bottles its unique product in 22-ounce bottles, perfect for sharing or a long savour, solo style. EPIC Brewing Company creates high-quality, fresh and extremely flavorful beer in small quantities with unending varieties. EPIC uses only the finest malts from the US and Europe, intense hops and triple filtered water. Discover natural variations of taste, from sweet malt, citrus, pine, oak, smoke to chocolate, coffee, vanilla to cinnamon, to most anything epicurean you can imagine.

Squatters Although much has changed (now three locations and a microbrewery), we remain firmly dedicated to our original goal; provide our customers world-class handcrafted beer and food in a warm, friendly environment.
