Episode 49 K-Pop Fries in your Belly!

Standard

Dear Utah,

There is, dare we say, BETTER Korean fusion food than only Cupbop and it is goes by the name: BumbleBee KBBQ.

Your friends, The New Utah podcast.

This week we were excited to be joined by one of the owners of Bumblebee Korean BBQ, Victor. His brother, who shall not be named, was on a cruise! Bumblebee is getting ready for the opening of their new store in West Valley and we wanted to hear more! We loved that it is a family operation from top to bottom. Did you know that Bumblebee KBBQ is the only Korean-American Fusion in Utah? Now you do! Check them out on Facebook, Instagram and make sure to stop into one of their stores for some K-Pop Fries!

OH! We forgot on the show to talk about how they just made Delish.com list of best wings in every state!

Utah’s One Thing: Jennie Hales, The Truffle Cottage

Standard

At the end of every New Utah interview we like to ask our guests, “What is the one thing that you would tell someone visiting Utah they had to do before leaving?”

Episode 35 guest, Jennie Hales of the Truffle Cottage, told us that someone visiting Utah should go camping at Moon Lake. Located in the High Uintahs in Duchesne County, it is the largest of the high alpine Uinta lakes. (we also hear it is very haunted!!)

Utah’s One Thing: Val Cameron-Walker

Standard

At the end of every New Utah interview we like to ask our guests, “What is the one thing that you would tell someone visiting Utah they had to do before leaving?”

Val Cameron-Walker of Ep.33 told us that her one thing to do in Utah is to head to Brighton in the summer time.  You might be thinking, a ski resort in the summer? Whether you like to hike, bike, or just need a stay-cation. The lifts might not operate, but there are beautiful trails, lakes to dip your toes in, resorts to stay in, and restaurants to enjoy.

Episode 44 Poutine is the Canadian Betos in Utah *UPDATED*

Standard

** WE ARE SAD TO SAY THAT POUTINE YOUR MOUTH HAS MOVED TO THE BEAUTIFUL NORTH WEST**

You know you want to know why we’ve titled this “Poutine is the Canadian Betos in Utah!”

We were SO hungry after our guest Jen, from Poutine Your Mouth, left us on Tuesday! The New Utah loves having unique food guests through our doors and poutine is definitely unique to the United States. Fries, Gravy (vegan at that), and local cheese curds (courtesy Heber Valley Cheese) make up an original bowl of Poutine. However, PYM has gone above and beyond to create their own menu. Listen to Jen talk about how they came about and what their plans are for the future of Poutine Your Mouth. Follow them on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook to find them. No, Chris, that is NOT Poutine IN your mouth.

If you know of a small space, approximately 600 square feet, in downtown SLC let us know so we can help them relocate!!!

It’s LDS conference weekend so avoid downtown Salt Lake if you can. It is also the third annual Utah Gay and Lesbian Wedding Expo by QSaltLake.  Did you know in Utah is one of 29 states where it is LEGAL to discriminate as a business owner against the LGBT community? The Tulip festival at Thanksgiving point starts next week on the 7th (a week early because our weather has been so sporadic)  Did you know Utah has their own winning Women’s Football League team? Check out upcoming events for the Utah Falconz!

April is Autism Awareness. Don’t forget to “Light it up Blue”

Episode 27, Emily Park of Indulge Eats, said the one thing you MUST do while visiting Utah is to go out to the Bonneville Salt Flats to experience the speed racing. She said there is nothing like it.

Utah’s One Thing: Holly Gates-Rohde Paranormal Illumination Society

Standard

At the end of every New Utah interview we like to ask our guests, “What is the one thing that you would tell someone visiting Utah they had to do before leaving?”

We didn’t get her answer on her episode, but our regular guest host and co-founder of the Paranormal Illumination Society, Holly Gates-Rohde of episode 22 (and others) said that the one thing she thinks someone should do before leaving Utah is: a visitor would need to go up any of the canyons in the fall to see the amazing colors. My favorite is Spanish Fork canyon. Or to head up to Kamas in the fall and go to Hi Mountain Drug Store. They have the best burgers and you get to see the amazing fall foliage.

Welcome to the New Year New Utah listeners!!! We hope everyone made it in safely. Sit down, sit down.

Our first guest of 2017 is front man, Vision (aka Derek Rhodes), of Utah’s Own Goth/Metal band, Tragic Black! Which we might add, has been around for 16+ years. We chat with Derek about the evolving club and music scene in Salt Lake City. Remember Confetti’s? Derek and Chris sure do! Have you been to Area 51 lately? Perhaps you should, just for Nostalgia. We get a feel for Tragic Blacks trips around the world and fans in Europe Vs. fans in the U.S.

Vision and Tragic Black have a gig coming up at Metro Music Hall on January 14th! Visit Visions YOU TUBE channel for a taste Tragic Black. You can find them on ITUNES and Spotify too! The New Utah was super stoked he even got in stage makeup for us!!!
