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!

Episode 35: Let’s get Chocolate Wasted!

Standard

Nothing is sweeter than pure, unadulterated, swiss chocolate! The New Utah’s guest this week brought some to share!! Jennie Hales is founder and owner and mind-blowing creator of The Truffle Cottage. Based in Utah County, they don’t have a store front, but their popularity is surging because of their presence at Comic Cons around the country. You can also purchase their nerd-themed chocolates on their website too! Next events include our own FanX in March, ECCC, and many more!

Jennie tells us an amazing story of Carrie Fisher and The Truffle Cottage chocolate. In honor of Carrie, through the last of the month, they are still donating a percentage of Star Wars chocolate  sales to the Depression and Bi-Polar Alliance. SO BUY ALL THE CHOCOLATES!

This event was created in the super conservative town of Provo to create inclusion for a community that often feels excluded.

Ep. 10 Stalking Kitchen Eighty Eight and dirty whore mouths.

Standard

Episode 10 is in your face, unlike a stalker waiting around the corner for you… That was creepy a little creepy, huh. Sound quality issues aside… we had a great show!

We were excited to have Brandon Clark, the owner of the SUPER delicious and fresh Kitchen Eighty-Eight food truck. It was great hearing his back story, his passion for food and what he is doing with that passion, going to school at the CIA (that’s the prestigious Culinary Institute of America) although it is fun to just say “CIA.” If you are in the in Utah County area, check out Brandon’s fresh and perfectly cooked meat and potato offerings. Find out where he will be on Instagram @kitcheneightyeight or Facebook Kitchen Eighty Eight

The UFC® fights are punching and kicking their way to Utah for the first time! With 12 fights and one local fighter, Court McGee, it looks to be a great round of fights. Despite what the guys say about being a lack lustre fight card… let’s be honest, anyone who is brave enough to get their ribs kicked and their face punched is a great fight card!

UFC Fight Mcgee Utah

This weekend is the Taste of the Wasatch at Solitude Ski resort. Tickets are $105 and the event will feature 50 Utah chefs! That alone is worth the price, but to add to the awesomeness 100% of the money will go to fight Utah hunger.

The Salt Lake Comic Con sponsored Zombie walk is August 7th. Come dressed up, get dressed up there, and wander the streets. If you bring a bag of non-perishable food for the Utah Food bank you will receive a Thursday pass to Comic Con (Sept.1st-3rd).

The New Utah talks about how two Utah cities make the list for top places for entrepreneurship! Livibility.com teamed with BusinessClimate.com and Entrepreneur magazine to rate the best cities in America for being an entrepreneur. Provo rated at #3 and Salt Lake City at #12!

And hear Chris not let Josh be right… even though he was. Thanks Harry-It Winston!

Kickstarter Utah: Armored Core™ RTS

Standard

Episode 9 brings to you a board game by local designers, Bad Crow Games, Armored Core™ RTS – A Real Time Strategy Board Game.

We have two game designers on the podcast, so they jumped right into the pro’s and con’s of this board game. First is that it is awesome they got the rights to the Armored Core video game to create a board game. The video is great because it shows the layout of the game and we are curious if the footage is from previous games or if they made it themselves, either way, impressive.

We noticed this group has a broken link for their Facebook page on the kickstarter. Once you find it though, one of the concerns we had about rules are currently posted on their Facebook and that is pretty helpful.

We have questions about licensing, if the design will change, and just how simple it is. We do like that they have backed 12 projects already. This is the first kickstarter we have seen with lofty backer amounts. $75 gets you a core set and it just goes up from there. The ultimate bundle is gone, and the ultimate bundle extension pack only has a few left.

Armored Core Board Game

Their goal was $75,000 and they are currently exceeding that at $239,845. They are projected at almost $1,000,000. Will that bring about any upgrades? We think it needs lasers!!

As we re-iterate in each episode, as a owner of a kickstarter it is always good to support another kickstarter and be part of the community.

Ep. 9 The Creepy Toxic Algae’s in the farm… or is it?

Standard

Episode 9 is upon you like the algae in Utah Lake!

Our kickstarter for this week is a local board game, Armored Core™ RTS – A Real Time Strategy Board Game by Bad Crow games. We were excited when we pulled it up but the opinions took a quick turn…

Some great Utah events in line for you this week! Including the Halloween in July party on Thursday 28th as well as Eve 6 on Friday the 29th, and both are at Metro Bar.

Utah is also hosting the Great Salt Lake Fringe Festival! Modeled after the massive festival that takes place in Edinburgh every year, there will be plenty of performance artists, musicians, magicians, and theatre performances worth seeing. Some highlights include; aerialists, an all female Othello modeled after Mad Max, and even Fed Up Fairy Tales, a modern take on fairy tales. It is also awesome that 100% of ticket sales go BACK to the performers!!

The Kings English book store  will be on hand to sell and host (?) an event on the 28th (apologies the event location is wrong in the podcast). Meet and listen to author and survivor, Rhonda Stapley. She was one of Ted Bundy’s victims and has written a book called, “The Attack, Escape, and PTSD that changed my Life.” The event is free and the official location is: at the West Jordan Library and Events Center: Viridian Events Center 8030 S. 1825 W. West Jordan, UT 84088.

August 1st is the start of the Tour of Utah, which is essentially Utah’s version of Tour De France. The cyclists will start in Southern Utah and work their way up over a course of 7 days to Park City. We aren’t really sure what Josh is talking about… do you?

This week we had a lot to cover in News. Utah Lake was taken over by a toxic algae and the effects stretched farther than just Utah County and had local farmers, including Peterson Farms, up in arms because their crops are their lively-hood. Check out a video by the Salt Lake Tribune showing it creeping into a harbour at Utah Lake by clicking HERE.

Sen. Jim Debakis is putting down his foot and *fingers crossed* getting ready for a fight to change and privatize the Utah liqour laws. We’re here to cheer you on sir!

Real Salt Lake Re-instates Gordon Monson, the Gay Games could make their home in Salt Lake in 2022, and the fight continues for the Bears Ears Monument.

We also learned a little about the inventor of the television, Philo T. Farnsworth, who is local to Utah. Not only did he invent the television from just an idea of lines in the dirt from beets, but he also worked on night vision and tried to solve the puzzle of cold fusion before his death.

Kickstarter Utah: Fireflies Ear Buds

Standard

It’s TRULY wire-free earbuds and yes we have some questions!

Ep. 8 Utah Kickstarter is based out of Salt Lake City and has already WELL Surpassed its goal of $20,000. The Fireflies Ear Buds are “truly wire-free.” This seems to be a very well developed technology. There is nothing worse than getting tangled in a bunch of headphone cords and the Fireflies seem to be the answer! The kickstarter page is well laid out, gives a great over view of the technology that is being used, and shows what is included such as a recharging station, silicone bud tips, and wings for your ears.

We liked that they offered a $1 support level as well as an early bird package, which looks like it was extended and has lots of interest. We do wonder about tech support on this item for those that have backed it and receive one as a backer.

fireflies ear buds wire free

With a goal of $20,000 and already backed at $424,060 with 15 days still to go, we do expect to see a buyer/investor pick up the Fireflies Earbuds and put them in stores in the future.

As we re-iterate in each episode, as a owner of a kickstarter it is always good to support another kickstarter and be part of the community.
