So last Saturday I ended up working from 7am to 2pm. Todd had flown in to work as well in Salt Lake and so he hung out in the hotel and he worked a little, had breakfast at Ihop that was across the parking lot from hotel and then he met me at my location to see the Harley shop.
Once I got off work, we drove up to Park City to show Todd around. I had been there before years ago but I wanted him to see it. Its the coolest little ski town where also Olympics have taken place there. It was a nice drive and we listened to some live bands performing off the main street. We got a frozen coffee drink and just walked up and down the town. We also had to stop at the Walmart on the way out of Park City to buy a new pillow because the hotel pillows were awful!
When we arrived back in Salt Lake, we drove downtown and saw the Mormon Temple and all the buildings associated with Latter Day Saints. Last time I was there , I also visited inside the Tabernacle Choir building and visitor center. It was very interesting. Todd didn't want to get out of the car because of parking, etc so we just drove around. We stopped to eat at a very very popular place called the Red Iguana. They are 2 locations within just a few blocks of each other and it was a 45 minute wait for both locations. I ordered a combo platter and when I got to my enchilada, I cut it open to eat the insides ( lol - I was full and just wanted to taste the meat inside) , and there was a small hair with food cooked on each end. Honestly yall, I used to be a restaurant manager so I know it can easily be done. I cant think of anyone that would purposefully add a hair to food. The heat will kill any germs so it doesn't gross me out. I just calmly told the waiter and I told him that I didn't need to be comped for it. They did anyway but it wasn't necessary because I ate everything else on my plate.
So speaking of food- Salt Lake has a local chain called Crown Burger that is a must! It started by a Greek family and they have a large variety of things to choose from. The burger comes topped with a piece of pastrami and it was so yummy! I subscribe to Cowboys and Indians magazine and there's actually an article specifically mentioning the Crown Burger. Very Cool!!
What was really nice is that a work friend was also in Salt Lake supporting our larger location in Salt Lake. She lives in California and I got to know her very well many years ago when I did the Cali Conversion. We met up for dinner on Thursday in downtown Salt lake at Squatters Brewery before she headed to airport to fly home.
I flew home last Friday and I was so happy to be with my dogs and my bed and my husband. No place like home!
