SLC's Great Gift: Free Parking
How do we know the holiday season is here? By the red bow-bowed bags on the downtown parking meter. The city waives parking fees from Thanksgiving to New Year's. Hallelujah.
Sending Christmas cards is one of the most tedious and rewarding traditions we have. But it's gotten more complicated these days, your card has to say so much about you. Hip, religious, secular, sincere, recyclable, who are you, really? Not to worry. Frosty Darling (177 E. Broadway, SLC, 801-532-4790) has a dependable card collection, covering sentiments from whimsical to heartwarming. Trifecta Design (1940 S. 1000 East, SLC, 801-364-4606) has a new line of cards you can plant. And proceeds form adorable animal-themed cards ordered from Angel Canyon support Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab.
