Ski Utah's Fat Flake Festival
Most of the west has been skiing already and the weather seems to be cooperating if you're going to ski this week but a ski season needs an official start. Each year there is a BBQ that a few of my friends host. People come out of the woodwork, many of whom I only see at that party (hard to recognize people from afar with goggles on as they holla and drop into powder chutes). Perhaps you've got a good way to start things off with your ski partners.
Besides a good old fashioned sacrificial bonfire the next best way to kick things off is with a party like the Ski Utah Fat Flake which is this coming Saturday.
The Triple F as a few locals are calling it will be a full meal deal - rail jam, local pros to sign autographs, bands, beer, DJ's and my favorite - an 80's costume party.
Since one piece fart bags are back in fashion just grab one from Tramdock.com like the DC Abbe, (no, it's not the Abba but is should be) throw those florescent Smith Goggles on your lid and you're a shoe in to win the contest.
The event is in downtown Salt Lake City at the Gallivan Center. It all kicks off at 4pm with the rail jam from 4:30-6, 80's costume contest at 8:30, The SPAZMATICS will play with DJ KNUCKLZ taking over after that. It'll be a party to remember, or not if you visited the beer garden enough.
