Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes and City Dogs at Twilight

Tonight, Salt Lake City is honored to host Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes at the always-free Twilight Concert Series, and City Dogs will be there once again.

As usual, we’ll have the best deal at Twilight, the Five Dollar Rockstar Deal–which is a Rockstar energy drink and a hotdog for only $5. We’ll also be serving beer brats, Italian Sausages, cream-filled dessert cake Dillos from SLC’s Cakewalk Baking and vegan, organic, raw chocolate ice cream from SLC’s Chocolate Conspiracy.

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes’ biggest hit was the theme to Where the Wild Things Are, called “Home.”

We want to highlight another song, however, called “Let’s Win,” by Alexander Ebert, the band leader of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes.  The video was shot here in beautiful Salt Lake City in February when band was in town to support environmental activist Tim DeChristopher during his trial. If you missed the rallies and marches, here’s a good chance to get a taste. Keeping up the radically good vibes, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes played an intimate show at the Peaceful Uprising warehouse last night as a fundraiser–it was tons of fun.

So, we’ll see you tonight (we’re in the northwest corner of Pioneer Park, around 400 West 300 South!). Here’s “Let’s Win.”

City Dogs and Decemberists tonight at Twilight–July, July, indeed

We’re so excited the Decemberists are playing tonight at the Twilight Concert Series, which, as you know, is always free. Door open at 5 p.m.–come early to avoid lines.

Come to City Dogs to get the sweetest deal at Twilight–The Five Dollar Rockstar Deal. That’s a hotdog and Rockstar energy drink for only $5.

We’ll also be stocked with beer brats, Italian sausages, deliciously chilled Dillos from Salt Lake City’s Cakewalk Baking Company and raw, organic, vegan chocolate ice cream from Salt Lake City’s Chocolate Conspiracy.

You can find City Dogs in the northwest corner of Pioneer Park, closest to the corner of 400 West and 300 South. Just look for the disco ball (no joke!). 

City Dogs at the Twilight Concert Series

It is so that time again; time for Salt Lake City’s premier music event of the year, the Twilight Concert Series. City Dogs will be there, every Thursday, for the next 8 weeks, starting tonight with the bands Explosions in the Sky and No Age.

Admission is always FREE! Doors open at 5 p.m.

Tonight’s menu will include hot dogs, beer brats, Italian Sausages, Dillos from Cakewalk Baking Company, chocolate ice cream from Chocolate Conspiracy, and Rockstar energy drinks so you can party like uh…, well, you get it.

If you haven’t been to the Twilight shows since their move to Pioneer Park then you really must check them out again. The cramped digs at the old location threatened to ruin the whole event for anyone over 20, so I’m happy to say that having an entire city block–Pioneer Park at 400 South 400 West–allows the enormous crowd breathing room. Don’t expect to get too close to the stage, but there’s even room for strollers now in case you want to be a rockin’ momma or daddy.

Today we will be closing at 2:30 p.m. at our normal location, 200 East 300 South, in order to prepare for this massive event on the other side of downtown.

Next week’s show is one of my favorites, The Decemberists.  You won’t want to miss that. For the complete lineup and more information, click here.

City Dogs serving at Sugar House Fireworks

City Dogs will be serving delicious dogs at the Sugar House 4th of July fireworks celebration on Monday at Sugar House Park, 1300 East 2100 South in Salt Lake City.

There will be two locations in the park for food vendors.  There will be a strip of food vendors on the road to the west of the pond, right along 1300 East.  That’s where City Dogs will be.

We will be selling hot dogs, brats, Italian Sausages, Dillos from Cakewalk Baking, and ice cream from Chocolate Conspiracy.

As many as 40,000 attendees are expected. We hope you are one of them! And if you are, come get a dog.

Get $1 off Dillos

Special today: get $1 off on a scrumptious Dillo when you spend $5. 

Dillos are gourmet, amazing snack desserts made by Salt Lake City’s own Cakewalk Baking Company. 

Come get lunch but save room for dessert! 

Now serving Cakewalk Bakery’s Dillos-special today

It’s going to be a beautiful day and to celebrate City Dogs is lowering the price and introducing super-delicious Dillos, those most-famous desert cakes by Salt Lake City’s Cakewalk Baking Company.

Cakewalk was voted “Best Desserts and Sweets” by City Weekly readers in the Best of Utah 2011. Here’s what CW has to say about Dillos.

Don’t call them Twinkies or the corporate Big Brother might hear you and send legal threats to Cakewalk [Baking Company]! Cakewalk’s Dillos are more than just a faithful and animal-free reproduction of the classic cream-filled pillow; Cakewalk improves on the classic by creating them to actually taste like craft-made pastry (while maintaining all the junk-food goodness). Cakewalk’s array of animal-free cupcakes, dessert breads, cookies and muffins are all similarly uncompromising in their deliciousness and creativity. If you can’t imagine baking without butter, check out Cakewalk and be amazed.

Full disclosure: I actually wrote that paragraph in my previous job at City Weekly, but it was the thousands of voters who put Cakewalk on top.

Today at City Dogs, get a Dillo for just $2 more (usual price is $3) when you order any other item of $4 or mroe. Don’t worry if the weather gets hot; we’ll have them chilled. Come claim your square of grass and have a beautiful lunch on the corner of 200 East 300 South.
