Saturday, Feb. 23
Bigger and better than ever, the event makes an exciting move to The Rail, 235 North 500 West in Salt Lake City. The Texas Hold 'Em charity tournament begins at noon, with the final table at 7 p.m during the party. The Masquerade Party will be held from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. This event is for those 21 and older.
Chase away your wintertime blues and support the Utah Arts Festival just by joining in the Masquerade merriment. Make sure and wear the most fabulous mask you can find, because there are wonderful prizes awarded to the night's most creative looks. Masquerade activities also include just-for-fun casino gaming, memorable music, and delectable dining delights prepared by the talented students of the Art Institute of Salt Lake City.
Plan to save plenty of room for dessert, too. The Girl Scouts of Utah are sponsoring this year's feast-ending treats.

Art & Ten Courses: It's Nata Dozen
I love finding proof that our city is growing up. The latest piece of evidence is between State & Main on 400 S. Once a knife shop, the new Nata Gallery space is part restaurant and part art gallery. The name is sort of a play on "It's not a ___". Abbot & Costello would have a field day with this name. Putting aside the things Nata is not, let's focus on what it is and what it means to our community.
Opening up a business that specializes in just one thing is hard to do – even if it is top-notch quality. Attempting to pull off two concepts, at a high level, is downright challenging. Salt Lakers have grown a refined palate in the past decade –eateries who focus as much attention to taste as they do presentation, ambiance and décor, such as Copper Onion, Palllet, Tin Angel and Forage, are proof of that. Their menus include components I need to google to figure out what they are: that's my signal a dish is going to be good!! Nata is betting our local dining scene is ready for more, by raising the ante beyond the menu to an entirely new dining concept.
