    Cool Things To Do In SLC/PC?

    So, I have a friend that I want to buy a gift certificate for (around $100-150?). Looking for an experience or something fun that he would remember, and I am not quite sure where to look for ideas.
    Hookers and blow in Pioneer Park?
    Anyone have some thoughts?
    An Alamo Brew House theatre type thing would be perfect, but I am pretty sure they donít have those in SLC, but that kind of thing...

    Send him up to the Cliff spa. What can be better than a day playing outdoors at Snowbird followed by a nice sauna steam and cup of tea at the cliff?

    That does sound cool, but I just looked it up and it is really expensive. $375 for one hour.
    While I’m all for a happy ending, I never really did well with massages and manicures. I’ll leave that for the wife.
    Speaking of Heber/Midway, how about scuba diving that thermal cave?

    Brewvies is perfect. I thought the liquor laws would prevent such iniquity from occurring in one place.
    That'll work.
    Thanks, guys

    I did that last year after skiing 4 days of great powder. I sat in the hot tub when it was snowing hard in the open air. Finished up with a sauna and a shower and was completely rejuvenated. I think it was $30 and I told the check in chick it was the best $30 I ever spent.

    That outdoor pool rocks, too. Especially during ski season.

    For $100-150 you can do a punch pass at the Cliff spa. It really is pretty nice after a pow day. But I'm more of a brewvies type of person if I'm being honest.

    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....


    Thanks BCSAR and POWMOW Ski Patrol for rescues

    I'm referring to Wendover, UT. Never been to Wendover, NV with all their degenerate gambling, drinking, drugging, and whatnot.

    When I think "4 Ogdens"....I'm thinking someplace pretty skeezy, like Cincinnati Ohio (?)....maybe someplace very big with significant skeezy elements like Dallas or Atlanta (?)....

    I think of The Ogden of Yore as like 3.2 Ogdens...like, it's got a lot of scuzzers and it's run-down, but you're not necessarily going to accidentally wander into gangs gunfighting or people just hanging out ready to carjack you. Sirens and gunshots all the time....or whatever.
    I don't see Wendover as worse than The Ogden of Yore...so not 4 Ogdens. Maybe 1 Ogden, because whatever, you go there, it's got stuff to do kinda...but it's still kinda a mild..."ew, Wendover"...Wendover Utah seems like a nothing to me. Like 0 Ogdens.

    I guess it's been 3 months and I have to re-explain The Ogden Unit again. The more units, the nastier the place. Neutral is not particularly nasty or nice. Negative units are the opposite of nasty....so negative Ogdens are places that aren't nasty-urban places.

    I guess lets meet back in January for another refresher.
