The ParkCity Film Series presents an exceptional documentary straight from the reels of the Sundance Film Festival, Miss Representation. The film addresses the challenges girls face in our contemporary culture, and the message that their value lies more in their fleeting physical attraction than in lasting intellectual or leadership capacities. Miss Representation measures the magnitude of that phenomenon. The film interweaves stories from teenage girls with provocative interviews from the likes of Condoleezza Rice, Lisa Ling, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Rosario Dawson, Dr. Jackson Katz, Dr. Jean Kilbourne, and Gloria Steinem. The ParkCity Film Series offers a free screening as a part of the Reel Community Series. Sundance is known for its engaging and, sometimes, controversial documentaries. This selection offers viewers an opportunity to take a peekat how women are treated by the media, and how it affects contemporary society. You can find out more at www.parkcityfilmseries.com .
If you’re looking for something a little less cerebral to wrap your head around, get your rockon with the Grammy Award Winning Los Lonely Boys! The ParkCity Performing Arts Foundation brings the Los Lonely Boys to the EcclesCenterstage for a night of Texas-based rock. Their style is a collaboration of blues, rock, soul, and country with a little Tejano peppered in for good measure. Jam your way over to www.ecclescenter.org for ticket information.
Amidst all of the entertainment, you’ll need to find time to eat! There are numerous dining options to explore during your stay in ParkCity; one to checkout on the fine dining side is the local favorite, the Blind Dog Restaurant and Sushi. The Blind Dog offers scrumptious, fresh and innovative sushi selections as well as nightly fresh fish specials. Fish not your thing? That’s fine, as the Blind Dog also has a wide selection of non-fish entrees. You might want to checkout the Blind Dogs proprietor’s famous “Dreamloaf”, or a 12-ounce New YorkStrip served along side Blue Cheese & Mushroom Gratin. If sushi does happen to be what you’re looking for, try the Firecracker Roll, or perhaps their Funky Roll – there’s not a bad choice in the bunch! Paired with a little warm Sake on a chilly winter’s night, it’s the perfect end to a day on the slopes! Visit www.blinddogpc.com to review their menu.
One of my favorite pastimes in Park City is strolling on Main Street, checking out all of the amazing shopping, dining, and art galleries, as well as other unique retail spots. One of my favorite shops is Dolly’s Book Store, located at 510 Main Street in the Historic Main Street District of Park City. Dolly’s is an institution in our little ski town – a true local book shop with the cozy vibe that is missing from some of the larger big box book behemoths. At Dolly’s, you can find popular books listed on the best-seller lists for certain. What makes Dolly’s a gem is the access to selections by local and regional authors exploring the local history of the Park City area. You may also end up making friends with Che, Dolly’s resident cat who lazily lolls around the store,and can be found taking cat naps, or looking for a little scrath under the chin. Dolly’s also offers a variety of toys, gift items and stationary. What’s even better – Dolly’s is adjacent to Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory! As you meander through the aisles filled with books to bury your nose in, you will be tempted by wafts of fresh fudge and caramel apples being artfully created next door. My best advice? Grab a fresh caramel apple, grab a new read from Dolly’s and head over to the nearest park bench, or cozy up to the fire at your luxurious vacation home and enjoy! Visit www.dollysbookstore.com for shop information as well as www.rmcf.com.
