It was a small scene at a local coffee house (yay for me and hot chocolate,) and I met a lot of eclectic people. I met a former minister for the United church who gave that up, wrangled horses and now works at a landscaper. I met a 60+ jazz bass player and also got to chat to my kick boxing instuctor OUT of her workout clothes. Always interesting to see how people dress up in "real life." She's a lot more...funky than I would have thought.
There were also a million people downtown. I was tempted to stroll down with the rest of humanity and watch the lights be lit but it was rather insane. I'll have to do it later this holiday season. I have admittedly limited experience of Christmas in other cities but I can't imagine few cities deck themselves out better than Salt Lake City. (Even if there aren't candy displays anymore in the ZCMI windows.)
Anyone wanna come see the lights?
