Honest City 2011

Just how honest are Salt Lakers?

In an event that is part marketing stunt/part social experiment, the makers of Honest Tea are setting out to various cities across the country to test just how honest our residents are. 

On Monday, September 26th they will set up an “Honest Store” outside Energy Solutions Arena from 9 am to 4 pm. The store will have a cooler full of Honest Tea for $1 each. But here’s the twist: it’s all on the honor system. Nobody will be there collecting the money, so it’s all up to the individual to be honest.

All of the proceeds from the event will be donated to the non-profit City Year.

Chicago was 99% honest, and Boston and Seattle were 97%. Do you think we can beat them? You can follow along on their website.


For all of the fans of the amazing Tea Rose Diner in Murray, you’re in for a treat. They have opened a second restaurant in Midvale at 87 W 7200 S. The building used to house an old, dingy breakfast place, and they have torn everything out and turned it into a beautiful new restaurant.

For those unfamiliar with Tea Rose, they serve quite an unusual menu. They serve some American dishes and make a nice American breakfast, but their specialty is of course their Thai food. They make the spicy level of each dish to order, so be prepared to tell them a number, 1 through 10. But a word to the wise: unless you’re a masochist, don’t order past a two or maybe a three. It is really spicy. It’s also my favorite Thai food in Utah. They do things right here.

Stop by and support their new location. They are currently doing a soft opening and their grand opening will be July 11th.
