Libretti and Libations :: Utah Opera's Aida

Under Current :: Egyptian Escape

Together with Salt Lake Magazine, Utah Opera is hosting another round of Libretti and Libations for their upcoming production of Verdi's Aida -- and that means another chance to win tickets by participating in their #UtahOperaSips photo contest. Visit any of the 10 participating Libretti and Libations restaurants and bars, try their Aida-inspired craft cocktail, and post a photo to Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #UtahOperaSips by March 20 to be entered to win a pair of tickets to the Friday, March 18 production of Aida at The Capitol Theatre!

My friend, Chelsea at Heartbeat Nosh and I spent our Saturday trying and photographing a handful Libretti and Libations cocktails and I'll be highlighting them all week here and on Instagram! [@caroline.slcflake] Utah Opera and Salt Lake Magazine's L&L is such a fun partnership - it's so fun and exciting to look forward to seeing what some of the best bars and restaurants around town come up with each opera. It's such a great chance to try somewhere new and get an introductory experience to Salt Lake's thriving art scene in the process!
