  1. The postponing of shows at the Eccles Theater Downtown was intended to end Thursday of this week but has been extended through Sunday, January 23rd. This postponement includes the scheduled run of ‘Hamilton” which is back in Utah’s capital by popular demand. (fox13now.com)
  2. Fans of SLC’s breakfast diner mainstay Penny Ann’s Cafe will see their beloved restaurant and the complex it’s attached to come under new management as investor/developer Summit Venture Capital Group has announced its purchase of the complex, including its 174 apartments, for $32.3 million. This marks another big development project in the rapidly transforming Ballpark neighborhood. (Utah Business)
  3. As the second location of Pago—a trailblazing fixture of Salt Lake’s dining scene—opens on Main Street where J. Dawgs used to be, owner Scott Evans sees it as an opportunity to get back to basics and offer more causal fare as compared to the flagship Pago at 9th and 9th. (Salt Lake Magazine)
  4. The 2-month-old who was on life support at Primary Children’s Hospital due to COVID-19 could go home soon. Born premature and recently adopted, the baby girl has now spent more of her life in a hospital than at home with COVID being only the most recent battle she has had to face. (KUTV 2News)

We do expect cooler conditions to mix inversions out partially Thursday, but Friday is expected to be better.
