While I didn't have much time to explore during my first trip to Salt Lake City and not enough time to do my normal research - I did eat pretty darn well.

Just a little reminder before we get in to my last Alt Summit post!
Yes, it's true. Fantastic people do attend Alt Summit and sadly, I only met a tiny snippet of them.
