Urban Hike: Historic South Temple plus Bingo Karaoke at The Tavernacle

*** Please be aware of weather conditions and be prepared.  Headlamps likely won't be needed for sight, but might be helpful for visability.  ***

For this event only, we will meet at 6:45 and depart by 7:00 p.m.  Please be on time.

 

Free street parking is available to the north and east of the intersection of 300 E and 300 S.  Metered street parking is available in front of the Tavernacle and a paid lot is on the south side of the street. 

 

South Temple has been Salt Lake City's most prestigious address since the city was first settled. Walking along South Temple today you will see stately mansions, magnificent churches, and impressive clubhouses. Utah Heritage Foundation's Historic South Temple Street Walking Tour Guide contains descriptions of 39 historic buildings from State Street to Virginia Street, a map, and numerous contemporary and historic photos. Completing the tour on foot requires approximately 2 hours and covers a distance of 3.8 miles.   You can find the summary map here and the downloadable guide here

 

Afterwards, we'll gather at The Tavernacle for their bingo and karaoke night beginning at 9:00 p.m.  Yes, you read that right.  It ought to be interesting!  Here's what CityWeekly says: "The Tavernacle’s outstanding karaoke nights are a great mix of no cover, $1 draft beer, games and some of the most talented karaoke singers in  town. Sundays are reserved for straight-up karaoke, but Mondays and  Tuesdays up the ante with bingo. Spectators and singers alike can play  for prizes, with numbers called between singers—everyone’s a winner."
