Oasis Cafe in Salt Lake City
About a month and a half ago, I was discussing with friends, the possibility of having a big party for my 50th B Day. I have gorgeous memories of my 40th which my long time buddy Dana organized. This time around, I thought a trip to Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty in Utah would be very cool. This is an earthwork I and millions have studied but not visited. Aandrea Stang helped me gather my plans and the logistics were set. The morning of, I met with belly dancer Etsuko Abe, her daughter singer Marina and S Jetty specialist Hikmet Loe of Westminster College. We met at Oasis Cafe, 151 S 500 E, SLC UT 84102 and had a feast. I asked the server what was the most popular dish and she announced four dishes. PERFECT! We'll have one of each and share we did! Blueberry Oven Baked Pancake was the one that took the show! In three hours or so, Etsuko, Marina and I were at the Jetty, finishing off the rest of the pancake left overs and staring in awe at the Jetty. Smithson kicks ass!!!
