Acoustic Music at the Hog Wallow

Acoustic MusicNamed after a rapid on the Green River, The Hog Wallow Pub is located kitty-corner to the historic Old Mill ruin at the base of Big Cottonwood Canyon, renowned for some of the best snow on earth. It is the latest reincarnation of the oldest and most notorious bar in the Cottonwood Heights area.

Since it’s opening, Hog Wallow has received a number of awards including City Search’s “Best Outdoor Bar,” City Weekly’s “Best Neighborhood Bar” and “Best Escape From Downtown,” and Salt Lake Magazine’s “Best Suburban Bar.”

*Is it open mike or open mic? I’ve seen it spelled both ways. So I checked my dictionary, which lists mike as the preferred spelling, and mic as a variant. Other dictionaries I consulted didn’t include mic at all. Still unsatisfied, I checked Bryan A. Garner’s Dictionary of Modern American Usage (1998 edition). Garner argues, “Whereas mike more immediately suggests the pronunciation, mic more immediately suggests the longer form. All in all, mic might be considered preferable.”

A tad light on the square footage, but this music scene certainly isn’t lacking. The stage is set at the front of a large garage, with adequate floor space and a few risers in the back. A small courtyard outside provides extra standing room when the inside exceeds maximum capacity. The building isn’t state-of-the-art, but the sound system and lighting is quite good.
