 +==== Best Jazz Events ====
 +
 +There are two major jazz concert series in Salt Lake City. One is Red Butte Garden
 +Summer Concerts (amazing thing about these concerts is that Red Butte Garden is
 +private property, so you can have a dinner with wine on the grass), another is Jazz at
 +Sheraton. Sometimes good jazz is performed at the University of Utah's Kingsbury
 +Hall.
