Casey and I went to the twilight concert series at the Gallivan Center the last two Thursdays to enjoy the sounds of Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah and Nada Surf. I don’t know if it was because of where we were sitting, but I had a hard time keeping my eyes on the stage instead of looking at all the bystanders. I got to thinking about how much fun people watching is. I don’t care what people say about Utah, we have diversity. I couldn’t stop looking at people dancing and interacting, it was so entertaining and it made me smile. I saw groups of people that reminded me of myself at different points in my life and I kept expecting to see a long lost friend appear from some chapter in my distant past. I always love seeing people out of their houses enjoying themselves, especially in the summer.
If you enjoy the hobby of people watching, here is a list of my favorite spots in the SLC area for the sport in no particular order.
1. Concerts (preferably outdoors)
3. Ritz Classic Bowling Alley on State Street (most bowling alleys for that matter)
4. Farmer’s Markets
5. Liberty Park (preferably around drum circle time on Sundays)
6. High School Reunions (I am only guessing since I missed my 10 year reunion last weekend)
7. Walking around downtown
