Sigh!  I can't seem to shake this goombah/whatever so, sadly, I won't be able to attend tomorrow.  I am simply exhausted, even though the symptoms have cleared up, so no big worry.

However, our dear middleagedhousewife will be there wearing the orange.  Thank you MAHW!

Enjoy the Oasis and each other's great company.  Also, maybe gather some ideas for a late February get together.

Kos on, SLC!

I'll be there in spirit.

The Oasis is delightful.

And there is ample, free parking.

The atmosphere and food are both wonderful.  The Oasis Cafe building is also the home of the Golden Braid Bookstore, a browsing delight.  

Books, great food, and you.  Sounds like a fabulous way to cheer in the New Year.

The Oasis is a tad pricey for dinner, for me anyway.  However, they serve lunch until 5:00 PM.  The menu is vegetarian friendly and diverse.  

The lunch menu can be viewed here

The Oasis also offers a huge variety of beverages which are reasonably priced, view here.

For those with both the penchant and the budget, there is also a full bar service, view here.  Actually, the bar prices are quite reasonable.

Lastly, although not listed separately, there are wonderful desserts for those who would enjoy good company and perhaps some panna cotta:

"I have a happy place.  Its name is panna cotta at Oasis Cafe.  This was the best dessert I've had since I moved to Salt Lake City.  My mum and I ordered it and it totally blew our socks off.  The softly set and creamy Italian pudding is silky smooth and not overly sweet, which for me is the perfect dessert.  The Oasis version is served infused with lavender accompanied by strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, honeyed ricotta cheese and pistachio crumbles.  I am now planning to go back to my happy place as soon as possible.

Well, back to some restful reading and chicken broth with lots of fresh garlic and veggies.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
