General Conference weekend should prove to be interesting. I imagine City Creek
will be packed on Saturday and the restaurants and food court should end up with
long lines. But, Sunday will be even more interesting. City Creek stores are
closed on Sunday, except for two restaurants, Texas de Brazil and The Cheesecake
Factory.When Crossroads Mall was open during General Conference
Sundays, the food courts were packed with out of town conference goers getting
lunch and dinner. It will be difficult for the masses to find something to eat
quickly and easily. The two open restaurants are going to be swamped.
Just go down there on sunday. Not as many people then.
I hope City Creek Center blows the socks off all the negative naysayers .....
Will they do the same for other religious/faith gatherings?
Out of towners have to eat. How can they close the food court?
richard:I'm sure they will because there are thousands of non LDS
gatherings that take place in SLC annually. I'm told the Vatican is
thinking of relocating to City Creek.
City Creek isn't the only option for downtown. People won't starve on
Richard Larson,As soon as another religious gathering puts 21,000
people downtown and in need of accommodation, I'm sure City Creek will be
happy to oblige.
The big question is how much business will the Teavana store do over LDS
Conference weekend?! Black, green, white or oolong -- they're all
produced from the same plant and all off limits to faithful Latter-day Saints.
I am stunned that the store has entered the Orem and Salt Lake City marketplace.
One wonders if the City Creek billboards featuring strapless gowns and alcohol
will be visible during Conference.
