    One wonders if the City Creek billboards featuring strapless gowns and alcohol will be visible during Conference.

    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.

    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.

    City Creek isn't the only option for downtown. People won't starve on Sunday.

    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.

    Out of towners have to eat. How can they close the food court?

    Will they do the same for other religious/faith gatherings?

    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.
