After Alt Summit I stayed a couple of extra days in Utah to visit my friend Erika. While she and her husband took their ski lessons, I went with some other Alt attendees to Sundance! I'm a huge fan of independent movies, and thankfully been to a handful of film festivals, but Sundance seemed like that elusive film festival that only the cool kids could go to. But just my luck Jeran, whom I met at the Collectively dinner, had an extra ticket! She asked me Saturday morning, and I made like a bandit to my hotel room to pack. By lunch she, Bonnie, Laicie and I were off to Park City.
I loved Park City. It's full of charm and nostalgia. We explored main street and ducked in and out of shops. Luckily for us it was a beautiful day and the weather was relatively warm for this snowy little town.
After our exploration we drove to our movie Boyhood which I'd definitely recommend. Ethan Hawke is plays the role of the father and does a fantastic job evolving with his character. Boyhood is basically about boyhood, but what sets this movie apart from others is that it was filmed over a span of twelve years. So as the movie progresses you literally watch the kids grow up. At first it really plays with your mind because their growth is subtle at first. Then the little girl suddenly had boobs, and I realized, "Oh. yeah. She's growing up. I'm not just crazy." Go check out Boyhood if you get a chance.
For lunch we headed to Table One where we ordered truffle fries and an assortment of meats and pickled yummies. The truffle fries were amazing. AMAZING. But then again, I haven't had a truffle fry that I didn't like. I ordered the pulled pork which definitely didn't disappoint. I ate every last bite of that savory goodness.
