After driving all day, with only a couple of bathroom breaks, I finally reached Salt Lake City around 7 pm. After my pleasant experience with Mexican food in Rapid City, SD, I was in the mood for more. Went on UrbanSpoon and found this place, the Blue Iguana, right downtown. The Enchiladas Amarillas were excellent, the margarita less so. Stick with the lime juice, don’t trust the mix!
After dinner, booked a room in the nicest Holiday Inn Express I’ve ever seen! The rate was only $88.00 (I cried poor, of course). The room seemed more like a W than HI. Lots of modern materials, lots of outlets and USB ports, all the practical stuff a techie traveler could love.
The place was only a block from the Blue Iguana and a couple of blocks from Energy Solitions Arena. Bet the room would have been a lot more if the Jazz had made the playoffs! Lucky me.
