Ruth’s Chris Steak House grand opening at Hotel Park City

In 1965, Ruth Fertel mortgaged her home to buy a little steak house in New Orleans called Chris Steak House. After investing her life savings, she proudly added her name to the original. That’s how the uniquely named Ruth’s Chris Steak Hose was born.

On Dec. 17, within Hotel Park City, the newest Ruth’s Chris Steak House in the United States opened.

The restaurant is open from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week, and is available to both hotel guests and general customers. It features indoor and outdoor seating, and views of the Park City Golf Course and the ski runs of Park City Mountain Resort. Private dining areas are also available for groups of 50 or less.

For reservations, contact Ruth’s Chris Steak House at (435) 940-5070 or visit

Help those living with cancer this holiday season

In the spirit of giving this holiday season, consider giving some of your time to the American Cancer Society. The American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery, Reach to Recovery and Look Good Feel Better programs are in need of volunteers throughout Utah.

Road to Recovery is a program where volunteers drive cancer patients to treatments centers and home again. Volunteers can set their own schedules, but must have a valid driver’s license, automobile insurance and go through a short volunteer orientation seminar.

Reach to Recovery pairs up breast cancer survivors with newly diagnosed breast cancer patients. The idea is to provide breast cancer patients with someone to talk to who’s already been through the disease, who can provide emotional support and guidance.

Look Good Feel Better offers classes taught by licensed cosmetologists where cancer patients can learn how to apply makeup while going through treatment and receive free hats, scarves and wigs, if needed.

For more information about these service programs or to volunteer, call the American Cancer Society at (800) 227-2345 or visit, or send an e-mail to Sharon Hinckley at
