Copper Enameling at Artisan Collective

If you haven’t heard of The Artisan Collective, listen up!   Nestled in the junction next to Megaplex theater, this artist space houses local wares from dozens of local crafters and artisans and to top it off, they have super cheap classes where you can learn everything from sewing to glass blowing! This past week The Ogden Rad Ladies took a copper enameling class (ya, we didn’t know what that was either) and we are all...

Indie Ogden Spotlight: Rolfing Bodywork with Lala at Front Climbing Gym

Last week I went to the Front Ogden, stripped down to my skivvies and tried something new. Lala had me lay on a heated bed filled with crystals and stones and she got to work doing a form of bodywork called Rolfing. So, what is it exactly? Basically, she massaged and moved my muscles back into place. It was strange and very healing all at once. Normally I find myself drifting off to sleep during my massage appointments but this time...

Happiness at Ziegfeld Theater

The Ziegfeld Theater’s Production of You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown was delightful! As each character danced, sang, and bantered I couldn’t help but smile. I wore a stupid grin throughout the play as Sally, Schroeder, Linus, Snoopy, Lucy, and Charlie Brown played out their ridiculous antics. Children were delighted by the play as well as adults. A couple kids I talked to were huge fans of Lucy and Sally, played by Morgan Parry and...

Relaxing at Sego Lily Spa

It has been a pretty chaotic January so far with the Indie Ogden Awards, a massive sinus infection, a shedding husky dog, a kid with walking pneumonia, 1 round of stomach flu, a couple of falls on ice and falling asleep on the couch a few too many times while binge watching Gilmore Girls. My body was in 100 different kinds of knots, and it’s was only halfway through the month. Thankfully, just as I was ready to throw myself...

Indie Ogden Review: Maria’s Mexican Restaurant

I love food. There, I said it. I love all kind of food, and I will go to great lengths to find the perfect bite.  One such adventure has let me to South Ogden, right past the beautifully painted water tanks, to a little restaurant called Maria’s. Maria and her husband of 15 years both grew up in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. After the success of their moving business, Maria was able to open her dream restaurant.  Maria’s...

Indie Ogden Review: Cafe Ville Bella

Ogden is home to so many cute little cafes and restaurants and sometimes in my search for the hidden ones I miss one right in front of me.  Cafe Ville Bella is right down the street from me, but somehow I managed to miss it every time.   With the launch of their new drive-thru, I decided it was about time to explore this local joint. Cafe Ville Bella has a full breakfast and lunch menu to choose from and on our visit, we wanted to try...
