Historic 25th Street, Ogden, UT

June 24th, 2010 · No Comments

A few weeks ago I went to Utah for work. June has been so busy, I’m just sorting through the photos now. I went on the trip with my coworkers Aimee and Ashanth. We worked a lot and didn’t have much free time, but I still have some cool shots and a few posts to share.

I flew out to Utah on the same night that I did the 25-mile UPAF bike ride. On the way out our flight was so delayed. Like 3 hours delayed. We were leaving at the time we should have been arriving. We landed in Salt Lake City, blearily found our rental car and drove up to Ogden, where we were staying. We finally got checked into our hotel at something like 2:00 a.m. And then we got up for work at 6:30 a.m. That was awesome.

My work was at Hill Air Force Base, where I was doing user interviews and observing user testing on an internal application that I designed. On base, the experience could not have been more opposite than our day-to-day work environment. Where in Chicago the office is totally casual, on base we had to dress in suits and heels and lock up our cell phones before entering secure facilities.

Anyway, enough about work. Our first night in Utah we were exhausted from only having had a few hours of sleep. Our hotel was on 24th Street in Ogden, Utah. Through our back parking lot was 25th Street, which is a historic stretch in Ogden. We were all tired, but we had to eat, so we decided to go just one block over and then call it an early night.

We explored the little historic downtown stretch for a bit, and then settled on Roosters Brewing for dinner. This is a local brewpub with two locations, the Historic 25th Street being the original location.

It was still nice and sunny out so we sat in a glassed-in outdoor dining room.

Flowers in a growler.

I tried a beer that they make called Polygamy Pale Ale and Ashanth tried a sampler of several of their beers. I think Aimee was too exhausted to go down the beer path!

For dinner I had a half salad and half pizza combo.

It was a steak fajita pizza!

I thought this was a great spot and would recommend it to anyone in the unlikely chance that they find themselves in Ogden, UT! I expected when travelling out there that we’d be eating at all chain restaurants, but we were able to search out smaller local places that were really great, although I think Subway did sneak it’s way in one time!
