Monday/ the Shooting Star Saloon

The tongue-in-cheek and risque ‘Polygamy Porter’ from Wasatch Brewery in Park City, Utah. (Too heavy for my taste in beers).
The Shooting Star Saloon’s location in Huntsville, near a reservoir in the mountains near Ogden.
The entrance of the Shooting Star Saloon.  There’s a moosehead and other stuffed animals inside and lots of Wild West memorabilia.

We are staying in the town of Ogden north of Salt Lake City, close to our project location.  After work today, we stopped by the Shooting Star Saloon.  It is located in a little town called Huntsville (no, not Huntsville, Alabama!).  It’s a beer-and-burgers-only place that we were told is the oldest operational saloon west of the Mississippi, complete with Wild West shoot-outs and connections to Al Capone (he stored bootleg liquor in the basement during Prohibition).
