You listening Jimmy?
I copied the two articles below from Leisure and a published email from a soldier in Iraq.
The subject is Ruth's Diner just outside SLC, Utah. If you get a chance while skiing this neck of the woods be sure to stop here once for a most memorable breakfast.

2100 Emigration Canyon

Located in Emigration Canyon, just outside of Salt Lake City, this classic diner has been serving up award-winning breakfast for over 70 years. Named for the spirited woman who founded this quaint establishment, Ruths is never short on homemade biscuits and jam, fresh coffee and friendly smiles. The back patio backs onto Emigration Canyon. Portions are massive here. The New York Times and USA Today have written up Ruths, and locals have recognized it as the best place for breakfast in city polls for many years running.

Subject: Ruth's
There is a little restaurant outside of Salt Lake City. Ruth's Diner. Some time ago, back in the 30's or 40's, Ruth opened this little joint in a trolley car and fed patrons recipes that still do well today. The trolley car sits in a wide spot around a bend far up in one of the many mountainous canyons that feed into the Salt Lake valley.
Hungry breakfast goers can still sit in the trolley car, but the real atmosphere of the place, and one of the main gravitational forces, is the outside patio. It rests under large trees and acts as a gateway to the wildlife and serenity that the canyon has to offer. Outside, there is a bar and a small stage. From time to time, an aspiring musician and her guitar belt out tunes for the morning patrons and their coffee. Mimosas and Bloody Marries are served after 11 on Sundays. The patio tables have retractable umbrellas to fend off the morning dew; and the service is comprised of the non-traditional employees that seem to have been there forever, maybe because they just like the laidback work environment.

Happy Birthday Colonel, if I can get these misers i'm travelling with to skip free breakfast at the hotel, sounds like Ruth's is as much a landmark as a good place to eat. Which resorts is it on the way to?
