Nearby grub

Of course, this list could include dozens more places nearby, but for the sake of brevity, we've limited it to restaurants that share a street with Pioneer Park and will be open late enough for concert-goers to chow down.

  • The Tin Angel, across the street from the park (365 W. 400 South) prides itself on serving fresh, local ingredients in a sit-down atmosphere.
  • For a quick taste of Thai, Eka mai serves several curries from behind a takeout counter. Open until 10 p.m.
  • Bruges Waffles and Frites serves up fresh waffles of all kinds, sandwiches, sausages, and their fries, served Belgian-style with homemade mayos of all flavors. Open until 8 p.m. Food vendors will be included in the Twilight Market, and the cuisine will range from meatball subs to Thai and raw foods.
  • Caputo's Deli is open until 7 p.m., but early-comers will be rewarded with a range of fresh salads, sandwiches and pastas.
