Sandy Amphitheater, Plays, Broadway Musicals, Concerts and Entertainment - 08/28/11 10:35 AM
Sandy Amphitheater, Plays, Broadway Musicals, Concerts and Entertainment. Last night was my first time attending the Sandy Amphitheater. Now I'm asking myself why I waited so long to go. About 5 minutes from my house the Sandy Amphitheater is a fabulous place. The amphitheater was easy to get to (I drive by it almost everyday) clean, wtih a friendly staff and a fabulous performance. They have a large concession stand and offer everything from premier seating to lawn (blanket or chair areas to choose from) . Its a very affordable way to spend an evening.

Sandy Utah Home SOLD! - 08/01/11 12:27 PM
Sandy Utah Home SOLD! Yippee, Gotta love it when a deal comes together. Finally and believe me this home had its challenges. The sellers went on vacation during the middle of the deal neglecting to tell their agent or to consider this during negotations and happened to fall during two of our deadlines. The sellers also disappeared after they signed papers and went on another vacation. The only problem with this is that they still weren't moved out.... Minor dilemma for my buyers. After days of begging, negotiating and working with the other agent to make the sellers realize they need (2 comments)
