Sean P. Means | Tribune file photo Microsoft Corp. acknowledged its plans for Salt Lake City on its official blog.

In what is the greatest event in the history of civilization, the City Creek Center opens today -- granting Utahns the long-denied chance to shop at Tiffany's, the Disney Store, 77Kids, Boss Hugo Boss and other high-end stores.

The Cricket got to take a "sneak peak" at the new shopping center Wednesday night, joining 2,000 others at a charity gala to benefit The Road Home, Ballet West, Utah's Hogle Zoo and the Junior League of Salt Lake City.
