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.
