Utah's "Club" Laws Go Quiet

Utah's "Club" Laws Go Quiet

Visitors no longer need to become members of clubs and bars to get a drink

Holy Schneiderweiss! We hadn't heard this until just now, but it looks like Utah is now open for boozers -- er, for discerning folks of legal age who enjoy adult beverages now and then. Utah's legislature recently killed off the state's "private club" rules, which required anyone entering a bar or club to be a member of that establishment -- usually for a small fee. There were ways around it, of course. (Our favorite: When the doorman asks if you're a member, you say, "Oh, sure." Worked every time.) But it was largely seen as a hindrance to the nightlife in Utah's ski towns. Indeed, for years we've had to explain in our Utah coverage that yes, you can get a drink in the state, you just have to know the rules. But no more of that. Since July, state law has sanctioned making bars "public". We'll drink to that.
