SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A trendy downtown Salt Lake City seafood restaurant started business Saturday with glass-smashing and champagne, a symbolic gesture in its emancipation from Utah's so-called "Zion Curtains" alcohol law.The new liquor law went into effect Saturday, making wine, liquor and higher-alcohol beer more expensive while also allowing some restaurants to take down walls and partitions that were meant to prevent customers from seeing their alcoholic drinks being mixed and poured.The broad liquor law passed in March eased a longtime requirement that drinks be prepared behind barriers known as "Zion Curtains," typically glass walls or back rooms.The Zion Curtain nickname is a reference to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which teaches its members to avoid alcohol and plays an influential role in state liquor policy.Restaurants that want to pick one of those paths will first need the alcohol control department to sign off on their changes and floor plans and meet with a compliance officer from the liquor department.

- The winds behind the Wine Country fires are part of Nor Cal’s autumn legacy
By Carl Nolte - Thursday Oct 12, 2017
Fire rode the wings of the wind this week to bring disaster to Northern California. It is the dread dry autumn wind with many names — Santa Ana and Diablo among them. It drives fire before it and turns even small blazes into nearly unstoppable firestorms. In Northern California, the autumn wind is called the Diablo. It is a classic part of the fall season and is caused when cold air develops under high atmospheric pressure in inland areas in Nevada and Great Basin and is drawn toward the coast by lower barometric pressure. It’s called the Santa Ana in Southern California. The winds always blow from high pressure to low, like a river of air.
