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.

By Leah Stodart - Wednesday Sep 20, 2017
Real talk: you choose the wine by the label, then promptly toss it into the recycling bin after the goods are consumed. Seems like kind of a waste, doesn't it?
After all, the bottles can be serious works of art (not looking at you Two Buck Chuck)—but displaying them on your counter will make you look like a hoarder at best, and a wino at worst.
Enter Kinkajou Bottle Cutting and Candle Making Kit: the DIY kit for people who have always considered themselves super DIY (but like, not in the go to the craft store sort of way).

- Orange is the new white? Unique amber wine creates buzz
By MICHAEL HILL, Associated Press - Friday Oct 20, 2017
BURDETT, N.Y. (AP) — The sloping vineyards of New York's Finger Lakes region known for producing golden-hued rieslings and chardonnays also are offering a splash of orange wine.The color comes not from citrus fruit, but by fermenting white wine grapes with their skins on before pressing — a practice that mirrors the way red wines are made. Lighter than reds and earthier than whites, orange wines have created a buzz in trendier quarters. And winemakers reviving the ancient practice like how the "skin-fermented" wines introduce more complex flavors to the bottle."Pretty outgoing characteristics. Very spicy, peppery.
