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.

- PG&E stock has worst week in nine years as wildfires rage
By Mark Chediak and Stephen Cunningham - Friday Oct 13, 2017
PG&E Corp. stock capped its worst week in nine years on speculation that downed power lines may have played a part in deadly wildfires racing across the Wine Country. The shares resumed their slide on Friday, slumping as much as 13 percent, as Evercore ISI said the market is pricing in “significant financial exposure” to the wildfires. PG&E’s stock had barely budged early this week when the wildfires began spreading, consuming people’s homes and forcing thousands to evacuate. Then local media began pointing to potential connections between the fires and PG&E power lines knocked down by strong winds.
