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.

- Windsor council blocks veterinarian from serving wine
By Alison Graham - Thursday Aug 24, 2017
The Windsor Town Council denied the request by Wine Country Veterinary Hospital to serve wine to its clients, a decision that was met with mixed feelings and emotions from town residents. The request was denied in a 3-2 vote at the town council meeting Aug. 16 after about 35 minutes of public comment and council discussion. Jessica Klein, the practice’s owner, started serving wine to her clients about five months ago before she was asked to stop after someone filed a complaint. When she applied for an alcohol license, the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control told her she must first receive approval from the town council.
