You hard a hard time getting a drink at all before the Olympics were held there. They had to catch up with the times a little because of the Olympics. I think since 2002 most of the liquor laws have been softened some.
For a while, you could only be served alcohol with a meal in a restaurant.
SLC is definately a different planet.
Because the streets are so wide, they want you to pick up an orange flag on one side of the street, and carry the orange flag across the street with you, and drop it in a container on the other side for someone coming back across. And they have crosswalks in the middle of the block. Traffic must stop for your little orange flag.
I guess when your streets are almost one hundred feet across it's an issue.
Every time I see the great salt lake it makes me think of a lake on another planet.
SLC is also the dumpster capital of the world. All night, every night, all you hear is garbage trucks downtown. Drives me nuts. Slam. Beep Beep Beep. Slam. Beep Beep Beep Beep.
