Proper certification is one of several recommendations approved Tuesday by the state’s liquor advisory board, made up of restaurant and club representatives. The advisory board also recommended that applicants submit detailed information about hours of operation, pricing and server-training proced...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

It cheekily refers to the difference in the two states — most specifically to liquor laws. A recent attempt to change one of those laws mandating a “Zion curtain” divider between restaurant patrons and bartenders failed. But liquor-law reformers aren’t giving up. They say they will be back with another attempt to tear down the curtain — and to eliminate some o...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

On Tuesday, the state liquor commission unanimously approved a full-service restaurant license for The Ridge at 14886 S. Traverse Ridge Road. The building had been vacant for more than five years and had fallen into disrepair, brothers Calvin and Todd Wadsworth told the board.

It seems that so often, our human nature is to find fault and to cast aspersions, and it is those words that readily find their voice in publication.

Upon checkout, she tripped while loading a box of wine onto the cart’s lower shelf. She went down hard and was knocked out. Awaking a moment later, she found a split elbow and knee, a broken bottle of red wine spreading across the floor, all eyes on her, and calls being made to 911. This was all terribly embarrassing for her. She insisted she was fine and ready to leave, but the fine staff asked her to relax and w...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

The House Revenue and Taxation Committee voted 8-7 Tuesday to pass HB285, and sent it to the full Senate. It would get rid of the Zion Curtain, a 7-foot-2-inch opaque barrier that newer restaurants must have in bar areas so children can’t see alcoholic beverages ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
