Just when you thought the crazy pills were wearing off, the Utah DABC comes up with a new rule to prove Utah floats in a bizarre parallel universe.
Beginning May 9, Utah restaurants that serve alcohol and bars must display an 8 1/2” by 11” sign designating whether they are a “restaurant” or a “bar.”
Something like this:
This premise is licensed as a restaurant
Not a bar
Imagine for a moment you are someone lucky enough to only be visiting Utah and you saw that sign. Would you:
A. Believe you could order a drink.
B. Leave to try to find restaurant that serves alcohol.
C. Question the sanity of the people who posted it.
D. Chuckle about “pain-in-the-a** Utah” and Instagram the sign to the rest of the nation.
(Businesses licensed as a bar will have to display the opposite message.)
Of course, social media is having a field day.
