Whiskey Dick Wednesdays & Other "Specials" Are Back!

The Utah Hospitality Association’s lawsuit over Utah’s liquor laws has ended after both sides agreed that daily drink specials can be offered in bars and restaurants.

A federal judge dismissed the lawsuit against the state, which claimed the state’s liquor laws violated federal anti-trust laws and accused lawmakers of conspiring with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on liquor legislation.

Utah liquor laws have always allowed social clubs to change their prices from one day to the next, so long as they change their menus and otherwise comply with the rest of the law.

However bars and restaurants cannot advertise that drink specials are, in fact, drink specials. They can offer “Margarita Tuesdays”, “Two Dollar Drafts,” and my favorite "Whiskey Dick Wednesdays" but they cannot explicitly call them “drink specials.” “Happy Hours” are still not allowed under Utah law.

It looks like the no advertising part of the agreement may spark a new round of First Amendment litigation down the road.

Remember, whatever victories we earn in the war to let adults be adults, Senator John Valentine will immediately concoct "anti-legislation" to create an artificial balance to drag us bag down. Sorry to spoil this victory with my defeatist attitude.

Cheers!

Realism is not a "defeatist attitude", it is an acknowledgement to the way things are.
