Yup, my bad.

The most frustrating thing for me about Utah liquor laws is that they don't make any sense and don't accomplish anything. The people that make our liquor laws are not involved in the food and beverage industry and almost none of them drink, at all.

But we get by. I think we all try extra hard to live our lives the way we want to and not let silly restrictions get us down. I think it makes for a very vibrant counter culture that is almost invisible to the world outside Utah, but is very much alive and kicking inside Utah.

Yeah, but in reference to that sort of thing i am reminded of the episode of "Insomniac" that Dave Attell filmed in salt lake city.

Specifically, the house party he goes to, where people in the basement have worked out this really complex system where they drill a hole through a block of ice so that they can awkwardly drink ice cold jagermeister.

After watching that for 30 seconds or so, he takes the bottle, says "You do it like this", and takes a swig.

Trying Too Hard, some of 'em.

I'm pretty sure it was Joseph Smith who said you'll always know a mormon because they can never drink or curse convincingly.
