Just doing my part to stimulate the economy.

Treating the P4s to a powder day at Brighton, Utah.

Utah is finally ridding itself of one of its many arcane bar laws: private memberships.

Gov. Jon Huntsman and state House and Senate leaders agreed Monday to eliminate the state’s much-criticized private club system, which requires someone to fill out an application and pay a fee for the right to enter a bar unless he or she is the guest of a member.


I had to buy a membership — $12 for a year — just last week to watch my Huskies play Arizona State.

Hopefully the newly-enlightened legislature will work on the cap on draft beer — 3.2% — and the one-shot per drink limit. (It’s useless to order anything on the rocks).

At least now, there’s one less reason for a bartender or server to sarcastically say to an incredulous tourist, “Welcome to Utah!”

Progress, people, progress.
