Despite a particularly lengthy meeting (clocking in at over two hours), there weren’t any big shocks or stories to report from the June assembly. The month-to-month meetup particularly targeted on criminal and procedure issues. One thrilling point therein became the explanation/reminder (depending on your perspective) that any business licensed as a bar wishes to have extra than only a bag of chips to be had. Indeed, from the DABC bar handbook:
“Bars ought to have a diffusion of food prepared and served in connection with eating hotels on the premises of the bar.”
In this context, beginning a jar of salsa, reaching for a stick of jerky or throwing some popcorn in the microwave honestly doesn’t reduce it. No word if this a part of the code goes to get extra of a look in, anticipate masses of news if it does.
Anyway, on with the winners, right here’s who secured licensing in June:

Flaming Gorge Resort, Dutch John

Two full licenses had been up for grabs. Punch Bowl Social – the connoisseur Dave N Busters commencing in The Gateway in the direction of the end of July – secured the primary license.
Meanwhile downtown SLC’s Button Up traded in their Summer Seasonal for the second one full bar license.
The next full bar license isn’t projected to be had till August now, even though a small handful of Summer Seasonals (3 by using my reckoning) are to be had in a pinch; those full permit bars to operate through the give up of October.
Following Social Axe’s lead of putting in pool tables for fun and earnings closing month, Heart and Seoul Karaoke ultimately nabbed their much written about recreational beer license – 3 beers in line with a patron, per visit so you understand.
In addition to the entire carrier license (scroll again up in case you ignored it) Pat’s Barbecue also secured a brand new addition; beer license, for a, in short, referred to a new vicinity, although I can’t locate any further proof or data to go with that just but.
Lastly, SLC can welcome but any other new distiller, with Salt Flats Spirits obtaining a brand new producer distillery license.
