Eight rejected community restrictions for Riverton’s new Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control-mandated State Liquor Store:


8. To be constructed 500 feet underground and only accessible via secret tunnel from Draper.


7. Attach a Subway and Great Clips on either side as to blend in.


6. Require all bottles to be stocked only on top shelves; lower shelves to be filled with “Why You’re Going to Hell, Drunky” pamphlets.


5. Store hours limited to between 7 and 7:25 p.m. Mondays; closed holidays and odd-numbered months.


4. Alcohol may only be consumed on premises in special cocktail lounge/drunk tank.


3. Levy extra tax on any product whose name doesn’t sound American: Jack Daniels, OK; Smirnoff, 10-percent markup; Jose Cuervo … deported!


2. Free interventions with purchases of six or more items.


1. Install drive-thru window so patrons can more quickly return to their shame-filled homes and beat their children.
