    Sirs, Madames,

    Any advice where to stay and eat (I won't even mention drink) in Provo, Ut?

    Why, have a drink.

    You may be able to find some Polygamy Porter out there.


    Remember, take some home to the wives.

    Rent a car and take a drive.

    Those Mormons chose a beautiful part of the country to settle down.

    The Google found me this if you want a drink.

    Archafalaya Nightclub

    200 W Center St, Provo, UT 84601

    And a very enlightening review from a discerning patron:

    Utah County's hot spot: AWESOME.....inside is designed like the Louisanna swamp...fishing nets hanging from above in different places...old wooden boat above the main bar...a couple of animatronic chicks with beads on them that lift up thier shirts to show thier hooters above the main bar..murials of the swamp and those kinda trees with moss hanging down painted on the walls..GREAT crowd...Top 40/hip-hop DJ..big dance floor with a main stage and side stage also for dancing..conversation pits with love seats and couches around with a few fake palm trees surrounding...

    Bet you can't wait.

    Not everyone in Utah is LDS. And not every member of the LDS church is a party pooper.

    Nothing screams Utah like a Louisiana-swamp-themed-mardi-gras bar.

    FOF, they just liberalized the alcohol laws. A lot of the private clubs in Utah (you could buy membership at the door) have become regular old bars and pubs.

    Fits right in with having a basketball team named the Jazz though.

    Pioneer League baseball just up the road in Orem, or AAA ball in SLC. Both Angels affiliates, which somehow makes sense.

    I flew for a while with a Mormon from just south of Provo. I forget how it came up, but when he said he was a Mormon and drank, I asked him about the religious restrictions.

    His response: "I said I was a Mormon. I didn't say I was a good one."

    Just south of Provo is Payson. Last exit, near the Wal-Mart. Chinese place, called Tsing Tao. Get Kung Pow anything.

    I've done it once -- on my honeymoon, two years ago -- and I've been craving it ever since.
