There are some here where I am, but not a lot. It was sort of a growing trend just before the pandemic. Mostly bars serving non-alcoholic drinks and probably soda. It wasn't really for religious purpose, but more so for those wanting the alcohol-free to be healthy movement. Eventually for a summer, there was a fad of lots of pop up bars specifically serve artisan crafted, state of the art, and high quality pure water. But that fad died down after a few months.Serious question for people who don't live in a bubble: Do they have soda (pop? soft drink?) bars outside of Utah?
Apparently these places have been all the rage here for the past few years. Now there's one opening up fairly close to our house... We were really hoping it'd be a food place that we'd enjoy but no, it's a damn soda bar. Like seriously, what exactly is the draw of a place that just has a bunch of different sodas and maybe some cookies or something??? I like soda as much as the next guy but I'd never visit a place JUST to buy a soda. Hell, I don't often buy soda even at fast food places because it's cheaper to buy those 2-liter bottles at the grocery store. I even Googled it and apparently places like this are so popular here in Utah because most of the Mormons won't drink anything with alcohol, yet they're fine consuming MASSIVE amounts of sugar. Which, by the way, always seemed ludicrous to me... 'Alcohol, coffee and tea are all evil! But consume all the sugar you want, who cares about diabetes?'
Sigh... I really have to get out of this state.
Parachuting beavers 😮🙃 Glad they made a safe landing 🥳I get sad if I see a suggestion for beaver dam removal, though those who drive on flooded roads will think otherwise. I mean, beavers do so much for the environment. Guess no one wants to live in a wetland except for beavers, fish and plants. And they're just so cute. With their nearsightedness and iron-teeth.
