actually - most places can choose to serve wine and beer now. Hard alcohol still requires a membership. If you are staying at a hotel/motel, ask them for a temporary ticket/token/sponsorship. They usually have this set up to avoid the tourist problem.
However, it's been two long years since I was last in moab. SLC works this way for sure.
a near-death experience is just god following "catch and release" regulations...
