Short answer: Yes, you will get in trouble. And I personally don't recommend public drinking in any Arabic/Islamic country. It is even illegal in many other countries. Long answer is that there are a lot of details to know about drinking law rules in Dubai. By the way, Ramadan is a single month per lunar year. It was in August 2011, it will be in July ...

I would not personally travel to Morocco during this time, based on my experience in traveling in Muslim countries (actually during Ramadan, by mistake and more than once).
