Just to clarify, "...no problem for single women...unless they're American." The challenge for Americans getting a visa into Iran isn't about whether the American is a (single) woman or man; it's that ALL Americans (of either sex, and regardless of marital status) require special Iranian visa review/ procedures, including a pre-booked/ paid/ approved itinerary with a guide from an gov't approved Iranian travel agency.
And all Iranian visa applications--regardless of nationality--are subject to apparent arbitrary review; you may have no problems, or inexplicable delays, or complications.
+1 'bout importing booze. The booze 'trick' in Iran is to befriend the right locals, who may--or not--invite you home for an (illegal) drink. Just don't get caught!
