Drinking and Driving

Think Before You Drink...

When considering all of the awesome localities we have featured in our Dive Bar Shirt Club, we felt like it was an appropriate and important time to reflect on the dangers of consuming too much alcohol and making compromised decisions.

Dive Bar Shirt Club
We are not going to preach about the evils of drinking and driving under the influence, instead we want to take a moment and reflect in what we believe separates a dive bar worthy of being featured on one of our shirts, and which are not.

We think that one of the primary differences is that dive bars are for local communities. It’s where you go after work, on the weekend, to meet friends, to escape your significant other. It’s a place, as the opening of Cheers proclaimed, “Where Everybody Knows Your Name”. And unlike bars that are more concerned with class and reputation, dive bars and dive bar patrons knows your limitations and won’t let you risk driving drunk and ruining your life or perhaps the life of another.

It Takes a Village...

At dive bars people are most important. And just as it is the community that creates a dive bar, it is the community that keeps a dive bar operational. Drinking and driving is not a funny manner and something to joke about, and we always urge the members of the Dive Bar Shirt Club to drink responsibly.

T-Shirt Club of the Month Club
The Dive Bar Shirt Club is an organization that sends out a dive bar tee shirt once a month. We feature dive bars that have been submitted to us through either social media platforms, such as a Facebook, or through our website. On our Facebook page, we often highlight submitted dive bars and have plenty of pictures of these different venues.

The concept of the Dive Bar Shirt Club is simple. We like to celebrate the local establishments and the sense of community they share. We are all about working together to promote local bars. Long live the dive bars! Please feel free to submit your local dive bar and we’ll hopefully feature your bar as one of our monthly shirts!
