Business is better here. You know why, because we're Milwaukee. We're tough, grounded and know how to have fun. And, fun -- for many who choose to drink responsibility -- is rooted in our tavern tradition.

Today, debuts two "Support Local Business" tees that proudly proclaim and champion our recession proof businesses, bars, clubs and alcohol (in moderation, of course.)

These T-shirts, the second in a series a new event- and topic-driven fashion from, are once again created by and marketed with Inferno Marketing and City Screen Print and Embroider.

The shirts, available at the links below, feature two designs. One with a bar stool and a second with a map of metro Milwaukee. Both carry the tag line, "Support Local Business, Get Drunk!"

Buy a shirt, belly up and support local business!
