I don't think they're necessarily promoting drunken driving. Just because somebody wants to go to a bar to see the game doesn't mean they have to get gassed, although I'm sure a lot will. Personally, I'll either be in the garage with the heat cranked up or at the neighbors house. Either way, the car stays in the driveway.

Hi, Harry. I don't believe that by publicizing local bar specials, we are promoting drunken driving. We are providing interesting, relevant information about local businesses. We do not advise that people drink and drive, and nowhere does our article state that. We appreciate your feedback. We hope our readers drink responsibly. Lauren Traut, Associate Regional Editor
