Fictional Bar T-Shirts From 'Harry Potter,' 'Star Wars,' and 'Grey's Anatomy' Support a Very Real Cause
To celebrate St. Patrick's Day, BoxLunch is donating meals when fans buy t-shirts and drinkware from their favorite TV and movie bars.
This St. Patrick’s Day, you can give to those in need while celebrating iconic entertainment watering holes with BoxLunch’s new and exclusive “Tees on Tap” collection. The pop culture gift, accessory, and apparel company urges you to “shop responsibly” by grabbing one of its 11 new t-shirt designs, as well as a glass from the line’s assorted drinkware sets all celebrating the bars and pubs from famous TV series and movies.
A variety of pop-culture bars and alcohol-loving characters are featured as part of this fashion meets pop culture-meets-drinks BoxLunch mix. That includes a whole new set of t-shirts celebrating fictional establishments and booze lovers everywhere, from the galaxies far, far away to your toy box. Star Wars' famous Tatooine Cantina, Grey Anatomy’s Emerald Bar, and Spongebob’s Salty Spitoon are just a few of the local hangouts you can rep.
Characters, bars, and restaurants from Tangled, The Princess and the Frog, Family Guy, Harry Potter, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Hobbit, Ricky and Morty, and Toy Story are featured on the shirts, which will all have rolled out by the first week in March. In addition, you can grab pint and shot glasses from series like Game of Thrones, Overwatch, and The Simpsons. Glasses are decorated with quotes, character faces, and symbols from each popular television show.
“BoxLunch is excited to present our exclusive Tees on Tap program... [as] a timely tie-in to the holiday and tribute to some of our favorite TV shows and movies,” Robert Thomsen, Vice President of Merchandising and Marketing for Hot Topic Inc. told Food & Wine.
As a bonus, for each $10 you spend, the civic-minded retailer will “help provide a meal secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks,” according to the company’s website. T-shirts cost $28.90 (this translates to 2 meals) and shot glasses are $6.90, while pints can run for up to $50. The t-shirts and glassware are available both in BoxLunch’s brick and mortar stores and online.
