Dive bars are an essential part of Chicago culture—with that old school, no-frills atmosphere and a cold drink always at the ready.
Of course, recent times have been tough for the lifeblood of Chicago: local businesses. And like your neighborhood watering hole has always been there for you with a glistening pint and a seat at the bar, now’s your chance to be there for them during a challenging time.
Oh, and you can have tons of fun while doing it.
Thursday is trivia night once again thanks to the new Seagram’s 7 virtual dive bar trivia series, and it’s just like being back at your local bar. Best of all, Seagram’s 7 will be donating to the United States Bartenders Guild (USBG) Emergency Assistance program as part of their summer-long National Dive Bar Day celebration.
So gather your friends (virtually) and get ready to support your bartenders while battling it out for the ultimate first prize: a $500 Visa gift card!
Hosted by dive bar regular Jason Lederman, the Seagram’s 7 Dive Bar Trivia Nights will test your knowledge on music, pop culture, and general trivia during amazing pub quizzes over the next few weeks.
Each week, participants will be able to interact and chat with each other, along with the hilarious host, to compete for some great prizes like:
- a VISA gift card of $500 for the champs
- a snazzy LED Seagram’s 7 Bar sign for those coming in second
- cool, dive bar approved Seagram’s 7 merch for those coming in third
The trivia nights will take place every Thursday, from June 25 through July 9, in celebration of our beloved dive bars.
Since going out to support our local bars can be a challenge this year, the annual National Dive Bar Day is instead being celebrated around the country all summer long, with an initiative to directly support the backbones of these establishments—the bartenders. Seagram’s 7 will be donating to the United States Bartenders Guild (USBG) Emergency Assistance program as part of their campaign to help the dive bar community and staff during these times, and they encourage whoever can to do the same!
Give back to your local bar by joining any (or all!) of the Seagram’s 7 Dive Bar Trivia Nights here.
