It was up at Murphy’s Bleachers across from Wrigley Field earlier today.

Chicago Tribune reporter Paul Sullivan spotted the sign and was the first to report on it.

The sign invites patrons to remember the attack with bombs and kamikazes – referring to popular drinks.

Murphy’s management is apologizing for the sign and says they took the sign down as soon as they became aware of it.

They tell WGN-TV it was the result of poor judgement by a bartender, and called the sign awful and embarrassing.

      It is news because it shows the lack of respect of a generation that does not understand what the meaning of a veterans sacrifice is!!! It ended with the draft generation! FREEDOM is not free!!!!!! The ones who wrote it should be sent to OEF or OIF and let them experience what a REAL Bomb can do, then come home and have a different view of what it means to REMEMBER Pearl Harbor!
