A bar sparked outrage over the weekend after launching a campaign inviting patrons to 'drink like an Indian'. Managers at the sports bar have been forced to apologise to American Indian groups after receiving hundreds of complaints about the posters and fliers. The flyers, which advertised drink specials throughout the Thanksgiving holiday period at Station 280, in St Paul, Minnesota, featured drawings of a cowboy and an American Indian in traditional garb slumped together on the floor.
