Ram’s Head Rat
It was a tradition. It was a U.N.C. tradition. It was a Chapel Hill tradition. The place was, of course, the Ram’s Head Rathskellar — aka “The Rat” to generations of students and locals. Inside the heavy wooden door on Amber Alley off Franklin was the dark, earthy interior atmosphere that welcomed its first customers in 1948. Thousands of Rat-goers carved their initials into the wooden tables over the years, while scarfing down the legendary “Double Gambler” steak or an original Rat-style pizza. Washing it all down with the pitchers or sweet tea on the tables. The bar was an immediate right upon entrance, and who remembers the pinball machine and big fish tank? After 60 years in Chapel Hill, the Rat gave it’s final call in 2008 when the doors closed for good.

I actually worked at The Rat from '88 - '96, so I have a few old tees from back in the day. But this one is a great designe that was "retired" before I started there. This rat is going places! Of all the tees I've bought from Lost Lost Tees, this is the only one that's a wee bit snug. Maybe just thinking about those Double Gamblers and bowls of cheese (aka, "lasagna") just makes my waist expand :)
If you're a Tar Heel, you HAVE to sport the Rat tee! What are you waiting for, you know that place was the BEST!
