GREELEY, Colo. - When you have too much to drink at a bar, you should probably make sure your car is locked and find a ride home.

However, that doesn't always happen.

The Tavern at St. Michael's Square in Denver decided to encourage their customers to not drink and drive in an unexpected way.

According to KDVR, customers who left their cars overnight in the parking lot returned to find coupons on their vehicles.

"We want to take this moment to let you know we noticed you left your car at the Tavern at St. Michael's Square tonight. In honor of your commitment to the safety of our community, we would like to present you with this coupon for $5 toward your first drink on your next trip in. Thank you for being such an amazing person and not driving home tonight," the coupon read.

The Tavern says it regularly asks customers how they are getting home and has been known to cut people off when they've had too much to drink.

“Some bar patrons feel guilty or worry that their car might get towed. We want to encourage customers to have a great time while they are here and help to make sure that their night ends just as well,”  said Toni Patrick, the general manager of The Tavern.
