The next must-have shirt this holiday season is a farewell to the Triple Rock

Put it on your holiday list, next to the brontosaurus hoodie.

There are only a couple weeks left to grab a beer or catch a show at one of the Twin Cities' most iconic music venues.

If you're having a hard time saying goodbye to the Triple Rock Social Club, here's something to dry your tears with: a t-shirt.

In the days after the T-Rock's closing was announced, an image started circulating online. Three diamonds lined up in a row, with the dates 1998-2017. 

The club has put that image on a t-shirt, while a second design bares the classic Triple Rock logo. They're both available here for $18.99 each.

Because what better way to remember the place that hosted countless aspiring musicians and bands than by purchasing another piece of merch?

The Triple Rock will host its final (sold out) show with Dillinger Four – whose guitarist, Erik Funk, co-owns the place – on Nov. 21.

With the outpouring of grief heard 'round the Twin Cities, it's safe to say this is the next must-have shirt for Minnesotans this holiday season.

The other is, of course, the Science Museum's vintage brontosaurus hoodie that showed up in an episode of Stranger Things. Fans crashed the museum's website when the hoodie went on sale Tuesday morning.

On Thursday, the Science Museum said it had sold more than 18,000 of the shirts, gaining about $600,000 towards the museum's educational programs.
