— What's Up with the Dollar Bills? —
The tradition began in the '70s when a friend wrote good luck to the owner on a dollar bill and hung it on the wall. The first thing you'll notice when you walk through our doors are the dollar bills, floor to ceiling, hanging in the entryway and the bar. We estimate that there is approximately $16,000 hanging in the building. We remove torn, faded and worn bills and donate them to local charities throughout the year. Markers and a staple gun are available at the host stand to assist you in creating your own personal memories to leave on our walls.
— Mona Lisa —
The restaurant also has a long relationship with Mona Lisa, and it began with three pieces of artwork purchased at a garage sale to decorate the walls. When the restaurant moved to the current location, we displayed many of the Mona Lisa images in our new lounge area. Many of her images were incorporated into the unique bar top right along with original signed dollar bills from the previous location.
