Let's throw some cash at the ceiling.

My college pal Allie stopped in Madison for 12 hours, so I did my best to show her some of the city's best options for local food & drink:

Dinner at The Coopers Tavern.
Drinks at One Barrel Brewing Company.
Dessert at Chocolaterian.
Brunch at Lazy Jane's.

A pretty awesome 12-hour visit, eh?

When we walked into One Barrel, we immediately noticed money all over the ceiling:

After chatting with the bartender, we learned that all ceiling money for the months of May and June will be donated to the Dane County Humane Society. It's an old bar trick: fold a stack of quarters and a thumb tack into a dollar bill, and voila! We had our dollar folded by a pro:

Step 1.
Step 2.
Step 3.
Then, Allie did the honors:

Awesome throw! Nice way to help out the cause. Good times with one of my favorite gals.


  1. Wow! Sounds like a delicious visit! I know that you are not a beer-drinker, but I have to say that the beer at One Barrel is extremely good, even by Madison's very high standards! And the bartender did that with the money last time we visited as well. Very fun.

  2. I've heard their beer is excellent. Also, you can purchase your very own engraved chair.
