As mentioned in yesterday’s blog, the “No Name Pub” pizza is indeed world-class awesome but it’s NOT the #1 tourist attraction… it’s the $$$ MONEY $$$… “SHOW ME THE MONEY!” And I mean plenty of it, although no one really knows exactly how much, estimates of $100,000 or more cover every square inch of the walls & ceiling.
We went for pizza and was offered a table outside which we willingly turned down! I’m sorry people, you don’t come here for the first time to eat and sit outside… AIN’T NO MONEY OUTSIDE! 🙂 For the glorious green George Washington decor and the aroma of pure U.S. Mint 🙂 we patiently waited 10 minutes for a table and another 3o minutes for our pizza. It’s always packed, with only a dozen or so be prepared to wait.
The very first dollar bill was given to a female bartender who had caught the eye of a male patron. He proceeded to write his name and phone number upon the dollar which he handed the barmaid that she in turn pined on the wall behind the register and the rest as they say is history. With a FREE provided staple gun & magic marker, these days people just write their names and date visited on a dollar and staple it OVER existing dollars on the wall or ceiling anywhere they can. I spent 45 minutes looking for my previous dollar bill I’d stapled to the ceiling to no avail.
Travel Channel host Samantha Brown was shown stapling up a dollar that I really wanted to find and photograph for you. Unfortunately the waitress said that Samantha did NOT sign one of her own but was shown stapling up another customers dollar instead.
This is an awesome sight to behold and not to be missed! I can only imagine how much their insurance is with such a fire hazard as this in a restaurant! So put this on your list for sure, the address and directions were in yesterday’s blog. It’s FREE to browse around and take photos but the dollar bill itself that you sign and leave behind they ask it be yours! 🙂
