Bar Owner Removes $3,714 Worth Of Bills Stapled To The Walls To Pay Unemployed Staff

Probably most of us know at least one bar that has gone quite overboard with its unique decorations. Antique furniture, really weird vintage animal posters, family pictures all over the walls, coins glued to the bar⁠—you name it. Well, it turns out some of them might actually be useful in these grim times during the coronavirus pandemic. Especially the latter.

The Sand Bar in Tybee Island, Georgia used to have quite similar decorations. Except they had dollar bills up on their walls rather than coins glued to their bar. But the dollar bills are up on the walls no more since the owners decided to put them to greater use and take them down in order to pay their staff.

While interesting and tasteful decorations may often contribute to the success of a bar or a restaurant, this time, it may also contribute to this one’s survival during the coronavirus lockdown. The Sand Bar in Tybee Island, Georgia was known for its one-of-a-kind decorations. Its walls were covered in bills with tiny little notes from its customers.

Turns out, the custom of writing a note on a bill and stapling it to the wall was an ongoing tradition for over 15 years. But the recent lockdown forced bar owner Jennifer Knox to take the bills down and put them to greater use. Since the state lawmakers issued a stay-at-home-directive in an attempt to slow down the spread of the novel coronavirus, The Sand Bar, among many other non-essential services, closed its doors, leaving the staff underpaid until the lockdown is lifted.
