Just so you know, if you use money as wallpaper in a bar, a drunk person will try to take your wallpaper.

Just because it's an Irish pub doesn't mean there was any animal farking going on.

They're doing it wrong.
Aren't the bills supposed to go on the ceiling?

There is no more room on the ceiling.
 
2012-04-01 08:32:07 AM  
99% of the bills are marked up to the point of probably not being able to spend them.

NWF Daily News. Must be McGuires [click] Yup.

The ceiling is already covered. Entirely.

/Very very good steak.
//aged correctly too.
///they host an amazing prediction 5k around St. Patrick's (at the original Pensacola location) with free irish wakes, beer, and stew afterward for the runners.

[Googles McGuires] Wow, impressive!
Drunkman probably figured they wouldn't miss a few.

Was that wrong? Should I not have done that? I tell you, I gotta plead ignorance on this thing, because if anyone had said anything to me at all when I first went there, that that sort of thing is frowned upon... you know, cause I've drunk in a lot of bars, and I tell you, a-holes do that all the time.
 
2012-04-01 09:34:26 AM  
Done in two. If you're surprised when some drunk takes money you've stapled to the wall of your crappy tourist trap not-relying-on-repeat-business bar, you're a moron.
 
2012-04-01 09:40:12 AM  
Idiots do this at the Square Grouper all the time.

The "wall of tits" OTOH, is pure win. Too bad it doesn't get updated anymore.

The Million Dollar Wall at Horseshoe Casino
 
2012-04-01 09:56:34 AM  
I used to frequent a bar that had dollar bills covering the walls and ceiling. They were so encrusted with decades of accumulated dirt and cigarette tar that I don't think you'd really want to touch them, let alone take them home with you.

Come to think of it, that also describes most of the women at said bar.


/strong drinks, free pool, and an excellent jukebox, too.

McGuires is one nasty, dirty place with years of accumulated grime covering well, everything. They also serve overpriced, poor quality food. And can you image? It's not even a "real" Irish bar. Most of the Frat Twats who go there have never been outside of Pensacola long enough to have ever been to a real Irish Pub.

In other words it's a tourist trap, and any jack-hole who leaves a dollar there is wasting a dollar.

Read headline, see Florida tag, instantly knew it had to be McGuires. Great grub and a nice place to get sloppy drunk.
 
2012-04-01 10:53:15 AM  
We don't have a Jackass tag, do we? After reading this article, we should.

Really? I was thinking Captain Tony's until I saw NW Florida. When I get home I'll have to hot link some of my pix from there.

Hopefully he won't try to spend his new 43 dollar bills at Taco Bell.
 
2012-04-01 11:55:00 AM  
I knew a biker bar where he wouldn't have made it to the door. Was on Baltic Ave, Va. Beach, been gone a while, wonder if it's still there?

I can't believe the Supreme Court struck down Florida's anti-asshat laws as unconstitutional.
 
2012-04-01 01:15:29 PM  
We used to take them down off the wall when no one was watching and use them in the cigarette vending machine to buy smokes and get quarters to play the pool table.

Thanks for the dollar bills you farking stupid tourists.

THere is a very funny letter in the men's restroom of Maguires, from an apparently drunken sailor (being a big military town and all), apologizing profusely for the same offense, and mentioning the severe reaming he received from the service and his commanding officer for being such an idiot. I believe there is also another framed letter stating to the Navy that the restaurant was satisfied with the apology and would not continue to press charges.
 
2012-04-01 02:33:51 PM  
Funny for those who read it, anyway-didn't sound like any fun for the sailor. They (the Navy) really seems to frown on people making the local industry look bad.

Sorry, it's been long since closed. Evidently, the owner was busted for running a numbers book out of the back office and buying & selling stolen goods that the local chain-snatchers were looking to fence. Makes sense in retrospect; the drinks were so cheap he almost certainly wasn't making any money on the bar as such, just using it as a front to mask the other stuff behind a façade of semi-respectability.

Do you remember the name of it? The bars at the beach change frequently.

It wasn't the 'give a dollar, take a dollar wall'?
 
2012-04-02 12:23:19 AM  
Count me as another one who saw the Florida tag and knew exactly where this was.

Hey locals: remember when the Islander Bar on Pensacola Beach had 1,000 signed bras hanging from the ceiling? Damn health department!

Cool, but back in the day, Benny Binion had a hundred $10,000 bills on display.
