Little Known Facts about Your Favorite Hangouts

Recently, we were traveling through Henniker (the only one on Earth), and stopped into a local restaurant that obviously had a story to tell. 

I took this picture of the ceiling in the bar section of The Country Spirit Restaurant and Tavern. I knew there had to be a story behind the dollar bills tacked to the ceiling, but I didn’t get a chance to find out while we there. That’s where WOKQ listeners once again, save the day!

One of our listeners to send me a link to an article in the Concord Monitor. It seems it’s an old tradition at The Country Spirit:

It’s an old Spirit tradition for customers to throw money on the bar ceiling. A thumbtack and quarter folded into a bill and tossed hard enough at the ceiling will stick. Thousands of dollars have been collected over the years, and periodically money is taken down and donated to various organizations around Henniker.

I’d love to hear about some of the traditions from your favorite local hangout.
