You may visit bars or cafes, and you often write something on sticky notes(便利贴). You can write your thanks, sadness, happiness and so on. And the waiter will stick them on the walls. But in Homer, Alaska, a bar covered all its walls with dollar bills. They are all written by its customers. And Salty Dawg Saloon now is the most famous building of Homer Spit.
There are a lot of bars in the town of Homer. But people like driving a little farther to Salty Dawg. Some don’t even drink there. The place is famous for its money—covered inside. And many tourists just stop by to see it.
The tradition of sticking dollar bills started several tens of years ago. A visitor walked in and stuck a dollar on the wall. He said that his friend would come later. His friend could use the dollar to buy himself a drink. The act soon caught on. And by the early 1900s, everyone who came in started to stick bills on the wall. Today, it’s hard to find a spot to put a new dollar bill!
The bar was once a farm house. It was one of the first buildings that went up in 1897.It was the town’s post office and grocery for many years. In 1957, it was changed into the Salty Dawg Saloon. And it is now the only bar located in Homer Spit.
