Should you visit the Triple Tree Tavern in Clifton, you'll notice dollar bills, hundreds of them, attached to the ceiling. Why do people do this?

In the event your journeys bring you to the Triple Tree Tavern on 2nd Street in Clifton, you'll see the dollar bills directly over the bar. The bills are typically wadded up, with something in the middle fastening them to the ceiling.

If one were to take those dollar bills down, they could afford to buy the bar several rounds of drinks. Actually, they would be able to make a month's mortgage payment. There are a few hundred bucks up there.

Why would the patrons of the Triple Tree Tavern do this? I asked the bouncer, but he had no idea. Is this part of some local tradition?
