Big ups to the Siesta Key Oyster Bar, in Sarasota, Fla., for axing a 16-year tradition of pinning dollar bills on its walls and ceiling, to pull it all down in donating to the Red Cross for Hurricane Dorian relief.
The tradition originally hails from an old fisherman’s tale in which sticking money on the wall would secure you a spot and a beer at the bar after a long day’s work.
The donation is for roughly $14,000. The final goal is $15,000. The media coverage is definitely helping as well, as people are coming in droves to donate upward of $50 a visit for the initiative as well.
What’s even more awesome is that this isn’t the first time the establishment has pulled money down off of its structure, having donated over $10,000 to five different local charities.
This team effort gets five thumbs up from all of us here at FLMT.
David Ashworth, 51-years-old, registered an email to a news outlet that he was going to kill a hotel manager for disrespecting his girlfriend, because Florida.
Ashworth claims the hotelier ‘double charged his credit card and kicks people out’. He then used said girlfriend’s email to write, “I am taking him out next week when I say that you all don’t understand … He made my girl cry now I must make him die.”
He also called the local tv station and told them he was a lawyer. When arrested, he admitted to all accusations and was charged with felony written threats to kill with a set bond at $7,500.
