A Miner's tradition.  

From Colorado Silver mines to the California gold rush miners pitched a dollar on the ceiling at their favorite watering hole for good luck and as a insurance policy for their families to claim should they get hurt while in the mines.  In remembrance of these miners the Owl Saloon will match a donation, equal to the amount pitched on it's ceiling, to the Colfax Museum.  A pitch a Benjamin will get you a free dozen roses from Ed Moore Florist, and More (6101 E. Colfax Ave.)
