FOUND: One Happy Dollar

Found:  I made this find shortly after several others, so I thought I’d space out the posting in case I didn’t find any more money for awhile, and alas, I have found none since this one.  So here goes.

Back on May 25, the Boston-area indie pop act One Happy Island held their album release party at the Lizard Lounge in Cambridge, MA.  They brought with them several UK acts, including the very talented Allo Darlin.  The room was pretty packed, especially over by the room’s lone bar.  At some point in the night, a single dollar slipped free of a patron’s pocket or purse, landing on the floor before being recovered by The Shoegazer.  A second dollar was observed a short time later, but in the case of the second dollar, The Shoegazer spotted the source and directed his attention toward the floor, where he recovered his dollar and went on his way.
Location: Both finds occurred near the bar at the Lizard Lounge on Mass Ave in Cambridge, MA.

Source: The source of dollar one was an anonymous bar patron who, in the process of enjoying a fine evening of twee on a Tuesday night, lost a single dollar.  The Shoegazer doubts it ruined this person’s night.  The second dollar was dropped by another fan of indie pop, who was One Happy Hipster after having his dollar returned to him.

Destination:  Dollar one was spent at the bar at Lizard Lounge shortly thereafter, as it went toward the obligatory $1 tip when The Shoegazer purchased a pint of beer (most likely an IPA, considering that’s about all they serve, despite having 30-something taps).  The second dollar probably was spent at the same bar, or possibly at the merch table.
