DRINKING WITH HISTORY: THE SILVER DOLLAR BAR OF JACKSON HOLE

The latest issue of BusinessWeek magazine has an article titled
"Drinking With History", a tour of historic hotel bars around the
U.S.  Numismatists might appreciate the Silver Dollar bar in the
Wort Hotel in Jackson Hole, WY:

"The Historic Hotels of America recognize 21 bars around the country.
Among them are the Menger Hotel bar in San Antonio, which in 1887
was modeled after the bar in the House of Lords pub in London and
where Theodore Roosevelt is said to have recruited many of his Rough
Riders for service in the Spanish-American War. Others with equally
colorful histories include the J-Bar in the Hotel Jerome in Aspen,
Colo.; Oliver's Lounge in the Mayflower Park Hotel in Seattle"

"The centerpiece of the infamous Silver Dollar is the mahogany bar
which is inlaid with 2,032 un-circulated 1921 silver dollars. The
rest of the bar is a throwback to the rough and tumble days of the
Old West, with original western oil paintings hanging on the walls.
