Dirty Birds $1 Bill

21 12 2008

On one of my last days living life in San Diego we went to one of my favorite Pacific Beach bars, Dirty Birds.  The walls of Dirty Birds is decorated with $1 bills that have been drawn and made into a unique creation by beach/bar-goers.  My friend Jackie gave me a $1 bill so I could make my mark on the bar wall before my departure from San Diego.  My creation:  a psychedelic George Washington.
