Residents of Worcester, Massachusetts finally have something to do with all the Monopoly money they’ve won over the years.
Ralph’s Tavern on Wednesday accepted the bogus currency as a form of payment from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. “The idea came about during one of those after-midnight discussions after a couple of frosty beers at Ralph’s,” says spokesman Eric Lindquist. “We joked back and forth about it, until owner Scot Bove said, ‘I’m in.’”
There’s actually a motive behind the bar’s apparent madness. Hasbro recently announced a Worcester-themed version of the popular board game, and Bove is hoping that Ralph’s will be included as one of the properties, Lindquist adds.
