Lots of Pennies

Yesterday, I enjoyed dinner at a new restaurant in DC -- Lincoln Restaurant. The small plate dishes were delightful. The wine list was interesting. But, the best part of the whole experience was the restaurant's decor, which was inspired by the images and words of President Abraham Lincoln.

Lincoln's entire dinning room floor, and some of the walls, are covered in real pennies. Such an innovative design approach! According to their website, the restaurant designer used more than a million pennies to create its copper-colored tiled floor. They even utilized pennies to create these stars on the wall.

The lights outside the restaurant created this interesting reflection on one of the penny-tiled walls. Oh, how I love originality! Vision like that can create such beautiful environments.
