Coming back from Make Music Pasadena on Saturday, I learned that one cannot buy a Gold Line ticket with a two-dollar bill. (This is my own $2 bill, snapped to illustrate this post; the color coordination is incidental.) The guy who tried using his $2 bill in the ticket machine was so earnest — and surprised it didn’t work — and also muttered something about Sacajawea dollars. So for future reference, L.A.: Keep your $2 bills as good luck instead of trying to put them in a Metro machine.
