The great toilet paper shortage 2020 has been one of the more bizarre and annoying stories of the COVID-19 outbreak, given that the virus doesn't tend to cause any gastrointestinal issues.

So kudos to the Cambridge Bar and Grill in Cambridge, Minnesota, for thinking of a way to make the best of a bad situation following Gov. Walz's enforced shutdown of dine-in service at the state's bars and restaurants.

For those who were unable to come away from their local grocery store with a pack of TP in the past few days, you can get a roll free when you spend $25 on a takeout order from the bar.

Owner Sean Okerlund told FOX 9 that with his restaurant getting paper from a commercial supplier, he wanted to do something to put a smile on customer's faces.

"When the customers get their order, you hear a genuine laugh and that’s the best thing right now," he told the TV station.

We could have written two separate stories about the Cambridge Bar and Grill this week. In another Facebook post it shared on Tuesday, it revealed the actions of one of its generous customers prior to the bar shutdown coming into force.

Paying just a $6.21 tab, the anonymous customer left a $500 tip for the staff working the Tuesday shift.

"We love our customers! The gentleman counted the number of employees on and off work in the bar and it was 10. Give them each $50 he said.....Wont say from who but thank you from all the gals at the bar! Cheers my friend.....🍻" the bar wrote.
