An innovation I like a lot is the london.pm "beer glass stuffed with money".

As mongers arrive, they stick a fiver, tenner, twenty, whatever in a
beer glass, to cover the likely amount of drinks they'll have.  As
drinks are bought, someone takes the glass to the bar and pays with

If you've drunk more than you paid for, then you pay some more.  It's
entirely possible to abuse, but I don't think anyone does.  Mostly, by
the end of the night, there is a bit of money left over, which can be
used to tip the staff or divvied out.

The great advantage though it's not subject to the random fluctuations
of money spent on "your round" ;-)
