Fiction help: Name something a math genius could do to improve a bar.

Writing a script, need a few believable, throwaway lines for a character. A guy running a TGI.Friday's-like bar praises his bartender, a math genius, for giving him an idea that saves money and improves the business overall. An example of outside-of-the-box thinking that enforces that our math-genius-in-disguise really is a genius. Bonus points if the idea skirts the line of legality -- something funky with accounting, maybe?

I'll give you an example. In the movie Phenomenon
, John Travolta's character gives a bar owner a sketch showing a way he can restripe the building's parking lot to add extra spaces and make the lot safer at the same time.
