Thanks for the support. It's right across the street from the Indian restaurant we signed up. The owners are friends; that's how it happened. We're hoping it spreads and we can make a Berlin out of the area, but it takes time. If you are near Vancouver, and would like to volunteer to give a presentation or conduct an activity related to Bitcoin, please let us know. We plan to bring students from a major local university, and they have learning to do.

Good for you guys!

When I lived in Yaletown I used to go to Blenz everyday at Helmcken and Hamilton. Does Matt still own that location? You should tell him to get on it as well.

This is exactly the kind of thing that will push bitcoin into mainstream usage.  I LOVE that you guys are leveraging each victory on other vendors and playing the competition up. 

This is a microcosm of the revolution.  I salute you!
