I had thought about opening a restaurant and using GLBSE to fund it. But theres a few problems with that. 1) It normally takes like 3-5 years before a restaurant starts to make a profit. 2) I have no experience with restaurant ownership 3) Not many investors would be happy with not getting a pay pack for 5 years
Seems like you would automatically have a dedicated legion of patrons if it was opened up in a bitcoin popular area. Restaurants seem like alot of work and if you're food sucks you're screwed. Thats why I think the bar route with simple bar food would be the best option. I'd love to go drink in a bar where everyone in there knew about bitcoin all the time.
One problem is it might be all dudes in there unless you hire Allison to be a waitress..
