Chinatown Meet Up Game: Sausages for Bitcoins

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next to the Vancouver Chinatown Park & Garden, a new restaurant is now accepting bitcoins! They're called Bestie, and what they actually sell is authentic German street food. Pretzels, Kohlslaw, pickles and fries, and best of all, sausages! My favorite is the currywurst (comes with curried ketchup). The owner's name is Dane, and he is super nice. They'll be licensed to sell beer soon, but for now we're doing take out, due to space considerations and to explore Chinatown a little.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bestie actually gets a couple of their items (like the tea) in Chinatown, and it's a fun place to explore. When you come to Bestie, you will get your takeout food along with a shirt pin, which allows other group members in Chinatown to know you can be safely approached for Bitcoin conversation. I will be at Bestie until at least 7:30 PM, possibly later if they have their license by then. We will head in groups to the Vancouver Chinatown Park & Garden, and use the entrance to the park seen in the above photo. Once you make your way there, you must find your fellow Bitcoiners and relax by the pond with your sausage. If you are lost or coming late, please text me at[masked].

 

 

Those of you without enough satoshis may still get sausage using cash, debit or credit, but the topic of today will definitely be Bitcoin! Do you have any bitcoins? How did you make them? What do you like about Bitcoin, and how far do you see bitcoins spreading further down the road? We can discuss ideas for the future, for both our Meet Up and the currency revolution, and the tech-savvy can share their projects and thoughts. Even if you're new to Bitcoin, you can have a lot of fun meeting all kinds of new people!

    Andrew thanks for your efforts. I agree we can do better than Bestie next time. I wouldn't say no to another outdoor meeting (with an indoor backup). If the weather looks good we can choose to bring our own beverages and food.

      Also, in terms of outdoor events, we have the option of a discount outdoor yoga class for bitcoins

      I was never much of a yogi, but I'm curious who else is into that.

    The venue was awful, so small and the food was a sample. I don't think I would participate in another meetup in this place.

      As an FYI, you can come but not eat at Bestie if you want to. Bestie was not the venue. Chinatown Park was the venue. The idea was to meet at Bestie for food if we wanted to (I thought it was a fair price at under $9; I expect to pay at least $12 minimum for an American-sized meal), then we walked to the park to talk and enjoy the weather. We will probably do something similar in the future, but next time I might like if we had other venues in Chinatown to stop at to make it more of a "tour" rather than just a walk to the park. And the weather has to cooperate, again.

    The conversations and company at the Meetup were superb as always, although the venue could be better. The portions were a bit too small for a proper meal, while the restaurant was too small and too crowded to stay around and order more. The place seems ideal for groups of 4 meeting up and ordering multiple courses during a conversation.

      I thought about that, but the government is taking too long to process their liquor license. German sausage needs German beer

    Time to get my Magic Sausage Card :)

      Now that we have fixed their technical problem, I believe Bestie sells everything in BTC, not just the sausage cards, anymore. Although, the sausage cards are admittedly cool, and you can still get one.

      I backed them on IndieGogo, so I have one with my name on it already :)

    It almost certainly won't rain, tomorrow. I was worried, because you never know with Vancouver, but apparently God likes Bitcoins, too! This implies that the meeting location/Meet Up details will most likely not change. Hope everybody comes to enjoy the weather with us!
