Who’s accepting bitcoins locally?

While it’s great that some online stores accept bitcoin, for the currency to really take hold it needs to be accepted locally.  But how do you find these cafes, mom-and-pop stores, or even national chains that accept bitcoin?

/btc-ok is a way for local business to post that they take bitcoin and a way for bitcoin holders to know where to go.  Think of it as the sidewalk placard / chalkboard in the above photo, but it reaches a distance of 2 miles instead of 3 feet.  And the more visibility local business have that take btc, the less others will be afraid to join in.

We are building the local web and sharing a new way to use it each day.
