[Bar owner, Patrick Hughes]
“It would be great to be the first bar and restaurant in the United States sold for bitcoin."

"I thought the guys with the bitcoin have been making a killing. And perhaps some of those guys that are flush with the bitcoin may want to legitimize the currency and get into this business. So, I thought it would be good publicity and also it would be great to be the first bar and restaurant in the United States sold for bitcoin."
"This would be a good time for somebody young, fresh blood to get in here and go for it, like I did when I was 26 years old and opened my first place. Now I'm 56, and maybe it's time for somebody else, because I am tired."
