Cleveland Bitcoin Meetup – February 13, 2014
I attended my first Bitcoin Meetup here in Cleveland, Ohio. The meeting took place at David’s Grill and Bar, a very nice place located in Northpoint Tower, a commercial office building on the northeast corner of West 9th and Lakeside. David’s started accepting Bitcoin in 2013. David’s has a bar and restaurant, and this may be one of those hidden watering holes I may have to frequent during my future jaunts downtown.
There were about 20 people who attended throughout the evening, representing hobbyists, business owners, bitcoin miners, and both experienced and new digital currency enthusiasts.

The conversations were lively. We discussed consumer bitcoin technology, regulatory affairs, legal affairs, public opinion, and many other areas of interest. The owner of The Wine Spot, a Cleveland Heights business which recently implemented Bitcoin payment technology, presented his business experience learning about and implementing Bitcoin at his store.
Looking forward to the next Cleveland Bitcoin Meetup:
When: March 5th, 6:15pm
