Happy Bitcoin Pizza Day!
That’s right, today is Bitcoin Pizza day and to celebrate it I decided to walk down to Balboa Boutiques where the one and only Panamá Blockchain Embassy @embassypty!
So obviously I wanted the whole pizza day experience. Turns out the blockchain embassy has a bitcoin ATM from Cryptobuyer, which you can use to purchase yourself some crypto:
Also, the shops in the mall several of the restaurants accept Bitcoin/Litecoin/Dash… and guess who is in that select list? An Italian restaurant by the name of Aglio Rosso. So, 2 + 2 = Bitcoin pizza day! Before we all get too excited… I am going to have to be honest… we ran into some issues upstairs at the restaurant. Their terminal to accept crypto was down at the moment for reasons unbeknownst to me. However, the restaurant went above and beyond to really cater to us crazy crypto people:
As you can see, they made us a Bitcoin Pizza! And it wasn’t just one… oh no, we got ourselves two!
By the time we were done taking pictures like crazy, I am sure they were done with us as well. So, we went ahead and took the party downstairs for the second part of the improv bitcoin pizza day photoshoot:
By the way, I really like this next picture. It captures the pizza (although you can’t see the bitcoin loco or much of it), but in the background you get the Bitcoin logo full blown at the entrance of the blockchain embassy. Not only that, you can appreciate part of the space in the reflection on the glass wall. You can see the different crypto shirts they have there for sale as well as some indistinguishable reference books, cups and things. I think it really capture as much as you possibly could in one picture!And of course, the restaurant was so happy to see us take our craziness downstairs that they sent us a Bitcoin Brownie to keep us there:
Just kidding ^^, they love us! By the time I decided to take a picture and pulled out the camera… the bitcoin symbol had already morphed into this. But you can sort of tell there was a B there whose two vertical lines just didn’t make it pass a few minutes. Guess syrup at Panamá room temperature just doesn’t work for writing.
Anyway, for something that happened completely out of the blue I guess we did ok. As always, the staff at the Bitcoin Embassy and Aglio Rosso were very cool and accommodating. If you are ever in Panama, be sure to come on a Tuesday to the Blockchain Embassy, buy one of their embassy pty white shirts and then head upstairs to Aglio Rosso to enjoy 50% off on your meal! That’s right, Tuesdays they have a promo where they give each person wearing a white shirt 50% off their check (don’t make the mistake of not wearing one hoping to get the discount from another guest. They only apply the discount on the consumption of the person/people wearing the white shirt.) So, what are you waiting for? Come on over!
Here you can find a gallery of the rest of the “awesome” pictures we took to celebrate bitcoin pizza day.
