Read about this new local currency in Monday's paper. Does anyone have any more info, such as where one gets Cheers bills, and at what restaurants they are accepted?

Itís a fascinating idea, & I, too, would like to know where to get & spend these Cheers bills.

The article mentioned Foranís was renamed the Grand Trunk Pub. Anyone know why the change?

Rawk nailed it. That was the only reason. I believe it will be called "Foran's Grand Trunk Pub".

Sorry to derail (pun intended) the thread, 4oranges.

So does anyone know where to get said Cheers bills?

i re-read the article and it sounds as if distribution has not begun yet. I'm not clear if we "buy" it or it is just handed out and we all start using it. I hope something gets published letting everyone know who/what/where accepts the currency.

I suppose if this "pilot" program is successful, we'll start hearing more about it. I was just thinking someone here would know those guys and have some more details.
