Dude - just use cash. If they don't accept cash, go somewhere else.
Maybe the resistance should be called The Picnic Club.
Lesson: call ahead and make sure a restaurant will take cash. If they will not, don't go there.
Ghetto Flea Markets,
richwicks saysNo. It's illegal. The excuse is to prevent money laundering. Been this way for a decade.100% false. I have been using them for two years. I fill up $500 every time I buy the card to maximize the activation fee.

If we are talking resteraunts in bay area can't you just walk out without paying? Paying for food in bay area sounds so pre 2010s.
Greek restaurant around here is cash only.
It's much harder for the IRS to know how much money a cash business really made. And that's fine with me.
We don't fill up our automobiles with unknown octane gas, why do we fill up stomach with unknown quality food served by a business whose goal is to maximize profit
This particular place wouldn't let you order without paying by credit card from you table first.No waitresses either, only a QR code to get the menu, and then you have to put in your credit card.I won't go back.Booger saysGreek restaurant around here is cash only.My wife points out two reasons why small family-run places love cash:1. They don't worry about being ripped off by the staff, because the staff is family.2. They don't want to pay the credit card vig of 1.5% or whatever.But there is a third one of course. It's much harder for the IRS to know how much money a cash business really made. And that's fine with me.
@NuttBoxer - In order to get the card, you had to disclose your address and your phone number in order to activate it.
gabbar saysWe don't fill up our automobiles with unknown octane gas, why do we fill up stomach with unknown quality food served by a business whose goal is to maximize profit@gabbar Yes, that's another good point.You have much more control over the food when it's your own picnic, assuming the ingredient lists on what you buy are accurate.

Yorkshire Bruce3 hr agoBring it back to the community. House parties, dinner clubs, garden parties, street parties... neighborhood sports leagues, local bands playing private but open to locals venues, doesn't sound so bad. 74ReplyEm3 hr agoI think in many ways we will be the ones who win thanks to a thriving underground culture.
Say what you will about Ess Eff...SFPD Chief: Restaurants and Cafes That Refuse to Accept Cash Are Breaking the Law
The cashless life won't be worth livingWhile we're all over-focused on "Ukraine," our overlords are moving quietly, and swiftly, to take ALL cash away, in favor of a global social credit system. We can't let them get away with it. ...One way to start fighting this development is to go back to using cash instead of cards as much as possible—starting with #CashFriday, as urged by Catherine Austin Fitts. This means that, every Friday, we use only cash to buy what we may need: https://home.solari.com/cash-friday/.Think about what this development portends: No cash will mean no autonomy, as every purchase that you’ll want to make must be approved on high—approval that will be contingent on your social credit score.
In the “brave new world” scenario speculated on by the World Economic Forum (WEF), people could soon enough – by 2030 – “own nothing and be happy.”Well, perhaps not so fast, because the issue of ownership and questions around it – over anything from computer games, to health choices – are getting ever more relevant, rather than fading into obscurity.One indicator that may or may not fit into that is the curious fact that CDs are making something of a comeback after it seemed they were virtually dead and buried with the music and movie industry shifting resolutely to streaming, and the consumers embracing that shift.Streaming certainly remains far superior in terms of adoption and revenue over any sales and use of physical media, thanks to costs and, above all, convenience – but there may come a time when streaming will hit a plateau, in a world where trust is in ever-higher demand and shorter supply. For some – not many, but many more than in previous years – having their music in their physical possession instead of at the mercy of streaming services is clearly a better proposition.

2. lesson of the day...Quit going to restaurants and find something else to do with your time instead of eating and shopping.
Cash is no longer accepted at Walmart on Saturdays, slowly the "cashless" society is being normalized...Another conspiracy theory coming true.
