2010-05-22: Bitcoin Pizza day

Laszlo Hanyecz [Florida], Bitcointalk post #137:

Pizza for bitcoins?
May 18, 2010, 12:35:20 AM:

"I'll pay 10,000 bitcoins for a couple of pizzas.. like maybe 2 large ones so I have some left over for the next day. I like having left over pizza to nibble on later. You can make the pizza yourself and bring it to my house or order it for me from a delivery place, but what I'm aiming for is getting food delivered in exchange for bitcoins where I don't have to order or prepare it myself, kind of like ordering a 'breakfast platter' at a hotel or something, they just bring you something to eat and you're happy!
I like things like onions, peppers, sausage, mushrooms, tomatoes, pepperoni, etc... Just standard stuff no weird fish topping or anything like that. I also like regular cheese pizzas which may be cheaper to prepare or otherwise acquire.
If you're interested please let me know and we can work out a deal.

Thanks, Laszlo"

The trade was completed four days later when Jercos [Britain], had two large Papa John's pizzas delivered.
This event has been hailed as the first real-world Bitcoin Transaction.
