Bitcoin 'farmers markets'; where artisan stalls, food stalls and various other sellers get together in a city square and sell their goods for bitcoin. This could be a monthly thing where everyone can get together and maybe even have some temporary bitcoin vendors set up from localbitcoins.
Bitcoin Streets: in every city there are usually eccentric streets where the edgier more interesting shops congregate and would probably welcome something like this. In London (UK) there are many streets near covent garden that would be perfect for this. If they all took it these streets could be hangout places for us bitcoiners and it would be a good way to start spreading the idea.
Bitcoin Bars: I'm talking here about built from the ground up bars for bitcoin; where the entire payment system from the menu to the tables would be set up to use bitcoin.
