CNY11 : Year of the Dog Party

Our 11th annual Chinese New Year bash was a howl. The pack gathered. Tails wagged. Perhaps butts were sniffed, but I admit to nothing.  Much General Tsao’s chicken was consumed. And all our booze was gone by the end of the night. And nobody ended up in the pound. I call that a win.

Their platform addresses the need for a safe, secure and legal system of marijuana commerce. Without PayQwick, retailers and producers / processors are saddled with cash only transactions and struggle with the issue of holding large amounts of cash on site, making them a target for robbery.
