Kind of funny, yet I don't know if I like the idea or not. When I travel abroad I don't want to see American culture, I prefer to see the local colors :D

But if it helps the town as a whole, that's fine. It also becomes a target, though.... :(

I don't see anything wrong with Rick's Cafe in Casablanca. It seems that the locals have accepted the new kid on the block.

"Rick's Cafe opened on March 1, and the mayor of Casablanca told CNN that Rick's, which is near the port, is seen as part of Casablanca's urban redevelopment."

I see it as capitalism. We have a lot of foreign ownership in this country.
