Kudos to restaurant reservation company OpenTable (my favorite free service) for having a contest to name their conference rooms.
Out of 51 entries, the winning theme was "fictitious restaurants or cafes from TV shows." Congrats to Julie Hall, the clever employee whose prize is a slick new TV. (How fitting!) Now people can say, "Let's meet in...
Central Perk (Friends)
Cafe Nervosa (Frasier)
The Peach Pit (90210)
Arnold's Drive-In (Happy Days)
Monk's Café (Seinfeld)
The Regal Beagle (Three's Company)
Phil's (Murphy Brown)
Riff's (Mad About You)
McClaren's (How I Met Your Mother)
Moe's (The Simpsons)
A foodie friend of mine works at OpenTable and was kind enough to let me collaborate with him on some names. These were our submissions:
BREAKFAST CEREAL CONFERENCE ROOMS
KITCHENWARE CONFERENCE ROOMS
Cutting Board (great name for a board room!)
Pressure Cooker (another killer name!)
We wish more companies would get creative with their conference room names - it's a fun way to add personality to any business.
