Madhu Menon came out of the kitchen long enough to ask: >>I am going to abuse posting privilege here and use this list's brainpower for personal gain. :) Excellent! Hope we can help. >>As some of you may know, I am in the process of relocating my restaurant and lounge. >>I've found an excellent location for the new place Congratulations! ;-) Glad things are going well. >>Here's where I need help. I'm still wondering what to name my new cocktail lounge. >>So do you have any ideas for a name? It needs to be simple, not pretentious, >>and not some foreign name nobody can pronounce right. Oy! Tough order. Something simple and witty to appeal to a hip and urbane educated younger crowd? Something pronounceable by people who speak languages I don't understand? Something that won't offend cultural or religeous morays from traditions I am unfamilar with? And yet something instantly recognizable as fitting in with Shiok? Hmmmmmmmmmm. Lemme think. I would say my best shot is .......... "Minum Lah?". Also rans: - Masuklah - Masalah-Nah! - Heatiness - Drink-Lah - Drinknet - Kali's Palm - The Grotto Too bad it's not a sport's bar: - Sixer's - The Madman's Yorker - The Rabbit Hutch Hey Mon, it's not easy being hip from half a world away ... Or half a century! ;-P HTH, RonL.
