OpenTable Dishes Up Appetizing Conference Room Names

Posted by admin on February 23, 2009


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)
Cheers (Cheers)
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
Cap’n Crunch
Count Chocula
Franken Berry
Shredded Wheat
Special K
Wheat Chex
Boo Berry
Malt-O-Meal
Froot Loops

KITCHENWARE CONFERENCE ROOMS
Spatula
Wooden Spoon
Cutting Board (great name for a board room!)
Pressure Cooker (another killer name!)
Corkscrew
Rolling Pin
Egg Beater
Garlic Press
Waffle Iron

We wish more companies would get creative with their conference room names – it’s a fun way to add personality to any business.
