I voted for Perl Restaurant, but I think a Perl Pub is closer to what I'm thinking.

    "...a Perl Pub is closer to what I'm thinking."
    But what would it be called?

    "The Perl Before Swine" perhaps? :-)

      What about "The Perl Hacker"
      "The Gentleman Winner" ? (see "Neuromancer")

      Oh, fun! How about...

      • The Camel's Hair
      • Dromedary Draught
      • The Camel's pack
      • The Pathological Camel
      • The Dirty LAMP

      Maybe we should be putting this in the polls quest...

    a Perl brewery

      Well, a brewery is a specialized kind of factory, while I think that a generic factory would be more in the spirit of Perl: actually I imagine a Perl Factory as one which could at the same time brew the finest beer and ship out microchips. Or... chocolate!

    D'Oh! A pub!! Worse luck nobody suggested it while still in ideas quest phase: I would have certainly included it in substitution of or in addition to the restaurant. But of course I should have thought of it myself: it would have actually been a close competitor to the dojo. However if you ask me, I would make a hybrid of both, a pobjo? Isn't Perl supposed to take the best from what's around anyway? Train, meditate, find the Way and follow it, and then just have a fresh pint of draught beer, which may well be part of the Way, after all!

      Perhaps not Pobjo
      No life forms
      Too Hot

        If it's so hot they definitely need some fresh beer. And perhaps some enginereed Perl camel...
