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