We have a winner

I had posted a while back about naming my new lounge and offering a prize for the winner. After much deliberation, I am happy to announce that madhav is the chosen one. The new lounge will be called "Moss", which was one of his suggestions. It fits in well with the whole nature theme we have going on. More importantly, Google says there's no bar with the same name out there (at least in the first couple of pages of results.) He wins a special meal + cocktails at my new restaurant when it opens.

Congratulations Madhav! :D

It's a Mick Jagger reference. Very complicated.

Are you asking me or Madhav? I liked it because of the reasons I outlined above. Also it's short, snappy, and doesn't sound too pretentious. Some female friends even called it "sexy". As for Madhav, I think he just wanted the prize. ;)

See, I didn't know that you wanted short, snappy and unpretentious... so everything I sent was long, complex and pretentious... :)

"It needs to be simple, not pretentious, and not some foreign name nobody can pronounce right."

From my original post. :P
