The location is near China Town, so they decided something Asian would be good. The job was palmed off to Adam, the non-technical guy here and he ended up finding what looked like a nice Japanese restaurant called Shamiana on Lonsdale Street. He went to the website and had a look and things looked ok, so he rang and booked a table for 5 people tomorrow at noon.
Rob, the official boss, had a look himself at the website afterwards, to see what they had there. He had a slightly more in-depth look at the website than Adam did, and discovered that they were a little bit more than a restaurant. They were, in fact, Melbourne's premium lingerie restaurant! In other words, a strip joint.
The reaction to discovering this is
b) Filing the information for further use, and
c) Cancelling the booking and finding a new place for lunch.
I ended up recommending Yuriya as it's someplace that I have eaten before (thank you nicked_metal for that) that does very good food and I know it's not a strip joint.
I think what I love most about this place is summed up by the reaction to Rob discovering the truth about the first place. No recriminations ("You booked us into a strip club!? Rar rar rar!!!!), no embarrassment, just a lot of laughing, a quick fix of the problem and the filing away of the information for later as they are sure it's going to be important.
I work with geeks, they know they are geeks, they like being geeks and make no claim to be anything other than geeks.
I love this place.
