It's about work, so hopefully it is not off topic. If it is, and someone
says so, well okay then. But you know, tech writers work *with other people*
and sometimes these issues come up. What to do?

What do you think about this one, Whirlers?
I have mandatory business trip scheduled. Today, a list of the "attractions"
for the area, including restaurants, was sent to all of us. The list is on
corporate letterhead and is nicely done. Now, wait for it....

On the restaurant list: Chili's, (ok) Subway (ok), and Hooters... HOOTERS?
What? Did I read that right? Yes.

I am sure there are lots of fans of that chain, but our team is almost half
women. Isn't that on the edge of being offensive? Could that make some
people uncomfortable (there are some rather religious men on the team as
well.) Great place for a teambuilding lunch, or not??

Go ahead, flame away. I really want to know what you think of that as a
"work sanctioned" place to go for a working lunch.
