Voting has closed. The Sand Trap is the winner!

Since we've decided to officially recognize TNB's off-topic room Off-Topic TNB, it might be a good time to give it its own name.

We'll do this the same way we decided on TNB's name; post one room name per answer. If you think the current name is the best option, feel free to create an answer with that option.

The Sand Trap

In case we want another name related to the sport golf. It's off-topic, we've veered off the grass into a sand trap. And once you get really involved in a conversation there, it's hard to leave :P.

One con is that a room called "The Sand Trap" would not be immediately recognizable as the off-topic room for CGCC.

Credit to Ginger for suggesting this in chat.

Golf Overflow

Joke on Stack Overflow, also because the 19th hole is the one players overflow after the game.

The 11th pin

The opposite of is . The most commonly played bowling variant is 10-pin bowling. Thus the "11th pin" would be a place you go to relax after a intense night of bowling.

(Inspired by Ginger's answer)

The Bowling Green

It even sounds off-topic.

The Nth Byte

Play off “The Nineteenth Byte”, plus being able to be on-(ish) or off topic.
