Re: name of poker/card room?
A great way to brainstorm is generate word lists. Think up as many word associations as you can between CHRIS (or any other word/name) and FAMOUS PEOPLE (Christopher Columbus, Christopher Robyns, Kris Kringle, etc.). Repeat with CHRIS and PLACES (Christiansburg, Christmas Town, etc.). Repeat with CHRIS and THINGS (Christening, Criss Cross, etc.). And finally, repeat with CHRIS and ANIMALS (Christmas mouse, Donkey that carried Christ, etc.). When you've exhausted your lists, zoom out and see what you've got. What about a Spanish Galleon (Columbus) theme or a Drunken Donkey theme, for example. If nothing jumps out at you, start again with a different word/name than Chris. What else are you into? Associate words with your other hobbies or interests.
