The Amazon Kindle mobile reading device comes with their NowNow service included, where you can ask any question you like and you get a response from a paid human researcher. I asked a question and got the unexpected answer below.
I do believe this was an honest mistake by a researcher trying to be helpful. NowNow is a useful and good service.
Update: Amazon resolved the issue. See their follow up responses that I’ve posted in the comments section below.

Subject: RE: What are some good places to learn Spanish in evenings and/or weekends in Manhattan New York City?
What are some good places to learn Spanish in evenings and/or weekends in Manhattan New York City?
Answer from NowNow:
Get a job at any restaurant and work in the back.
Get a job in the back of a restaurant and you will make money and learn spanish from your co-workers.
NowNow, let us be politically correct :-)
If they had said instead a Spanish or Mexican restaurant, that would have been acceptable, but in the back of any restaurant? That’s presumptuous.
If you’d like to suggest a better answer to my question about learning Spanish, please feel welcome to leave a comment here.
