Reader: Alamo Placita is the poor, working-class neighbor of Country Club
Highland isn't the only neighborhood going through an identity crisis. While the debate over the changes in Highland continues, the name game has spread south, to the area northwest of Washington Park, where Cafe Byblos Mediterranean Grill will soon open. What, exactly, should this area be called?
Country Club - no. Alamo Placita - yes. This restaurant is opening in Alamo Placita; "We are the poor, working class neighbors of the Denver Country Club."
Have a better idea? Post it in the comments section below. And meanwhile, back in Highland...

All people who hang out in Lohi are jerks in one way or another. Lohi is full of: -skinny jean mustached yuppies. -people from Highlands Ranch who think they're living on the edge because they're eating brunch in a newly gentrified neighborhood. -Lululemon gluten-free mommies with irritating menu substitution requests. -middle aged men who rode in from 4 miles away on $10,000 roadbikes and are prancing around in spandex while sipping their lattes from the REI Starbucks.
What do you think of the changes in Highland? Or LoHi? Join the conversation already under way here -- where Oscar Aguirre, who watched all the changes from his family's restaurant, Rosa Linda's Mexican Cafe, also weighed in yesterday.
