Reader: Swear to God, If You Don't Stop With the LoHi and SoBro...

Does every newly hot Denver neighborhood need a nickname? LoHi was just part of Highland — or was that the Northside? — until Lola helped start the transition that turned that area into a major dining destination almost a decade ago. The Butcher Block was one of the few spots where you could grab a meal in the warehouse district before it became RiNo and another hipster hot spot. Now people are looking for a new name for the area behind Union Station, where The Pig & the Sprout opened last week. Suggests Howell: 

NeBehiUnSta.

Or an unpronouncable symbol, like Prince in the early '90s: "The Neighborhood Formerly Known as The Neighborhood Behind Union Station."

And then there's that stretch of Broadway that keeps adding clubs and restaurants, including Moxie. Says Sarah: 

Swear to god, if you don't stop with the SoBro.....

Adds Mark:

It always will be the antiques district to me!

Do you use neighborhood nicknames? Which new name irritates you the most?
