"ease of communication"
And there's the rub. You're catering to the lowest common denominator of society whose attention span is about as long as the Twitter word limit. As an editor you should hate yourself for being complicit in the bastardization of the English language.
The short version that I learned i Trinidad in 1958: one of sour, two of sweet, three of strong and four of weak.
Looking forward to this place.
Good luck Todd!
Parking lots are gonna be packed at night on Cumberland..
What's all this NoMo business anyway? OH... are you are referring to the area AHWYCSHFATUTO ( After Huger Where You Can Score Herion From a Transvestite Under The Overpass) ? Geez I didn't realize the name had been so dramatically altered to NoMo, a little hipster pretentious but as long as there is more beer slated to be drunk up there I guess I can handle the switch.
Supposedly the place will be called "Egan's Oast", which I have to assume is a joke / working title. Regardless, good to see the Charleston beer scene expanding.
Oh, and "NoMo" sucks too. :D
My comment sounds way bitchier than I intended. Naming this area is a total joke, but we love to see the name we like being used more and more. It's worth a high five every time!
When you use " " it is usually sarcasm, and in this case references http://www.postandcourier.com/article/2011… and http://www.charlestoncitypaper.com/charles…
man of the house, im not on the "creative corridor" train, I think the whole idea of "branding" the neighborhood idiotic
This is hard to watch.
It's the Neck, always has been. You think you can rename it because you own a building there?
Regardless of what we call the area, thrilled that CBX & Company bringing more beer to the area. Let's all drink a few together! Congrats guys. Welcome to the hood.
Kwadjo is not happy with all of this ruckus.
When this "committee" who comes up with names for places decides to invite us to the table, maybe we'll stop pushing NoMo. I own a building up here and have a pretty loud platform for getting the word out, but we were never included in the "official" discussion.
We'll be painting a "Welcome to NoMo, home of the City Paper" on the side of our building one day and that will cement NoMo in the lexicon once and for all! It's a war people, and we think it should be named based on geography and ease of communication and not on some bullshit idea for what a place could potentially be in the distant future (ie. creative corridor).
North Morrison is just fine. Takes up a little more type space, but is familiar with locals, and easier to find for tourists. The area is still a little bit "hoody" but maybe the local gendarmes will patrol the area more often. All I can say is for the new bars and eateries to not keep much cash in the drawers, and make drops into the safe a regular habit. Most folks around here use plastic. And the wait staff needs to keep their tips stored some place other than their pockets. Just sayin'........
How Bout, North Morrison like it has been called for 50 years? Is that not hip enough?
I hated the NoMo at first...but now I'm ok with it. Denver has a NoDo. And it's better than The Neck...which is what it was called a few years back. We can live with NoMo. Let's rally, folks!
Foodmancing, names for areas should be descriptive first and/or have historical significance as opposed to being "creative". Whether in NYC, SF or here in Charleston (Upper King, Lower King, KGB, East Side, Avondale, The Neck, Old Mt. Pleasant) there's no need to go reaching for some wacky moniker to fit. You may not like NoMo, but at least it places you where you are. Last thing we need is to call it something meaningless like Xanadu or Atlantis. As for the "Creative Corridor" you need to get off that train. Too much can change too fast. Look to the Upper King "Design District" designation for evidence of that.
I thought we all agreed to stop calling it NOMO?
