SoCo, SoSo, NoNo … Austin Location Cool-speak

So, SoCo (South Congress) has become commonspeak in Austin, TX.  SoLa (South Lamar) is becoming commonspeak, kind of.   The latest to surface (I really like this one) is SoSo (South South Austin). 

 

 

 

Here are my recommendations (some existing, some new, I believe) to add to the list of Austin location cool-speak:

 

Midtown – already exists, runs loosely north of 24th to loosely 2222

 

MidMo – mid Mopac, of course

 

NoLa – north Lamar, I’d say north of 183 and the No, besides north, may suggest do not go there after dark

 

It gets better …

 

NoMo – north Mopac, of course, north of 2222 up to Braker’ish

 

NoNoMo – north Mopac above Braker

 

NoNoNoMo gets you onto the toll road and Pflugerville

 

Or perhaps NoNo – that’s north north, of course

 

I believe I will pass this on to my favorite SoSo contributor, Patti P, to see what her inspired mind creates.  My neighborhood, you ask?  NoMo.

    Just in from COntributOR Patti P: There’s nothing SOSO about me or my creative mind; it’s more like OHNO as I cross all lines (looking twice before the tracks). That said, challenge accepted. I shall GO out in the SOn and bake a few MOre COol Austin LO-cations. MOre to COme.
