Thanks to corporate sponsors, some of our recently added downtown attractions have cool nicknames such as “the ’Delph” and “the GEC.” Shorthand monikers such as these build civic pride and help us more easily identify and steer clear of opposing fans and tourists. With this in mind and in preparation for Fan Fair 2002, we offer these possible nicknames for our new Country Music Hall of Fame:

♦ Atkins’ Attic

♦ The Cash Stash

♦ Chez Bocephus

♦ The Howdy House

♦ The Bubba Bungalow

♦ Gawk-in-the-Box

♦ Betty Ford Center East

♦ The Double-Side Double-Wide

♦ Boot-Scootin’ Bunker

♦ The Fiddle Reserve

♦ Banjo Barn

♦ Dobro Dojo

♦ The Bumpkin Dump

♦ The Pickin’ Coop

♦ Hee Haw Hut

♦ Drawl Hall

♦ Possum’s Parlor

♦ Willie’s IRS Repo Depot

♦ That Twang Thang

♦ The Jiltin’ Hilton

♦ The Garthenon

♦ Yokel Hotel

♦ Club Red

♦ Brick Hick Fix

♦ Our Mother Pluckin’ Museum
