Earlier yesterday, I was conversing with a colleague about towns with funny, or otherwise notable, nicknames. WeGo for West Chicago is the only one I could come up with, but I knew there had to be more! So, I posed the question on Facebook.
Thanks to the fans of this great radio station, we have a rather complete list of town nicknames from around the area!
Click on the Facebook post for the complete list, but here are a couple of my favorites (note – these nicknames in no way represent my feelings to any particular town).
Bolingbrook – The Brook!
Hanover Park – Hangover Park
Saint Charles – St. Chuck
Plainfield – Trainfield
