Comment of the Day: No "LoWe," But No "The" Montrose Either, Please

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

We wrote about how upset we were that Travel & Leisure magazine said Houston was not particularly a hipster-friendly town, as assessed by a microbrew-heavy matrix.

One reader noted that T&L said people call Lower Westheimer "LoWe."

That's VeFu.

(You know, "very funny", among us hipsters.)

(Ok, maybe I just made that up.)

I still get irritated by "The Montrose." It's Montrose, people. Unless you also like to say, The Bellaire, The Memorial, and The Katy, in which case, be my guest.

Anyway, great article, Mr. Lomax. I laughed even more than at the original T&L list. (Apparently, microbrews, coffee shops, and anything considered "techie" makes you a hipster magnet, since most every city on the list had at least 2 out of 3.)
