Proper? Slang? It's all good

If you're entering a restaurant or a neighborhood to your city's dictionary, try to think of a common nickname for that local cultural staple. If there is a nickname for it, that is the epitome of the local flavor that defines City Dictionary. So, go ahead with the proper name for the entry, but also consider creating another entry for the nickname. Then, by creating reciprocal links between the two entries with our "Related Words" feature, you can teach some local novices an important bit of local language.
