Mike Varney's Chamber of Commerce thinks the "Old Pueblo" is "old hat". His fine group of concerned citizens wants a new nickname for Tucson and a hipper sounding phrase than "old hat". In turn the "Old Pueblo" thinks the Chamber of Commerce is "old hat' and would like to see a more contemporary nickname for El Chamber. Here are 15 choices:

1. The Whacky Idea Bank

2. Suggestion Box

3. Sour Town

4. People who still wear ties

5. The "Haven't looked outside to see what's booming in years" Hacienda

6. Mad Men

7. Carpelot

8. The people who want to change Oracle back to Miracle Mile

9. Same people who are confused by the concept of "Old Tucson".

10. The Anti-Puebo guild

11. "Cubicles", The Show

12. The cast party of Glengarry Glenn Ross

13. The Harrumphettes

14. The Huff Huff Hut

15. The Old Chamber
