    Default Club Rio: Time for a name change

    With the Pacers having turned things around in their PR department, and with the general shift to a more optimistic future in the last year, I think it's time to leave the name "Club Rio" behind.

    I'm looking for suggestions for a new name for this board. Thanks!

    I'll be first.

    Club Level

    References the privileged area of sports arenas, keeps "Club" in there for good measure.

    maybe "club lounge" --- a little bit more descript than "club room" but I like the above two suggestions just fine

    The Locker Room

    Or maybe The Parking Lot

    Since this is the off topic area

    The Club Level is pretty good.

    "Legends" might work

    "Neto's" would hearken back to happier times, while staying a bar, but would probably be before almost everyone's time.

    "The Fieldhouse"

    "Aisle 25" (from the old MSA restaurant)

    "Freebies"

    Yeah, The Locker Room is the best so far. Not so sure about Club Level or The Club Level. Even balcony folk can post in here!

    And I agree it's time for a name change. Good call, Hicks.

    I like The Locker Room. Club Level is also good. Speaking of Balcony folks, how about The Balcony, or maybe The Rafters? Anything would be an improvement. Even though I understand it's relevance at the time, I always thought that Club Rio was a bit tacky.

    I like the Locker Room.

    My own suggestion is the OT Bored. (misspelling on purpose)

    Or maybe go back to the Pub?

    I have to say that I like the old-school pacers references the best so far.

    And of those, Market Square is far and away the best because of its reference to the downtown Indy meetingplace/landmark.
