Cabbie slang

Drivers have nicknames for many places around San Diego. This list will grow as I remember them. We usually limit them to the cab stand, but most have been used on the radio at one time or another.

National City = Nasty City, National Tragedy

Horton Plaza = Ho plaza

Chula Vista = Chula

La Jolla = (Anglicized, exaggerated pronunciation)

Little Italy = Widdo Iddowee (making fun of one particular driver's mispronunciation)

Hardrock Hotel = Hardcock Hotel
