Reunion Tower’s Observation Deck to Re-Open on — Wait, It’s Called WHAT?

Big Bob has the details about the opening here. (It’s October 5, by the way.) I will instead focus on the name.

Here’s is my short take: SO DUMB. Here is a long one: Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo dumb. GeO-Deck?! That’s the name of a Lego knock-off that your kid will hate you for buying instead of the real thing. That is the name of a fake futuristic and immediately dated office park that failed because its jerky owner refused to come down on rents. Kia wouldn’t come up with a name that bad. Most car companies wouldn’t, with the exception of Toyota, because they named a car The Matrix or whatever. Random capitalization and unnecessary punctuation — is this a tribute to a terrible mid-’90s band? If so, I mean, I guess you have your reasons, though I in no way support them.

GeO-Deck. Why? What’s the point? Are you worried too many people will come and you need to give them a reason not to go? Is that why you gave it the Rooty Tooty Fresh N’ Fruity of observation deck names? THIS IS NOT THAT HARD.

GeO-Deck. Seriously. Ugh.
