Plaza versus Placita

God bless everyone for caring, but the Placita is between the Tap and the Electric Company building. That thing off of Mesa where the work isn’t getting done is the Plaza.

I’ve dropped quite a few domestics off at the Placita (though not within the last twenty or thirty years), so it’s not just a distinction, it’s a difference.

Mistakes like that get compounded through popular usage till they’re not even wrong anymore. So stop it. Local landmarks don’t deserve getting muddled by the hipper-than-thou well-intentioned. Stop it.
