Yet Another Elite Year Gone By: Our Annual Look at What's Hot and What's Not for 2018

You know, this photo is a half-decade old, but it still seems to capture the perpetual, um, zeitgeist that was living in our plastic fantastic planned community in 2017. So once again, we're offering our annual, totally original What's Hot/What's Not list for 2018. Brace yourself for paid parking jokes and the inevitable sense of giant mauvescrapers crowding us in, yet take consolation in an arbitrary numerical ranking that places us incrementally higher than the particleboard hellscape just to our west. Happy New Year!
