Portland, OR isn't even the best Portland, and I'm not even including the cement

If it's so "alpha" then why don't you live there, since you consider it #1 in the Midwest? Do you just like to be miserable, or is there more to being #1 than what others think? While we're at it, let's bring Milwaukee into the discussion, since it's your current home and you clearly prefer it to the other "elite" Midwestern cities.

My point is that's it's not necessarily obvious depending on the conversation. Chicago is clearly #1 in the Midwest in a lot of ways, particularly: entertainment, cosmopolitan/worldly, size, and arguably, location. Chicago is clearly <#1 in a lot of other ways, so much so that you and I both choose not to live there. So while it's relevant to include Chicago amongst the Midwest elite, it's not necessarily relevant in every discussion regarding Midwestern cities, just like Seattle or San Francisco doesn't get randomly inserted into this discussion from Portland haters (er...kinda-likers).
