Lies. Like most of us, you have a tendency to zero in on the disagreeable opinions to the point where you completely overlook the instances where I've given credit to Atlanta where it was deserved.

Backhanded or not, my opinions of the city are honest and sound. I lived there and have earned the right to call it an overrated snoozefest if I so choose.

+1, I was there for a week and it doesn't hold a candle to dfw or Hou. I agree with whoever questioned adding atl into a discussion with dfw or hou.

But as a black mecca, which this topic is about, it's an undeniable beast of a metro

No, I simply said what you did; I didn't go into detail.

Well you're not unreasonable for the most part; the instances where you gave Atlanta "credit" were just you being factual. And yes, the compliments are backhanded. Just own it.

Lol, doesn't hold a candle how? All three are major metros offering practically the same amenities. As a visitor, you might prefer one over the others but no one is going to walk away thinking one offers substantially more overall than the others, even with Atlanta catering a bit more to tourists.

But getting back to the topic at hand, here's a different kind of ranking to consider:

I know for a fact that Houston offers more than Atlanta, especially culturally.

Accusing people of certain posting behavior when you aren't willing or able to support it is simply insulting. Bad forum decorum.

I agree. Dallas and Atlanta are much more comparable, but Houston is distancing itself from these two. It's food scene alone is already in a different league.

Houston has an edge in terms of its cultural venues while Atlanta has an edge with specialty/niche museums and probably recreationally. Again, overall, they are in the same league with respect to metropolitan offerings.

I simply call it like I see it, Mr. "tell it like it is" Texan.

On what basis do you think Houston is distancing itself from the others?

With turmoil in OPEC, oil prices are predicted to plunge into the forseeable future. It's like some shockwaves already hit Houston's economy but the tsunami is on the way. Atlanta and Dallas are more comparable in the fact their economies will thrive with lower energy prices. That's where the distancing will come from.

Houston's overall food scene may stand out over Atlanta's, the restaurant scene isn't signifcantly better though.

This is a rather interesting list.


It's no shock that DC is on this list though. It's another reason why I think DC is #1.
