You said there was nothing but sprawl outside the strip. That's just not true.

But really we should just leave it at this because this is becoming tiresome (at least for me it is).

Las Vegas doesn't have sprawl? Wow, that's news to me...

Las Vegas should be in the top 3 for best food. It's easily up there with NY. There are so many world-class chefs opening restaurants over there. I'd say it's much higher than Houston.

The ranking of the Las Vegas restaurants is well known.

For instance check Guide Michelin...ohh but you can't. Houston is not in it...

Well how about the good old American Mobil Guide...

Five Stars - Two in LV Darn none in Houston...

Four Stars - Six in LV Well anyway there is 1 in Houston...funny Dallas has 4.

Try Fodor or any of the other guides.

Houston is simply not on the Foodie scene. That review by the way was just over two years old. Could not find anything more recent that mentioned Houston?

Las Vegas is also one of the few places in the country Gordon Ramsey has a restaurant. I've traveled all over, and I have to say that the food quality/restaurant selection was the most similar to here in NY.

I've noticed people in Houston are very uptight. I've noticed it from this message board, and also from this Texas Trespassing Shooting

"The boy, his 5-year-old sister, their father and a family friend were off-roading near a residential area about 40 miles northeast of Houston when they were shot after stopping so the children could go to the bathroom. The Houston Chronicle reported that a sign in front of the suspects' home reads: "Trespassers will be shot. Survivers will be reshot!! Smile I will."

Yes because stuff like this never happens in NY. I mean, all cities don't shoot people 40-50 times TWICE with one of them being innocent people. Oh and BTW, this didn't happen in Houston. It happened in a county northeast of Houston that's not even part of the Houston metro area.

Ok, so that's even worse, it was in a small town in Texas and not in the city.

I never hear of adults purposely killing children here...
