It would work that way too. Dallas and Atlanta could be gay lovers and Houston can be Dallas' brother who doesn't like his boyfriend.

It's definitely true that the threads comparing ATL and DFW tend to be more civil because of the similarities between the two metros. The differences really come down to personal tastes and preferences rather than anything else.
Yes indeed. Grindin is very good about being objective and that was a great post!

I agree with your last point too. It really does boil down to preference. Can we really say one city has better food or a better nightlife? Both have lots of food options and things to do at night, but some will like one more than the other.

Its all a matter of taste.

Never said all have it, buuuut in this case it would be interesting if they did have that kind of attitude "cause somebody gonna get a hurt real bad" - Russel Peters

Houston doesn't care about Atlanta and Dallas. Houston does her/his own thing and the only friend he/she has is New Orleans. Atlanta and Dallas are just some attention-seeking naive girls willing to do anything to make it to the top.

Im about to find out how gay Dallas is. My friend from Los Angeles (who is gay) is coming to visit. He had one request. I must take him to S4 (Station 4). Its the clubs that alot of gay dudes from other places come to when they go to Dallas. Its a very over-the-top club. My wife is out of town so its just going to be us boys!

The good news is, I very rarely have to buy my own drinks at gay clubs. Im not gay, but I am also not homophobic and I also have no shame! Ill be like chum in a sea of hungry sharks!

And I have some oceanfront property in Arizona to sell to you...and I bought a new, shiny shovel at Lowe's this weekend too? Keep em coming! Hilarious.

If anything, Atlanta doesn't think about Houston all that much. But the Dallas-Houston rivalry is legendary.

Your post is spot on. You missed the one BIG thing that would happen though. Houston will be interjected into the discussion. See below.
