What happened to nightlife on Greenville north of Mockingbird? Even Greenville south of Mockingbird, while it still retains nightlife, isn't nearly as happening as other parts of the city.

The St. Patrick's Day Parade is probably the only evidence that Upper Greenville was once happening. That parade should probable either be cancelled, or moved to Uptown/Downtown/Deep Ellum.
The young professionals moved and so the nightlife followed.

When my dad was single here in the 1970's he & many other young professionals lived in what is now the Five Points area off Greenville north of Northwest Hwy. Then the Village became the big thing in the 1980-1990's. Hence, lots of nightlife along Greenville from Lowest Greenville almost up to Presbyterian Hospital where Austin's iconic El Arroyo had a location.

Then Uptown happened and the epicenter of nightlife and young professional living moved south. The Village & Old Town are still nice areas, just not as happening as they once were. The Five Points neighborhood has unfortunately become one of the most crime ridden pockets in Dallas. I'm guessing one set of landlords worked harder than the others to keep maintained and improvements up?

Yes!! There is nothing wrong with looking presentable. Slippers and PJ pants are not it. Either are yoga pants if you are over a size 2. Even then, you look ridiculous. Also, i know you just spent a week in Cancun, I don't need to see the sand all over your body and feet like you haven't showered for a week. That just happened. Gross.

What is it about the culture of Dallas that lends to this? Has it always been this way?

i disagree Dallas and Texas in general is pretty laid back compared to a lot of other cities i've been to and dpent time in. I can't speak specifically for Seattle, i've only spent a lot of time there. People are pretty casual when going out to restaurants or even at night here.

It tells you allot about the Dallas society to want to take extra measures to look clean, sharp and presentable. Explains allot about their character and personality which can be found more worthy of building trust and relationships.

Presentation IS everything.

Sharing and interesting article I ran across. Please have a read.

I think this is less about Dallas and more about the West Coast culture. My friend teaches at a university in Washington and says that students show up wearing whatever they want. In other parts of the country, you won't see students showing up in flip flops and shorts.

Nothing, out in public. But it's not appropriate for a graduate level university course.

I wore them to some of my graduate level library science courses without any problem. I didn't wear them to work or during class observation trips though.

You see students show up in flip flops and shorts in just about every college in the US...
