None of that matters. Grapico will find some way to make all of that irrelevant. Maybe he'll get clever again and use one of this uber cool "yo mama" jokes.
Im not the one claiming Atlanta is the capitol of sophistication. BUT I can also make more of a case for Atlanta than Houston that's for sure.

Why am I not surprised you would go for the insults when you cannot defend what makes your city so sophisticated.Typical.

I would like to point out that "Beaux Arts" doesn't have anything to do with sophistication. I refers to a style of neo classical architecture popular from 1880 to 1920.

Beaux-Arts architecture - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote me where I said Houston was sophisticated, and please make your point of why Atlanta is more sophisticated than Houston. I need a good laugh.

So i'LL BITE!

Why Atlanta has more sophisticated than Houston?

Higher Educational attainment

More high end shopping,restaurants and 5star hotels

Better air connectivity

Atlanta has hosted more national and international events

More people visit Atlanta internationally and nationally
Atlanta is visible in the media and entertainment regularly with movie production and music

Atlanta has a more recognizable history and associations are synonymous with it(MLK Jr,Olympics,Coca-Cola,CNN,)

Atlanta is and Alpha -
Houston is Beta +

In the end both cities have the same level of sophistication

More high end shopping and restaurants is up for review.

Houston has more Fortune 500 Companies

Larger arts scene as far as full time resident companies.

More billionaires and High Net Worth Individuals

More foreign trade and consulates along with being a gateway to Latin America.


Again, I would classify them both on the same level of sophistication.

I think people in Denver and Dallas are very sophisticated in things like dress, cars, wine, food, etc, a lot more so than places like Oakland, Baltimore, etc. Philadelphia has a large number of urban poor, much more so than Austin and Denver. So while there is an element of old money in Philly, I think the AVERAGE Denver resident is more sophisticated in their tastes than the average Philly resident. Denver is a predominantl white collar, middle class, and suburban region while Philadelphia has a large blue collar component, and a large ghetto and illegal alien component as well. (There is nothing wrong with blue collar, there IS something wrong with ghetto). My experiences in Philadelphia have not been very pleasant and the area did not leave a positive impression on me. I did like it more than Los Angeles and New Jersey though.
