How obnoxious to think that we don't have the same things down here.

As a matter of fact, the VERY SAME bakery you showed in your link just opened a branch in the suburbs of GASP - Atlanta!!!!!

LOL! Alpine Bakery (http://alpinebakeryandpizzeria.com/Alpine_Bakery.html - broken link)

Because you're such the expert on the "outskirts of Houston" right?

And... not only do the 'burbs of NYC have the Chilis as indicated in my previous post, but it also has Applebees (the website doesn't give a static map address, so just google it) and TGIFridays: T.G.I. Friday's® Worldwide - Find Us.

Rachael, for the love of all that's good and holy, just admit your 'burbs are just the same as every other 'burb. It doesn't matter what 'burb you go to anywhere in the US, they're all filled w/ strip malls, corporate restaurants and Starbucks. Some people like it, some people don't, but please stop insisting that yours is unique.

And also, how many panaderias can your neighborhood lay claim to? So it's Mexican and not Italian, so what? You want an ethnic bakery, Texas and the Southwest are littered with those.

I bet Rachael's going to say Long Island 'burbs have the most.

Because... well... NYC has the most, the best, the biggest of everything. NYC is the center of the universe. The 'burbs are anyhow.

why does everyone on this thread continue to talk about houses?

cookie cutter means everything in a persons everyday lifestyle

call your local chili's/applebees and see how busy they are.......

if they are on a wait on a friday/saturday night then you live in a cookie cutter place
