You Know You're From San Antonio when...

You lost your virginity at mission drive-in

You know exactly how to get to the "Ghost Tracks" from anywhere in town.

You think "pro-choice" means flour or corn tortillas.

You've never been to the Alamo.

Your idea of a workout is going to the store to pick up several tubs of Haagen Daas.

You think a health drink is a Margarita without salt.

You think being able to read the Taco Cabana menu makes you bilingual.

You used to live in a neighborhood you wouldn't even drive through now.

You remember the Captain Gus show.

Your subwoofer has twice the value of your car.

Gee, thanks for posting this. I wonder how long it will be before UTSASTUD uses this to launch an attack on us, the weakest links. Because every other city except any in Arkansas are more sophisticated than ours.

This list makes us sound completely lame and stupid. San Antonio is much better than most of this list implies.

It basically means the suburbs...out in the country. When the city was in its infancy the city was all contained downtown (inside 410), and steadily grew to outside 410 and then between 410 and 1604 and now things are booming outside 1604.


I love all of those, even if I do live barely inside 1604. I'm in a facebook group that has this title "you may be from San Antonio if...." and I laugh every time I read it...even if I don't agree with some of them..just because I know the history of the city.

I think the list is about 50% racially, and status quo profiling...not too typical, but then again I live outside 1604!! Btw...you forgot one MAJOR thing:

If you have too many Spurs stickers on your vehicle primarily consisting of old Championships.
(Btw...I LOVE the Spurs, but all these people with the trashy stickers need to get out the scraper!)
