When it comes to what it really means to be HIP, that's Houston's game, fair and square.

Dallas is ritzier, but Houston is more cosmopolitan in the sense that it is truly the most international town in Texas. The city that opens its doors to the world.

And while Dallas certainly dominates the world of fashion and luxury, Houston isn't lacking in this area at all. It has its own chichi crowd of "beautiful" women and men.
Houston is home to more Miss Texas' than Dallas. What does that tell you?

Oh & LOL @ the Wiki link to make your point regarding humidity.

Wow, this obviously proves how amazing Houston is. Please tell us more. While these are definitely interesting facts I don't see how this shows how amazing Houston is. You're a trip. I still haven't figured out why I haven't put you on ignore yet, guess I'm a masochist and get too much of a kick out of the crap you constantly post.

San Francisco has Houston (and Dallas for that matter) beat in all these categories in my opinion. I really dont think there is much comparison

is comparing houston to san francisco something you really want to do ?

SF is an awesome place to visit but thats it, no one in their right mind short of a michael moore class of mouth-breathing liberal would choose to live there over houston.

comparing restaurants is also very subjective. Once again, SF is where you visit, not live.
If you think texas is all about bbq and tex-mex, you're showing your ignorance.

It tells me that Houston has more Miss Texas winners than Dallas.

The TV show "Dallas" should have been set in "Houston".

Houston has always had that hardcore boom/bust mentality being the world's oil town.

Dallas kind of stole Houston's image in the 1980s.

Now this is just silly. You could also say no one in their right mind short of a ultraconservative, minority-lynching Jesus freak would choose to live in Houston over San Francisco. We all know this is a laughably untrue stereotype-driven generalization. I'm sure there are a number of Republicans in San Francisco, and I'm sure some live there by choice.

Actually it can go either way; Houston is tops when it comes to things like Tex-mex, seafood, cajun/creole/ southern,etc

It's all in what you prefer; however, you're correct in SF beating us in many things. I don't see history as something to compare because no history is more better than another; the Battle of San Jacinto was very significant along with many inventions created here in Houston which have remained relevant til this day.

I dont think it is insecurity. I think most people, no matter where from, get defensive when you're from elsewhere and criticize their hometown. The place they identify with. Its like people from New York, L.A. or Chicago; they've known their city's weak points long enough, and dont want to hear 'outsiders' whining and repeating them.
