Well Frisco is in Texas, but I'm wondering what anyone in San Francisco would be jealous of? The humidity in DC?

I call it heaven, but I was corrected by the townsfolk, who reminded me that heaven is just a way station en route to the ultimate Nirvana, which is Arvin.
Even the name is majestic!

No, I think they're jealous of my hip slang. I love The Fran, great weather and great eats and great vistas

Its either San Francisco or "The City" unless you're part of the younger hip-hop/rap crowd who've latched onto Frisco. Being most live on the other side of the bay it doesn't really matter - its not their town.

"the fran"?

That's a new one. I guess it's people from "the York", "the 'lanta", and "the Angeles" who call it that.
