Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Dallas- Ft Worth ranked #27 Drunkest City

Dallas- Ft Worth ranked #27 Drunkest City

Ok, so we have the lowest credit score across the country, but at least people aren't drinking their credit down the tubes!  I saw this list on Forbes after I heard about the list on the radio yesterday.  DFW is ranked #27.  We're behind cities such as Kansas City (#16).  I guess there is nothing better to do in Kansas City except drink since a friend of mine says people don't relocate there unless they're foreced to.

We got beat out by Phoenix (#22)... isn't that a bunch of older, retired people for the most part?  Yes, I know it's getting younger and younger every year, but Phoenix is none for the place to go to retire.

I guess the Denver/Boulder (#15) people need to drink to stay warm.  I always thought of Denver as a very conservative place.

Providence is #9.  Maybe those numbers were skewed because of lack of actual people there.  When you're dealing with millions of people in Dallas, I can see how Providence would squeeze there above us.

I was surprised to see Vegas (#14) and New Orleans (#24) out of the top 10, but I guess they were counting residents, not visitors...  Very interesting list in deed.

So what city is # 1? My guess is Milwaulkee because they make all that beer there.

How did New York Rank?

Yes, Milwaulkee was #1.

Here's the link for the others... I can't remember New York off the top of my head:
