Dallas is like a flower; a beautiful, blossoming flower that is beginning to look like something no one has ever seen before. Also, it smells like barbecue. This flower is growing, and in the last few years a lot of people want to come and be a part of this process. Translation: a TON of people are moving to Dallas every single day. Here are some tell-tale signs that you have just arrived:
1. You went to Bishop Arts looking for some kind of fancy gallery. Cut your losses and have a burger and a drink at Boulevardier.
2. You just called it "the 635". Congratulations, you just outed yourself as a Californian.
3. You think you can just head down to Austin every other weekend. Don’t let the fact that both Austin and Dallas are labeled "Central Texas" fool you, it's not close.
4. On a related note, you settled in Frisco so you can still hang in Dallas but get "more house for your buck". Enjoy being banished to suburban hell until that lease runs out.
