Stage three: the feeling local phase
Where you’re living: Still Metro Midtown, but you moved to a two-bedroom apartment
Where you’re going out: In Midtown, but you’re willing to venture to “cool” neighborhoods like Downtown, Montrose, and the Heights
Your mantra: “FYHA”
Go-to activity: Brunch!

You’re even planning a crawfish boil of your own, if the front desk will let you reserve space by the pool.
