“It’s my favorite place in Dallas, because it’s all different types.” Gay couples. The woman next to her at the bar wore a tank top, jean cut-offs, and boots. I stared at a Dallas beauty queen in a tiny black dress and stilettos.If we learned anything from watching Rocky and Bullwinkle, it’s that Mounties are a LOT dumber than you’d think. Which probably explains the six bars per 1,000 people -- folks gotta warm up somewhere, right?You know what we Much like its baseball team, Boston’s concentration of bars is highly overrated.In other words, yes, it is easy to meet a guy or a girl who claims to be Italian — Bill De Blasio being one of the most shocking examples — as long as you can put up with the fact that they are not really Italian.On the contrary, in Italy, the vast majority of the population — except for immigrants — is 100% Italian: of their ancestors lived in the area that, nowadays, is known as Italy.
I got this letter from a reader yesterday and it’s so important I moved it to the front of the queue. But let’s cut the nonsense: nobody really cares about the best city to start a hot sauce company. What we do care about, however, is where we can get the most action with the least amount of effort. Call it a “college town” all you want, Columbus is actually the largest city in America’s seventh-largest state, and it boasts just over four bars per every thousand people.And to figure that out, we took a list of the 30 busiest US Tinder markets (as provided by the company) and narrowed it down using three important criteria known to increase odds and fuel the flames of "romance": number of bars per 100 people (according to a study by Infogroup Targeting Solutions); percentage of single residents; and lopsided ratios of women to men. Nearly 34% of the city's population is single, and while the male-female ratio is almost even, a lot of those people are, in fact, horny college kids. With six bars for every thousand people and a population that's 35% single, the 29th-most-active Tinder town also boasts So Ho, one of the sexiest neighborhoods in America.Until very recently, if you said you had a “hookup” in Oakland people usually thought it was for automatic weapons or crack.But (THANK YOU HIPSTERS) the newly-gentrified East Bay is now the nation’s 21st-most-active Tinder market, and over 35% of its population is single.Anyway, although technically my legal residence is now in the Caribbean, I often visit my great family in Italy, where I own property, usually several times a year. Well, hopefully, he will ask you, and not the other way around.
