So two more of those ubiquitous, specialized city rankings have come out this week. In one, the Brookings Institution ranked Houston 21st in walkabilty of the 30 largest metro areas in America, edging Dallasby four notches
In another, from Men’s Health, Houston did even better, coming in 20th place out of all American cities. And we beat Dallas by four slots in this one too. So Houston, raise a glass and salute your status – we are the 20th Most Dangerously Drunk City in the U.S. of Fuckin’ A.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
