So another national "Best Of" list mostly ignored Houston, leaving many frustrated. But not commenter tinyhands, who didn't much care:
When reviewers who have never even been to Houston award us with dubious "Best of" honors, everyone gets all excited and retweets it until even my non-tweeting gramma gets sick of reading about it. Why get so bent out of shape when reviewers who have never even been to Houston ignore us? Just as I would no sooner take advice from a Houston Press writer about any city farther away than one can reasonably drive in a day (no offense), we're clearly not the target audience of reviewers who have never even been to Houston. Thusly I reject the notion that reviewers who have never even been to Houston have any expertise on the subject. Whether it's praise or neglect, I say "meh."
You hear us, Daily Meal? MEH!
