naw, NYC and LA are unequaled top tier for escort services. dc is in second tier, among las vegas, and sf. this is all too ritzy for me tho. my budget for this is only like $20k/yr or so, so i prefer overseas travel.

not all of us involved in politics are sex addicts tho. id say only 50% of my fellow political consultants engage in tihs type of stuff.

Hurr hurr. That's me attempting to laugh sardonically at your very cute attempt at a jab, but my lips are frozen shut.

I think he was just refering to South Beach which in his defense is full of douchebags at least in comparison with neighborhoods such as Coconut Grove or Little Havana.

With Florida's high unemployment rate, you probably won't be receiving any offers from Miami any time soon...

yes i will. not all industries are the same. i will receive offers for florida, california, washington, oregon, ohio, and missouri in the next couple months. i will accept the job in california, unless the work in florida is paying unusually well (which it is actually supposed to this year).

Good news. You and Miami deserve each other.

i realize you don't like most people. but most people will take miami over most of the cities mentioned in this thread.

i had to spend a month in miami a couple years back and loved it. winter music conference was goin on. hot chicks in bikinis everyday. cheap direct flights to anywhere in central america and caribbean in 2 hours, i could go somewhere once per week and it was no different than you driving to ... i dont know whats around your city and honestly dont want to know. good food, good weather, good escorts, good everyting really. what do other places have on miami?

omg, you have no friends right now, JUST SAYING.

seriously, not to many people would list miami up there. even the dumbest people in the world hate that place and that includes the cast of jersey shore.

to say that Minneapolis isnt a cool place is pathetic. we have some of the strongest art communities and theater communities out there, but then again its all up to opinion.

the whole temperature thing is a little over-done too. we are PLENTY warm, its only winter a couple months of the year and people realize that.

to make fun of the twin cities is to make fun of 3.5 million people PLUS the people who commute there from other cities and even other states.

Is it because this guy is bashing Minneapolis while praising Miami or do people up there really have something against South Florida?!

BTW, if the cast of the Jersey Shore really didn't like Miami. By all means I hope they let all of Seaside Heights know how horrible it was down here. South Beach doesn't need anymore of them.

I was talking about the type of people in the rest of the country who think Miami is cool and move there, in my experience they are mostly douchebags and bimbos. People who are actually from south Florida I have no beef with.

As a Minneapolitan, I actually love south Florida. My "2nd hometown" is Fort Lauderdale. And I like the vibe of South Beach (call me crazy!). My comments are to be taken with a grain of salt.

That said, I don't think south Florida is a paradise by any means. People criticize Minnesotans for living in a hell-hole climate for 5 winter months of the year. Well, south Florida is an equal hell-hole for 5 summer months as well.

I have no illusions about either place. In my ideal world, I would happily live in MSP for six months (summer!), and MIA for six months (winter!).

Summers can be too much for me here in Minnesota on the occasional day when it's 98º and humid. I can't even fathom having to deal with those kind of oppressive temperatures day in an day out for months on end.

At least you have the luxury of having a large body of water nearby to cool things down. I don't have the benefit of having that since Houston is nearly 50 miles away from the Gulf of Mexico.

if your city didnt make the list, it's not because i forgot, it's because i don't think you're city is cool enough to be on the list. meaning i think it sucks.
