Forbes magazine named you the "Hardest Drinking City in America." This does not surprise me. This past weekend, while I worked at my second job and drafted future blog posts, most of my friends were out on the river tubing and binge drinking.
Most of the news articles I've read blame Austin's student population for this dubious honor. However, as a true native Austinite, I blame MTV's "The Real World: Austin" and "all those expensive condos going up downtown."
Anyway, Austin... Enjoy the notoriety while it lasts. One of these days, you'll stop being so trendy.
