We're having so much fun at CultureMap that we decided to spread the word to Dallas. CultureMap Dallas launched today and I encourage you to take a look at our sister site because it offers a new take on a fascinating city we may think we know but don't fully understand.
As a Houstonian who is proud of our city, I'm quick to brag about how much better H-Town is. But I've got to admit, looking over the CultureMap Dallas site, I may have to rethink my arguments.
The format may look the same at CultureMap Houston and CultureMap Austin, with a great mix of news and information on the arts, city life, entertainment, fashion, food and drink, home and design, innovation, real estate, society and travel. But CultureMap Dallas specifically hones in on what it's like to live in the vibrant north Texas city and all the things to do there.
As a Houstonian who is proud of our city, I'm quick to brag about how much better H-Town is in so many different areas. But I've got to admit, looking over the CultureMap Dallas site, I may have to rethink my arguments.
Led by editor-in-chief Jennifer Chininis, a longtime Dallas magazine journalist, the CultureMap Dallas team includes a crackerjack group of journalists, including ace restaurant reporter Teresa Gubbins, who really know the city and are committed to bringing their knowledge and unique perspective.
Among the great reading in today's CultureMap Dallas:
- The 5 most significant homes on the market right now
- Note to the NFL: Thanks to you, replacement refs are ruining the season
- Leggings, leather and lots of layers: Mockingbird Station tells Dallas what to wear
- According to Travel + Leisure, Dallas kinda stinks (I couldn't resist adding this one)
- More stunning than the art and the bidders: MTV RE:DEFINE raises more than $1 million (see, Houston's not the only city with million dollar fundraisers)
- Street tacos and family recipes coming soon at Soleo Mexican Kitchen (and Dallasites love to eat out as much as we do)
I expect a friendly rivalry to continue among all three major Texas cities, as CultureMap teams do their darndest to bring you what's best about their home towns. We will collaborate at times; we will argue at times; we will laugh at times, too. And we'll work to generate discussion and support strong points of view.
But there's one thing we all agree on: There's no place like Texas.
