    As for pizza, real pizza is thin crust, slightly burned without too much sauce or grease.

    Someone from Kentucky has no business giving pizza advice to those of us from the tri-state area - or even chicago.

    Chicago is an amazing place to visit, especially in the Summer. The places that are dangerous are so far away from the heart of the city that you would need to seek them out, unlike a place like NOLA where you could literally walk into the ghetto from Bourbon and get stabbed.

    I liked Chicago a lot when I visited. Despite it being 100 degrees with 1000% humidity.

    LA, and I literally thought I was going to melt. It was horrific.

    Not sure if it was unseasonably hot & humid, but there was no breeze whatsoever.

    Trust me, I have no desire to visit NO either.

    Probably psychological to be honest because I have no worries about walking through the south bronx after midnight.

    Yeah humidity sucks, which is why you should not envy any of us that live East of the Rockies at all. Chicago can get hot and humid, just like a place like NYC can. The entire inland U.S just seems to bake in an oven once Summer arrives, and then you add in unbearable humidity where large bodies of water can be found aside from the West Coast.

    Isn't Oakland making a relatively big turnaround? I've started to hear that it's a pretty big hot spot for a lot of 20-somethings to live.

    Poor hipsters that cannot afford SF, no doubt. They are probably putting their life in peril.

    Oakland is close enough to downtown SF (and easy enough to commute to and from) that it will be rehabbed if it hasn't begun happening already.

    Edit: Plus there is a pretty good sized airport there. When I fly into the Bay Area, I never go SFO, I always fly into Oakland. Much easier.

    That is prime real estate too, which is shocking to think it hasn't been properly developed.

    NOLA was fun. Of course, I had my EDC with me at all times, but I wasn't worried anywhere I went.

    Oh I love NOLA, as it is in my top three American cities, but I have never been once where I wasn't offered to buy drugs of some kind. First time I went as a teenager a guy came up to our group and offered us some heroin. Avoid La Quinta Inn's whenever possible.

    I don't think anybody offered us heroin, but I'm not entirely sure.

    La Quinta's are the lowest of the low on my list of hotels I'd book. Just a smidge below some dude's dead dog's doghouse.
