wow, so reading all about the sexual politics of the coasts is incredibly exciting. I think here we're more conditioned to hunkering down for the winter. =] Find a nice girl, bang her brains out, and don't leave the house. Go camping when it thaws. We like to think about it, we like to talk about it, but getting too crazy just isn't in the cards for most of the reserved midwesterners.
Places like Miami and Vegas and to a certain extent Denver or SF seem like lala lands to me. Places where you can go for a couple years if you're young and have money, or you're involved enough in the entertainment industry of some sort. they're fun, they're exciting, lots of beautiful people, lots of money, lots of coke, but not a lot of reality. Not a lot of sustainability. And really high bar tabs. Not for me.
