We're No. 1!

And for once it's something that we can really get behind!

SAN ANTONIO -- Lately, the Alamo City has seen its name on a variety of lists -- some good, some spotlighting our range of waistlines.

But this time, we love seeing San Antonio at the top of The Daily Beast's "50 Best Cities for Love."

According to The Daily Beast's story, its staff ranked our nation's largest cities based on marriage and divorce rates, happy population and wealth of bars and restaurants.

(from KENS-5)

I really don't put a lot of stock in these Top 10 (or Bottom 10) lists, but it's nice to not be slammed for being too fat or too lazy or too stupid or any other such arbitrary pronouncement.

For what it's worth, here's how the Daily Beast scored the Alamo City.
#1, San Antonio, TX
Singles: C
Social life: A
Emotional health: A
Marriage: B
Divorce: C
Romantic hotspot: Omni La Mansion del Rio
And here's the rankings for other Texas cities on the list:
#3 -- Austin
#40 -- Houston
#41 -- Dallas
Feel the love, yet?

I do wonder how being at or near the top for drunkenness, fatness, sweaty-ness, & illiteracy plays into that...

Drunk, fat, sweaty, non-readers need lovin' too.
