Doing what they do best, the folks at The Huffington Post linked to another site to cull material for yet another somnambulistic list of something men should care about but probably don’t: a list of Top 100 Cities For Men, or some such. (100 cities? Isn’t that, like, all of the cities in the U.S.? What city didn’t make that list? Atlantis?) Topping the list: Burlington, Vermont. Listen, I like Ben and Jerry’s and Phish as much as the next guy, but is that REALLY the town of choice for the average American dude? I began to suspect that the data for this survey was skewed. Most of us, I believe, look for things that are a bit more relevant to our lives as men, such as how many microbreweries the town boasts, or what the local music scene is like, or how many of the Die Hard movies were filmed there. I put my crack team of research assistants on the case, and they surveyed…well, me, and came up with this list of Top 5 Cities For Real Men.
