I was born in Ft. Worth and live in Dallas now, and I am not insulted by this post in the least. It’s just a party theme, and they are generally meant to be over the top and tongue in cheek. This theme sounds like it could be a lot of fun if done well, and in reading the post I never once got the impression that the author believed Texans actually act like the theme described in an everyday manner…


I love this party theme... we are doing a TX Western theme for our Super Bowl party this year! Go Packers!

Lauren - I am originally from Corpus Christi, and I still have family there. It seems odd to me that you would call something that is obviously a campy theme party "hurtful". I don't think that they honestly think everyone walks around wearing foam cowboy hats. Except at the stadium of course when they root on the Dallas Cowboys :)


We certainly meant no disrespect with this blog post. We were simply giving our readers an idea for a Super Bowl Party, which happens to be taking place in Texas. We did get some of our ideas from George Bush's Black Tie and Boots Inauguration Party, where in the past they served 2500 pounds of beef, 20,000 enchiladas, 300 pounds of Velveeta and 48000 bottles of beer.


Wow. What an amazingly insulting post. So let me get this straight, you think that Texas is full of ranches, cacti and sheriffs with 24" foam cowboy hats? The DFW Metroplex leads the nation in corporate headquarters, has a population of over 6.8 million, is the largest metropolitan area in Texas, the largest in the South and the fourth-largest in the United States. The Super Bowl is not being held in Dallas, it's being held in Arlington. What exactly is Tex-Mex dip? Having been born in Dallas, I'm at a loss; I've never heard of such a thing. And I can honestly tell you that I have NEVER used a bandanna as a napkin, so, no that's NOT what we do. Such archaic stereotypical assumptions are ridiculous and just plain hurtful. You should be ashamed of yourself. And if you had any class, something we here in Texas really are BIG on, you'd delete this entire blog post immediately.
