@crashFbaby Denton is neither little austin nor Portland. It is simply another hipster cesspool surrounded by suburbs and hicks.

Denton is known as “Little Austin.” It is the birthplace of the Rocky Horror Picture Show and therefore respectably weird itself.

Denton has been tagged little Austin, weird, artsy and home to UNT. Lots of bars and independent boutique shops and lots of fun.

Denton County needs to call in all their loans to Dallas County. And they damn sure better not make any new ones. City of Denton may be trying to be little Austin, Denton County’s in Texas not in California.

Other terrible city nicknames include Arlington’s “The American Dream City,” Gainesville’s “The Front Porch of Texas,” Denton’s “Little Austin” (a name that sounds like if Verne Troyer played Austin Powers’ Mini-Me instead of Dr. Evil’s) and the Hurst-Euless-Bedford tri-city area’s nickname of “HEB.” (We don’t need two entities named “HEB” in Texas.)
