1. Look the part.
Embrace the stereotype and throw on a cowboy hat, boots, and bolo tie. If you’re feeling ambitious, you can even don a holster and spurs. Not many Texans go around wearing this on a daily basis, but we do have quite a few shirts and hats with the Texas flag on them.
2. Ignore Mexican food anywhere else.
Bowling for Soup said it best – “The Mexican food sucks north of here anyway”- and it’s true: no place in the US outside of California and possibly NYC can compete with the tacos and burritos of the Lone Star State. If you think you’ve had good Mexican food in South Dakota, I’d love to see your reaction once you sample the real thing.
