What You Need To Know When You Leave The Midwest For A Big City

Congrats on escaping the Central time zone! There's just a few things you'll want to be aware of up front.

First off: You've gotta find a place to stay. Your new rent will be crazy high — three or four times what you were paying before, for a place a fraction of the size.

But hey, at least at the end of the night, you can kick back with your friends and drink a beer.

Oh, you should know: Beer is more expensive here. WAY more expensive. Your concept of "drink specials" is about to change.

Except that it's not. You’ll never see an always-empty couch like the one at Central Perk. You’ll never drink on a weekday like on “Sex and the City.”

Everything is dirty. And everyone is just as dirty.

Basically, everything is disgusting. Have you seen a puddle on the sidewalk? You do NOT want to know what's in there.

And there are always people going somewhere.

You'll also start to notice people who aren't at work on weekdays. Who are these people in line for ice cream at noon on a Tuesday? Don't they have jobs?
