You Know You're From Fort Lauderdale When...

Fort Lauderdale isn't only a tourist town. Sure, we've got the beach and frozen-drink bars, but this city has always been packed full of locals-only spots. Maybe you have fond memories of dancing the night away at the Squeeze. Or you remember shopping for records where a Hustler store now resides. To show off our Fort Lauderdale pride, we've compiled a list only a true local would appreciate. Feel free to add your own below.

To start things off, you know you're from Fort Lauderdale when...

9. You've enjoyed several drunken meals at the Peter Pan diner.

8. The idea of traveling west of 95 seems ridiculous.

6. You know what a rum barrel is, and regret it. 

5. The bartenders at the Poorhouse know your drink.
