contrary to what everyone thinks, frisco is not just a nickname for san francisco that only tourists use. frisco is a small mountain town in western colorado that is in close proximity to lots of the awesome ski resorts like keystone (right down the road), breckenridge, copper, and vail. all of which i love.

The proper term to use for "San Francisco" when you want to annoy uptight "Friscans".
Me: I'm going to a club in Frisco tonight.
Uptight Friscan: Frisco? Nobody from here calls it that! Please use San Francisco
Me: Yah, I love living in Frisco.
Uptight Friscan: Please don't disrespect the city by using that term.
Me: Wow, Frisco sure has great night life - and a lot of anal retentive idiots

How people who arent from Sanfrancisco say Sanfrancisco
" hella... frisco rocks!"
by herbie January 25, 2004
improper way to abbreviate San Francisco and a sure way to let someone know you aren't from there or spent any real time there.
2 fugitives hiding out under a bridge in The City got caught by police when asked where are they from and one responded "Frisco". The cop stated that "no one in The City calls it Frisco".

An abominable way to refer to the city of San Francisco. It disrespects the entire city and should not be uttered by anyone, as by decree of Emperor Norton I.
Whoever after due and proper warning shall be heard to utter the abominable word "Frisco", which has no linguistic or other warrant, shall be deemed guilty of a High Misdemeanor, and shall pay into the Imperial Treasury as penalty the sum of twenty-five dollars.

Fuck you, I call it Frisco. San Francisco born and bred, Western Edition and Mission District. Anyone who says its disrespectful for the city is just trying to be condescending to the person that used the word.

REAL SAN FRANCISCANS CALL IT FRISCO
Real San Franciscan: "Man, Frisco is hella tight."
Fake San Franciscan: "Frisco? you must not be from here you retard. Nobody from San Francisco calls it Frisco."

Every other real San Franciscan in the area then beats the fake guy down.

Frisco is a name that was used by people living outside of San Francisco, they chose to use it as a shorter way of saying San Francisco. Today people in Rap, or those that families did not originate from San Francisco call it "Frisco".

Most of today's residents of San Francisco are not true San Franciscan's but claim San Francisco not truly knowing the history or having any real legitimate ties to San Francisco.

Sco was a nickname given by rappers to San Francisco.
" i'm headed out tonite"
"where too?"
"Frisco, they got plenty of freaks"

A city in Texas right outside of Dallas. Big houses and a lovely mall. Five star school district and amazing library. Go anywhere else and say you're from "Frisco" be sure to clarify that you meant Frisco, Texas. Not the ghetto slang for San Francisco.
Bob of LA California: where you from, bro?
You: Frisco.
Bob of LA California: *bitch slaps* how dare you disrespect the city like that!
You: -_- i meant Frisco, Texas, bro.
