Oh, I hate those hipsters so much. I see them all the time at Applebee's talking on their cell phones and eating their Xtreme Fajitas. They think they're so cool with their legal jobs and their late model Japanese cars. Why don't they just go back to their exurban townhomes and leave us simple folk alone?

As someone who works in the hospitality business in New York's West Village, I have seen many, many Yelp restaurant reviews focusing on how good looking the people eating there are - and this being a major reason to want to eat/drink somewhere.

I'd complain about this neighborhood becoming an area filled with snobby, trust fund southern and square state transplants, but I'm making too much money off of it.

I always thought the meaning implies "you spend lots of money to look like you're broke."

Unless they're "blipsters" which are black people that don't look like gang members.

I'm of the mind way too many people overuse the word hipster to describe anything they don't like. But there are those places where if you don't dress or act like them, it can be an unpleasant experience.

Take the Turf Club in Saint Paul. It was actually a great joint to catch local music. It also had the main floor bar and a basement bar if you wanted to take a break from the band. The last few times I've been there it was populated with people sipping on PBR tallboys in skinny jeans with something ironic to peacock themselves with. The last time I was there the staff seemed irritated that I was there trying to get a beer when I wasn't dressed like everyone else. Haven't been back since.

I DRTFA but I think that could be a good idea. When recommending places to go to people who are relatively new to my city, I will often tell them the kind of atmosphere to expect. If recommending an area that is up-and-coming or gentrified, it doesn't always mean "hipster", but I think there's a 50/50 chance with that.

Then again, for a review site, this might kill business. I mean, who wants to hang around with hipsters? Everyone hates hipsters, even hipsters themselves.

So you're saying it used to be cool back in the day when you went there. Before all these hipsters showed up.

It also allows them to charge more for food, kinda like how adding "bistro" at the end of the name for a restaurant works.

I just realized that my retro looking glasses probably make people think I'm some sort of hipster. Got dammit so much. I'm fecking blind.

My gripe with Yelp is that people can really rip a place apart before it's even gotten off the ground. A friend's restaraunt was panned by some doofus my friends let in for the opening party. The feckstick was writing stuff like "the staff seemed totally unprepared and the menu was incomplete" Dickwad gets let in for a free nosh and brewski and rips on a place that is in the middle of celebrating its own got damn freaking OPENING with a GOT DAMN PARTY.

It peeved me a bit that.

Sure. When the people trying to make money from you treat you like an asshole because you wanted a drink, it's time to move on.

Back in the day, I wasn't growled at for ordering a beer.

I'm okay with this. If I look up a bar, I kind of want to know what sort of clientele they serve. This is no different from designating a place as a gay bar.

That said, if you walk into Comet Ping Pong and don't understand what the presence of plaid shirts, PBR, and free ping pong means, you're too stupid to use the internet in the first place.

Holy shiat. It's filled with people enjoying stereotypical hipster pasttimes that don't look like hipsters.

Maybe they treat normal people badly because they're used to catching so much shiat for being hipsters. The only people who won't treat them badly based on their appearance are other hipsters.

yeah i didn't realize that i dodged the hipster bullet by having too many gears. or something. someone pointed that out and i was slightly relieved.

the messenger bag is leather and looks pretty professional.

My heart bleeds. But driving business away isn't any way to keep a bar open. If these people want to belong to a clique so bad, they can go back to high school. Plenty of intolerance there for people different than themselves.

It's just like punk or hardcore or any other niche youth identity.

"We're all individuals, man, it's cool, no conformist shiat with us...hey that guy isn't dressed like us, he sucks."

Anyhow, I was a hipster before it was cool.

Skinny black jeans? I wear them, which pretty much makes them uncool per definition.
 
2011-03-22 03:57:41 PM  
Basic hipster look (for men... girls are more complicated) = extremely tight jeans, plaid shirt, v-neck under shirt, beard, ray ban sunglasses, designer shoes, fixy

Since that is the most basic, you can add variations like mustaches and sweat bands.

But dude, they make the drip coffee right in front of your eyes with these tiny filters, and all the drinks are made with small-batch local organic spirits, it's like supreme flavor *drags on an American Spirit.*

As long as it's the hipster chicks rockin' the skinny jeans, I'm cool with it. Some of the jeans they wear are so tight I can see the date on the dime in their pocketses. And if I'm really lucky, I can tell if they are hardwood or carpet.
 
2011-03-22 03:59:37 PM  
I'm not sure how to feel about this. On the one hand, it might be helpful to avoid certain places that are filled with ironically attired slaves to a fashion that makes the eighties look like a golden age of clothing design. On the other hand, if a place I actually like gets designated "hipster", its going to draw them there like some... kind of hipster hive.

Just about every one of my favorite restaurants in town is probably deserving of the hipster tag. They just happen to have the best moderately priced food...

The restaurant scene in milwaukee is kinda weird.

Keep an eye out for how many younger people (looking 20-30) people are smoking outside on the sidewalk. if the number increases...
