Rapmaster2000: After visiting this hotbed of cool, I can attest that it's every bit as entertaining as San Diego's savagely dullor Baltimore's prosaic Inner Harbor.Dude, your problem is that you went to the mall and were shocked when it was just like every other mall. This is because you're not cool.
ChrisDe: Beer snob thread!
Lucky LaRue: Art.. artisan burritos? Is that like a pink taco?
dc0012c: I'll take insufferable hipsterism anyday if it means that we don't go back to the days when Becks and Bass were high-end imports and the only place that made hamburgers with fresh beef was your house. F*ck whether it's "cool" or not, the US dining and drinking scene has improved in leaps and bounds in the last 20 years as towns of all sizes try to emulate the quality and diversity of places known for it. Get over the "hipster" vibe and enjoy a good IPA and an avocado mushroom burger.

Citrate1007: The author is more insufferable than any hipster I've ever met.
oldfarthenry: Look everyone! It's another "hatester" vs "hipster" article (aka battle of the neck-beards).
dc0012c: I'll take insufferable hipsterism anyday if it means that we don't go back to the days when Becks and Bass were high-end imports...
cgraves67: I'll still take variety over conformity even if it means that some of the variety is subpar.
Lumpmoose: As in all It Cities, Portland's status is codified by its need for recognition from outsiders, embellished by how effectively it commercializes that attention, and sustained by the intensity of its need to prove that you don't have to live in New York or L.A. to be surrounded by awesome musicians, world-class theater, and pretentious Sazerac culture.Except that you sort of do.Ah, there's the punchline: "Everywhere except NYC and LA suck." He sounds miserable so hopefully he'll just stay home next time.
