Nah. Those are the ones that get shot up in California by cops who assume some large black man is driving them.

I wonder what hipster culture has done to Nashville.  I'm friend with lots of intown hipsters here in Atlanta, but I live out in the country.  (the country has more fun)

If you think about it ,Indianapolis is pretty much like Kentucky or Tennessee . Then all those cities would be considered "in the south" .

I used to love Raleigh for it's Hipster scene. Say what you want about hipsters but they're great at revitalizing urban areas and founding good food/drink. Damn I miss Foundation's organic and locally sourced cocktails, especially the Tarheel (basically a local dark'n'stormy)

thornhill: Oklahoma City, OK

IIRC, don't they actually have a really good emerging restaurant scene? I feel like a read an article a year or so ago how lots of young people are actually moving their.


I thought about moving there a few years ago, but after talking to some people from OKC/Tulsa, they just looked at me like I had a dick on my forehead and asked "WTF would you want to move there?"  Keep looking?

mafiageek1980: Yeah, that's one of the things I like about living here in Austin. Hell, even at non-veg places I've never had an issue if I ask for a non-meat item to be left off. People are pretty nice about that around here.


I wish I could remember the name, but there was a South American style steakhouse my company went to that made me one of the best vegetarian dinners I've ever had, had the chef come out to ask if I liked it.  Every place in town was super nice about coming up with something (and usually great), especially if I tried to just order an appetizer and plan on foraging for some fast food on my own later.  I only had to do that once in a week, and the Hampton Inn employee who took me on a burrito run at 1 am should be saluted.  You guys have some sick late night vegetarian-friendly burritos as well.

Outside San Francisco, Portland, and Seattle, Austin is probably the most vegetarian-friendly place I've been.  Maybe I could include Ensenada, but they may have just been smiling and pretending to understand what I mean.  My Spanish is pretty bad.

It saves people from the pain of critical thinking by allowing them to target a malleably defined group to hate, which others also hate, but using their own definitions and with that description of hipster as "someone who does not like a thing I like" they feel empowered in their mutual dislike of those people.

Not to keep harping on Raleigh but there is some amazing vegetarian and vegan food there. The Remedy in downtown had a vegan coconut cream pie that was so good I would punch my momma for a piece.

I'm out in Chesapeake and I've been accused of being a hipster! I guess part of it is my fashion sense, vest with pocket watch, black glasses, derby hat. But mainly because of my music choices I guess. I really like Abney Park, Unwoman, Dr.Steel, The Cog is Dead, Professor Elemental. I have to tell them I'm not a hipster, I'm into steampunk...

Civil_War2_Time: davidphogan

To me (having grown up in Austin in the 70s, and coming from broke hippie parents), today's hipsters are just trying too hard to be like my folks.

It's not that they aren't doing any good in the world, because they are. They (IMO) are just trying WAY TOO hard to be flower children.

Walking, riding a bicycle, being healthy, listening to vinyl...all good things. But do you really have to spend an hour getting primed to look the part, while also bragging about your bike/beer/bar? No.


I guess the nice part of the hipsters I know is they're the type who would give you the ironic shirt off their back if you needed it.  The hippie connection makes a little more sense than what I really had noticed now that I think about it.  Of course, most of the what-I-call hipsters around here don't smell or look like they spent more than 15 minutes getting ready.  Unless they have a fresh tattoo, because you don't want to screw up some fresh ink.

detroitdoesntsuckthatbad: Not to keep harping on Raleigh but there is some amazing vegetarian and vegan food there. The Remedy in downtown had a vegan coconut cream pie that was so good I would punch my momma for a piece.


I'd love to go back, but last time I was in that part of the state was 1994 or 1995, and I don't really have any reason to go there now.

Really, nationwide, it's pretty amazing how far food has come in the past twenty years.  The chains may have made Buffalo Wings and the fast-casual burger something with very little variety, but it's kind of cool how the smaller local ones are willing to work to keep every customer happy.

I've said this once and I'll say it again.  I don't have a problem with hipsters. I live in a neighborhood in Chicago where they are everywhere. If I were twenty years younger, I might be one of them, but at age 40, I doubt they'd have me, nor I them ;).  The reason I don't have a problem with hipsters is that they unlike some of the other people in my neighborhood, they've never actually physically broken into my property (both car and home) and stolen stuff from me or tried to shoot each other within earshot of my home (and in one case succeeded in killing the other person 1/2 a block up).  So yeah, bring on the hipsters. 'Ironic' facial hair and stupid bikes are pretty small potatoes in the larger scheme of things.

Instead of my usual long rant against Hipsters, how about we name out in our state and/or country, the places we think are actually the "Least Hipster" cities? (as opposed to this list that seems to have been thwarted due to comments above that contradict the list)

For my area, Lakewood, New Jersey; can't seem to find a single hipster among the many Orthodox Jews and Hispanics when I go Judaica shopping down there. Sadly for me though I live in the town next to Asbury Park, NJ (which has my favorite pinball place, I was there today!) which is one of the "blossoming" (I just call it withering) Hipster locations where they move to and slowly take over (started around 2002 - 2003 when the Asbury Lanes was turned Rockabilly Hipster) when Brooklyn became too expensive for some of them.

Cool story bro-

Some girl at a bar asked me if I was a hipster. I asked her "Why do you think I'm a hipster?". She said it was because I was wearing a plaid shirt, and I had a long sleeve plaid coat over that. I honestly didn't even know. I just throw clothes on. I had the long sleeve plaid overcoat for 10 years, it was cold, and I just like plaid, since I was kid. She took my answer to mean that I liked plaid "before it was cool". Kinda pissed me off actually. Then I said I wear whatever the fark I want, and don't give a fark what anyone thinks of me. She said this was the typical "hipster answer".

Son of a biatch had me dug in like an Alabama tick. biatch set me up. She was trolling me. This biatch put me into a complex to the point where I can't wear plaid now because people will think I'm trying to have a "look". I'm boring. There is no "look" here. Damn Faded Glory Wal-Mart shirt did me dirty.

But really, I hope I'm not a hipster. I'm just weird. Really weird. That weirdness has been around since I was a kid.

/stop wearing those clear non-prescription glasses that have no functionality other than me wanting to punch you in the face. thanks.

TheJoe03: I'm not sure how hipsters can keep surviving in high priced cities, seems NYC and SF have priced them out (as well as working class people in general). I heard the hipsters are trying to gentrify Oakland, so it'll be interesting to see that. Thank God San Jose isn't cool enough for them to come here en masse, though  BART might change that.


San Jose isn't doing a very good job of things these days. Their plans to revitalize the Midtown neighborhood haven't gone anywhere, and the proposed Whole Foods is still an empty lot. There's no hipster bait.

The problem is that San Jose is just a little too spread out. If downtown were to become really cool, it would need a lot of development to meet the need.

See, the second I read "organic" I identify a pretentious and lame hipster. Whatever. Be glad you have something to eat, and quit making value judgments on those who don't share your insolent food snobbery.

That's around where I live, and there actually is some local hipsters that like that area. I used to live downtown in 08-09 (when I was 18-20), which was the height of the hipster craze so I was surrounded by them (and scene kids). You are right that we don't attract out of town hipsters, which I prefer.

Speaking of development, apparently they are loosening the restrictions on how tall the buildings downtown can be and are trying to build more high rise condos in the area. Going to SF makes you realize how far San Jose is to being an actual urban city, but at least they're trying.

They got 'em in San Jose, too.

CSB time:

I was down there about two years ago for a mobile conference with two other guys, one of whom was Korean, and didn't speak good English.  Great guy, though.  Anyway, we went downtown and had some dinner at a pub, started having drinks, and we got pretty deep into the bag.  Afterwards, he was outside bumming a cigarette, and I was giving him shiat about it.  "What are you, a hobo!"

Some bint in glassless frames riding a fixie (I shiat you not, FIXIE) rides by and says "You should leave that poor asian man alone!" and then proceeds to call me a corporate stooge and shiat.  Then she fixied off into the mist.   Korean dude missed all of this, but the other guy we were with about split a gut laughing at me.  I was pretty speechless, which is a rarity for me.

So you got 'em down there, dude.  They're really into asian men, apparently.
