For the love of Christ what the hell is a hipster?

I mean can someone honestly say there are actual geographical areas that are designated for hipster congregation?

A hipster co-worker took a group of us to the Doug Fir after we hit Voodoo Donuts on Burnside a few years ago after a big conference/show we were required to attend at the Oregon Convention Center.

The food was good, not sure what was so awesome about the place though that she had to take us there.

Yelp hides too many reviews they think are fake or purposely trying to hurt a company, but a lot of the reviews they let you see are written by people who nitpick over the smallest detail that a business may have no control over.

Fortunately, in most of these cities they seem to have been driven almost to the sea.

Posted a positive review of a local eatery on Yelp... and they pulled it.

Eat a dick Yelp, you are useless.

of course.  As an Old Navy shopping woman over forty with a child, I am very clearly not welcome anywhere within the boundaries of Wicker Park or Logans Square in Chicago.  And by "not welcome" I mean that everything within those boundaries is catered towards the demographic of those who wear vintage clothing, have plugs in their ears (racks and racks of custom plugs) and have disposable income to spend on vegan dog leashes or whathaveyou.

I use Yelp, but primarily only as a means of finding a place to eat.  For example, if I am in the mood for Ethiopian food I can hop on Yelp and quickly find any places in my neck of the woods.  For that it is a great tool.  Now, I do pay a little attention to the reviews, but only on a broad base.  If a hundred people have all given it 1 star then that is something to pay attention to, the same as if everyone gave it a 5 star review.  Otherwise, I basically ignore most reviews of places because I do not know these people and do not know their likes and dislikes.

They also have a PBR category. I would think they overlap more than they do.

PBR is kind of mainstream cheap now, in Portland hipsters seem to be switching to Old German, Olympia, and similar cheap beers.

Did you go downstairs and and see a show?  The Doug Fir is easily one of the finest musical venues in Portland.  Other than that there's nothing really special about the place other than its decor, which I happen to be a fan of.

Sadly, no.

And getting up there, or any other venue, even down in Eugene where I live, is difficult.  I have to travel unexpectedly for work; so buying tickets that I'll actually be able to use is a crapshoot.

I take it you've not been to a major US city. At least for Philly, the map's a pretty decent representation of the hipster populations.

Or are you asking "Did someone in the government (or other position of authority) select particular regions of major cities for hipsters to congregate?" ...which would just be silly. I can't imagine the government would be willing to spend our tax dollars building giant flaming pits and then telling the hipsters to congregate within them. Not with current gas prices, at least.

I'd like Yelp to rate a place based on how long and how many hipsters will give you the stare down once you walk into the various hipster hangouts.

Nothing like walking into a coffee shop for a cup of coffee and having 18 bearded, black glasses, shiny mustache, MAC whores look up from their Instagram page to stare you down.

I have not been to Portland, Oregon in - checks calendar - shiat, 20 years. I liked Powell's.

I was in Portland, Maine, late last summer. Lots of people with beards sitting on fixies. Didn't see many ridingthem.

It was actually one of the most affordable spots I could find that wasn't in the suburbs. But it also looks pretty fun. And had good reviews.  I'm willing to indulge my inner hipster. But only briefly.

Actually, I'm only there two nights. Then head out to the McMenamins Grand Lodge for two nights for a bachelor party, which looks Eleventy Times more hipstery than even the Jupiter. I'm not sure if I'm actually looking forward to that part or not. I've never frolfed before and I've never felt the desire to frolf.

I was going to say Yelp supports economic terrorism by favoring negative reviews but your way is less hyperbolic. Yelp absolutely sucks if you have a business. I suppose they're proud of that and think all businesses are cheaters that need to be brought down. Sorry, Yelp makes me angry.

Agreed.  Close friends with a guy who runs a restaurant.  No smoking inside, and there's an outdoor courtyard where you can smoke.

Some doofus wrote a Yelp review saying she wasn't coming back until there was no smoking.  Outside.With the option to go inside and not smell a whif of smoke.

Austin stole it from San Fran. San Fran stole it from Cologne. And all of them are about 50 points behind the most boring Japanese suburb.
