Begun the Hipster War has.

Meh, the perpetrator of this act isn't exactly a hipster, he's a middle-aged guy. He also lives in my neighborhood and, though I don't personally know him, he is infamous in the neighborhood as being an absolute flaming asshole, with a reputation for a legendary level of assholeness, who pretty much everyone around here who comes into contact with him despises. This story is pretty much par for the course with this guy.

Could someone explain step 3 to me?

1. Commit a crime
2. Document it on Facebook
3. ??????
4. Profit!

It happens a lot so there must be something to it.

ahhh, my town in the news again...

Anyone here remember True Love Coffeehouse? Awesome space, good music, cool vibe, owned by Kevin and Allison Seconds.  Kevin is from the punk band, Seven Seconds.

What happened to you, Sacramento?  You used to be cool...

I'm not a coffee drinker, so all of it is completely lost on me, but the fact is that Sacramento has quite the coffee scene and reputation for awesome coffee places these days.

The guy who's the subject of TFA who stole the sign (who, as I mentioned above, has a reputation as an utter asshole) does deserve credit for really launching the fancy-schamcy coffee thing in Sacramento, with the Naked Lounge, which he opened, I dunno, maybe 10 years ago or so. But as mentioned in TFA, a couple of the people who originally worked with him on that project branched out on their own, and became known among most coffee snobs as having better coffee with a more pleasant environment, which the original guy probably resents.  On the hipster scale, this place is not all that hipstery for a fancy coffee place. If, let's say, Starbucks is at a 5 on a 1-10 hipsterism scale, this place might be only a 6 or so.

The first of these to split off was the guy who started Old Soul Coffee. (This is the place in TFA whose sign was stolen.) People do like him as a person, and more importantly people definitely like his coffee. His first place (which still exists) was in an industrial space in an alley in midtown Sac (the alleyway south of L Street and north of Capitol, between 17th and 18th Streets) that roasted coffee and sold only coffee drinks and some very nice baked goods, and and was super low-key and definitely a word-of-mouth sort of place. They didn't even have a cash register, it was basically "just throw some money in the basket and take out your change" though that policy was wisely changed at some point. It's pretty hipstery, though (some locations more so than others).  I'd say it's around an 7.5 on the scale of hipsterism.

The next spin-off was the guy who started Temple Coffee.  This place has a cult-like following, not just in Sacramento, but now in many other places in California (I don't think they have any actual cafe locations outside of the Sacramento area and they roast all of their coffee here, but there are other fancy coffee places in other parts of the state that buy their beans and brag about selling their coffee).  They've won a ton of awards in national and international coffee competitions (Old Soul has won some too, but Temple is definitely in a league of its own). They are the worst, most over-the-top coffee snobs imaginable (imagine the worst wine snob you know who blathers about the "terrior" of the wine and "notes of leather, tobacco, and kitten taint," and transfer that to coffee, and you'll have a pretty good idea what these guys are like), but they're pretty much universally renowned for the quality of their coffee. The hipsterism is off the chart--more in some locations than others, but in general, on a hipsterism scale of 1-10, company-wide they're definitely no less than a 10. Though at some locations, the K Street midtown location in particular, the hipsterism is at about 57 on a scale of 1-10--at that location, I'm sure that there are people even from Portland or Brooklyn that have walked in and said "Whoa, now this place is too hipstery even for me to put up with!"
