I love hipsters.

7 Mar

That’s right. I said it.

Thick rimmed glasses, a beard, maybe some suspenders. I’m not talking about your grandpa. Hipsters!

I’m not a hipster (I’m not that cool). However, I can’t help but love a place that has hipster written all over it. A local grocery store and deli selling microbrews from St. Louis? (And no, I don’t mean Budweiser).  Yes, please. A coffee-house displaying local art and showcasing local musicians on the weekends? Sounds fabulous.

And while sometimes hipster places can seem, I don’t know, snobby, the core of the establishment is probably not so bad. The hipster movement, if you want to call it that, has roots in counterculture and possesses a progressive foundation, but now, it’s as trendy as a one piece swimsuit and a pair of TOMS. I am all for local businesses, unconventional fashion trends, and some organic kale, but, I mean isn’t Miley Cyrus kind of a hipster now?

And what do hipsters have to do with writing? Well, I do spend half my days in a local coffee shop, the hipster mecca, so, I see my fair share on a regular basis. And don’t worry, I know what I’m talking about. I’ve lived in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Austin, so I know a good hipster when I see one.

Alright, I’ll admit this post might be a little weak today, but I woke up this Thursday morning with hipsters on the brain, and this is what happened.

If nothing else, can you count how many times I said hipster? Turn it into a drinking game. A blog drinking game. So hipster.

      I mean if I learned anything at UCSB, it’s that you can turn anything into a drinking game. 😉
