Lame article. Bashing hipsters is so 10 years ago. Take it from a middle-aged Denverite that remembers the Denver where "after hours" partying usually involved the White Spot on South Broadway: things are much, MUCH better now. We've gone from a city that young people generally couldn't wait to leave to one that people are dying to come to. Sure, I long for the days of an uncluttered I-70 in the 1980's just like everyone else, but whatever: I'm sure Haight-Asbury was great in 1967 when Jefferson Airplane were still an underground band and blah blah blah... personally, I *LOVE* the fact that I can walk down by 14th and Pearl now and not be offered crack or worry about being robbed. If you're really that desperate for urban "flavor" (so that you tell the obligatory hipster-homestead stories) you can always move to Aurora.
