Reader: Most so-called hipsters are amazing and here's why
A recent Denver Blogs post featured a Cafe Society reader comment railing against restaurants beloved by "hipster douchebags." The term definitely raised the hackles of many readers, both positively and negatively. Here's one take that decries the pejorative use of this particular H-word.

I am sorry, but what exactly IS a hipster? Anyone know or are we just lumping in a bunch of people under that moniker? Most of the people that I know that are called "hipsters" are the ones that are starting amazing businesses, creating beautiful art and opening great coffee houses and restaurants. They are some of the people that are making Denver a wonderful and exciting place to be. Don't judge a book by its cover and enough with all this hipster shit.
