Reader: Without you ignorant peons it wouldn't be cool to be hip
Inside Green Russell, one of our top ten hipsters bars.
Last week we poured out our list of the ten best hipster bars in Denver. If you're a cultural anthropologist looking to observe hipsters in their element or maybe you're just new to town and looking for a hand-built bar within fixie-riding distance where you'll feel at home, these are all great hipster hives for a drink, maybe some banjo music...and composing responses to all the comments that have been posted about that list.
Absolutely embarrassed to say I've been to 9 of 10 of these.
Thanks, now I know which bars to avoid when I'm in Denver next month !!
And finally, there's this from Mike:
I'm actually glad that people hate on this scene. The same kind of people that have always hated on anything that isn't tame and packaged and easy to listen to while being endorsed by the radio and your friends on the football team.. and without you ignorant peons it wouldn't be cool to be hip. So keep listening to boring music, meeting all your fancy friends for "cocks and apps" at Linger and Lola, hanging out in Wash Park on the weekends with all your frat buddies. We will continue not giving a fuck.
