Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

An abundance of cruisers -- which Josiah Hesse derides in his "Cruiser bikes sucks" post -- aren't the only sign that this town has been overtaken by hipsters.

There are also all the flip flops.

Says Peter:

What pisses me off is those people that wear flip flops. You don't ever hear them say "let's go for a walk". Trust me, bro, I have an awd and go to the grocery store when it's snowing and I've never seen any flip flop wearers then.

What are the other worrisome signs that this town has become a hipster haven? Post them below, or join the conversation already under way on the cruisers post.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
