Hipster Ambiance on Yelp
According to this article on Geekosystem, the restaurant review site Yelp now allows a new selection in the ambiance category: hipster.
Seriously, WTF? You may be thinking that this is a good thing, but let me remind you that "hipster" is not referring to this:
"Hipster" refers to this:
"Even better!" you think. "I can filter out all the places that those douche bags frequent!" No, you can't. Filtering the hipster category isn't a possibility. Hopefully, Yelp will add this. Considering that Yelp added the category in the first place, it's doubtful that functionality will be available for a while.
While Yelp may have gone to the Dark Side, there are others fighting back against Those Who Don't Understand the Word "Ironic." Jeff Greenspan and Hunter Fine have created a hipster trap in New York City.
Who knows? Maybe Yelp is trying to find a way to contain the hipster scourge. Maybe this is a way to get all hipsters to congregate together for lunch so we can more easily dispose of them. Of course, this may backfire; hipsters may start thinking that eating is now too mainstream for them.
In that case we'd have to think of a new plan of attack. We may be able to win a war of attrition by first going after the source: Pabst Blue Ribbon breweries. The propaganda would be easy; everyone knows that Hitler liked PBR.
