Fab Five Friday

We discussed it.

I defined it.

Now it's list time.

Here are the top five hipster hangouts in Baltimore.

1. Rocket to Venus, 3360 Chestnut Ave.

Hipsters are everywhere inside the Rocket. Everywhere

2. Mount Royal Tavern, 1204 W. Mount Royal Ave.

A dive bar filled with hipsters on Friday and Saturday nights. Go figure. 

3. Club Charles, 1724 N. Charles St.

To quote a frequent MS poster, Club C. is more hip than a legless man. 

4. The Ottobar, 2549 N. Howard St.

One of the city's most popular hipster clubs. Go there, and a hipster encounter is inevitable. 

5. The bar at Holy Frijoles, 908 W. 36th St.

The only place in town where you can test your music snobbishness while eating fajitas and slurping cucumber margaritas. Pomegranate margaritas are soooo last year.

Laughing Pint in Highlandtown is a pretty good hipster spot.

What's the point of this? Is this to show your dislike of these establishments and the people who frequent them?

I don't know why Max's and Brewers Art on this list.

Who cares what the point of this article is? It's a blog - he's the author.

Alf Fan - It's obvious to me the point is to tell me where hipsters go and if I were a hipster, where I would feel welcome. This would obviously be of use to new hipsters in the area, recently hipster converts and hipsters looking to re-establish themselves in the Baltimore hipster market.

Light for all, Alf Fan, light for all.

So Mum's isn't a Hipster bar? C'mon dude. you're a HUGE "I'm not a Hipster" hipster.
come out of the closet.....

i might have to come to terms with the fact that i may be... *gasp....* a hipster groupie.
