Reader: Girls in skin-tight minis have invaded Highland!

The view from the rooftop bar at Linger.
For days the discussion has focused on Cherry Creek North, once this town's hottest restaurant neighborhood, which may -- or may not -- be making a comeback. But this morning we're returning to Highland, the area that Forbes just declared one of "America's Hippest Hipster Neighborhoods," citing many of the restaurants in the area, including Linger. And it's about to get another one: Jezebel's.

But Denver Dave has his doubts about a Southern place working in Highland:


I may be wrong about this but I don't think LoHi (the land of size zero girls and skinny jeans) may not be the ideal location of Southern comfort food. Skin tight minis and fried chicken and BBQ??

Responds thespot84:

If by skin-tight minis you mean the stuff the plethora (in the worst sense) of babies (in the progenitive sense) in the neighborhood are dressed in, then ya. Sure. By the way... when was the last time that you were in Lower Highland?

Girls in skin-tight minis might make their way to the neighborhood to check out all our of new, cool and hip, restaurants; however I can guarantee you the people who actual live here are anything but. Oh and we (at least I) fucking love fried chicken.

LoHi may be hip, but is it full of hipsters? Post your thoughts below.

HOLY SHIT IT'S A GUY ON A BIKE BUT HE'S NOT INVOLVED IN A BIKE RACE! CALL THE HIPSTER POLICE!!!

 

Someone please adequately define hipster for us and then we can actual begin to figure out where 'they' are.  From the Forbes article:

 

"Merriam-Webster somewhat vaguely defines a “hipster” as “a person who is unusually aware of and interested in new and unconventional patterns.”"

 

So based on this, a hipster is anyone in Denver who doesn't like texmex.

 

If anyone actually read the forbes article, Forbes judged 'hipness' based on coffee shops, locally owned businesses, farmers markets, and walkability. Beyond those metrics, to put Lower Highland and Williamsburg or Sliver Lake (and let's be real, Silver Lake is so yesterday, it's all about Echo Park now) in the same article is complete poppycock.

 

If hipsters are anywhere in this city, and I think they are, I'd focus more on River North, South Broadway, West City Park, and Cap Hill. The fact of the matter is that Lower Highland is simply too old, too established, and too expensive to cater to the PBR crowd.
