Reader: I think Westword has to abandon the word "hipster"

Comida was the first occupant to open in The Source.
Should Westword resolve to lock up the term "hipster" in our grandma's hope chest in 2014? We just reposted on Facebook our list of the ten best hipster restaurants in Denver , and the concept has gone from hip to hip replacements in just five weeks.

Says Elka:

So, everything that opened in the last five to ten years translates as "hipster." Hmm. Okay, well, I'm 40, no one in the wildest dreams would even begin to call me a hipster, and I like many of these places. I think Westword has to abandon the word "hipster." Your usage is deeply annoying.

AmandaBW takes it further:
Says It's cute that Westword is hiring interns from Ohio to write pieces about what's "cool" in Denver, but seriously, can we try being a little more contemporary? These places were "hip" five years ago, as was the term "hipster," but now this just shows how painfully out of touch this publication has become. Get it together, Westword. You are about as relevant as an episode of Golden Girls.
If "hipster" is five years out of date as a term, what has replaced it? And what have replaced these places as the most trendy in town?

As long as their are grown men wearing a full beard and a spider man t-shirt, we need the word hipster.

As long as their are bartenders who wax their mustache and dress like a 1930's Busker, we need the word hipster.

As long as there is someone to utter the phrase "sweet fixie bro", then we need the term hipster.

As long as there are people who can't afford their rent but can afford to spend $5 for a cup of organic, fair trade coffee, then we need the word hipster

As long there are people who consider The Source a worthy find dining destination, then we need the term hipster.

As long as the kitchen staff at Old Major looks like extras from the Sons of Anarchy, then we need the term hipster.

Agreed, Westword and most of the rest of the internet need to give it a rest.

Since Wasteword has already abandoned any semblance of journalistic accuracy or integrity ... just add "hipster" to the pile.
