Does waiting in an hour line at Voodoo Doughnuts make you a pathetic hipster?

Denver blog posts like the voodoo you do so well.

At our Cafe Society blog, Patricia Calhoun shares the take of a reader who wonders who the hell would wait for an hour to order at Voodoo Doughnuts.

What's with trying to categorize everyone in every single article? I'm guessing the people that are waiting an hour in line at Voodoo are people that like doughnuts.

I Dono, I drove to Denver from Longmont and then Waited in line. Honestly it was fun and worth the wait and some what high price. They are fun and pretty amazing too. Call me what you like, but I found it a fun way to spend the day with friends and family.

Hmmm, didn't we already hear that one, or something like it from you already Daniel? You need new material. We have sonething called free will in this country, and if people want to eat doughnuts so be it. If people wanna eat greasy ass cheese burgers let it be. Who the hell cares?

and if you are commenting about people waiting in a fucking line, and how it bothers you so much that a business is clearly doing well, then maybe you are the one who needs a hobby?

If you are waiting in line for a hour or more, you need a hobby and a reality check. It's a fucking donut.

You should get out a little more, and maybe read a bit more if you think Westword is the "most liberal news outlet you know of". See I can use quotations too. This is my opinion, and not just my opinion alone, and last I checked we can still have differing opinions. Westword is alot more confrontational with their stories as well, which I don't like either. Seems the writers all too often will write a paragraph, or 2, and use somebodies stupid facebook posts to talk shit about whatever it is they don't like. In the case of this story it's Hipsters(again), and VooDoo Doughnuts(again). Idk why they have it out for VooDoo Doughnuts, maybe they wouldn't buy ad space? Lol. Westword gets alot use lining the cages of my own, and my friends bird cages, and pet kennels these days, and that is fact.

Best comment ever is above! West word is a "piece of shit right wing rag"? If this paper is what you consider right wing, You must be the most one sided liberal ever! This paper is damn near the most left wing news outlet I know of.

I'm a hipster now? Who knew becoming one was so easy? I thought at minimum I would need some new clothes and a tattoo.

says cardboard cowboy. Westword has turned into no more than a piece of shit right wing rag. They are alienating the people who read this magazine for years, and now would rather pander to idiots like cardboard cowboy. I think people should just give up on westword. stop reading. These days I mainly use the copies of Westword I pick up to line my birdcage so it can shit all over it. That is all they are good for.

Fuck no, if you were to buy a plane ticket to Portland, just I wait in line for a Voodoo Donut, then you'd be a hipster. On top of that I almost garuntwe 60% of people waiting in line are tourists that don't get to have the wonderful donuts in their city.

I dunno, folks. I lived in Portland for seven years, and the lines for Voodoo never go away. Nor does the novelty of a donut shaped like a dick. Also, they're pretty fucking delicious.

Fad, Fad, Fad. I remember when Krispy Kreme Doughnuts came to town.....same result....long lines for these things. 4 yrs later, they are all pretty much closed down.

People can do whatever they want to with their time. This is just another excuse to push that frigging donut shops name out one more time. Do you guys spend hours a day thinking of new stories for this donut shop? Christ move on already.

Who cares! If someone wants to wait in line to buy donuts, that's their right as a consumer. Why drag egotistical judgement into it? Who gives a shit if you are given the "label" of hipster. No one cares about labels. Unless they are the person doling them out. In which case, who cares about that person's opinion. If I could eat donuts I would go wait in line - those donuts look delicious. When I was 12 and a new chipotle opened by my house after warped tour I went with two friends and waited over an hour for free burritos. Was I a hipster? No I was a broke ass 12 year old who likes chipotle. What's the damn difference? Who cares? Denver Westword, can't you find something more worthwhile to write about?

Westword, I'm a longtime reader of your paper (and I prefer the paper to the Internet), and I am pretty sure I'm not a hipster, but I'm starting to get tired of the constant harping on hipsters (I am not even sure what one is anymore and don't really care). I have not tried the doughnuts; I might sometime in the future, but if I choose to spend my time waiting in line (if there is a line at that point), who cares? How is this any different than waiting for a spot at a restaurant, or waiting for a particular store to open? Unless the line of people waiting is a) blocking the street where you're trying to drive b) blocking the sidewalk where you're trying to walk c) causing some kind of noise, danger, or disturbance near your home, why does anyone care about how anyone else spends their free time? There are other things going on in Colorado besides doughnuts and pot; I look forward to your writing about more interesting things ;)

Disagree! I am so far from a hipster and I've gone to voodoo twice. They're great doughnuts from a fun company! Judge away, opinionated bitches.

Curious question? Is there someone who would actually do that? Surely not anybody smart enough to be in Denver

And what is this fascination with trying to label everything hipster, or not? Get over it. People don't need a label to be dumb.

None of these asshats commenting have even eaten them. People waited in longer lines for the 24 hr DD and their donuts and coffee suck. So what does that make them?

NOT gonna lie here, the comments on this post are WONDERFUL! Denver Westword should make a soap opera based on them! I love DENVER!

I heard they are that good. But I'll be damned if I wait in line to find out.

I will only say that I have much better things to do with my time than stand in line for donuts. The novelty will wear off soon enough.

Mo Nd Oh... that's the reason the line is so long...they all have the munchies!!! PS...Voodoo Donuts are not that good..unless of course you just did a dab???

To each their own. Personally I'd never wait in line that long for a doughnut (in that amount of time I could have just made them myself at home! lol), but why do people gotta be so judgey all the time? Don't worry so much about what other people spend their time doing and worry about leaving the world a better place. That would be a far better use of their time in my opinion! :-P

yes. a couple weeks back I was driving down Colfax on a beautiful Saturday afternoon & saw a line so long I thought it must be for something awesome,then I saw the sign. a long ass line for some funkin donuts & the faces I made eye contact with looked back at me like,yeah,I've got way too much free time on my hands but I'm about to score some donuts & the people surrounding the area who did were holding their boxes up like some kind of trophy. give me a break.
