Love ‘em or hate ‘em hipsters are here to stay. All you have to do is walk by Dolores Park on a passably warm day to see the hordes of unkempt, skinny-jean wearing hipsters lounging around in packs with their their track bikes and cases of PBR, taunting you with their indolence as you trudge to your office cubicle for work.
What exactly is a hipster? Are they defined by where they live in the city (Mission, Lower Haight, the ‘Loin)? By how they dress and look (skin-tight jeans, thrift store finds, dirty, greasy hair)? Or their behavior (smoking, drinking PBR, hanging out in the middle of the day in Dolores Park, riding fixies)? All of the above?
