How to Know if You Are a Hipster

  1. Your idea of a good weekend is taking your fixed-gear bike to hang out at a farmer’s market and art gallery downtown.
  2. You have the latest tech gadgets, but your taste in music consists of bands nobody has heard of.
  3. The weather is getting hot and your friend has a pool, so you cut off some skinny jeans and jump in, hipster style.
  4. Everyone is drinking microbrews and mojitos, so you opt for black coffee and Pabst Blue Ribbon.
