Two twentysomethings going on a trip to Portland for the first week of September. We’ve got some tickets to MusicFest NW
, this guide to biking to microbreweries
, and a sweet AirBnB apartment in the Pearl District. I definitely want to check out Stumptown, Powell’s Books, Voodoo Donuts, and Pok Pok but I’d love to hear about some of the places/activities/neat things that people love that might not be so obvious. [more inside]

Why has there been no new youth subculture since 1998? 1960s had hippies, '70s had disco and punk, '80s had hip hop and goth, '90s had grunge. And yet kids and twenty-somthings have been wearing trucker caps and ironic sunglasses for 15 years now. What happened?

I am a student living in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I have a friend who has never been exposed to horror that is Pabst Blue Ribbon, and our morbid curiosity makes us want to track some down. Are there any bars/pubs/supermarkets that sell it? [more inside]

Help me find some tshirts from a music video. Barring that, I'm going to need a simple costume that will pass hipster muster. [more inside]

Searching "Paris" and anything to do with art is overwhelming and not helping me find what I am looking for. [more inside]

What are some websites popular with Miami hipsters?
Like the Miami equivalent of The Stranger in Seattle or The Village Voice in NYC. Has to be a website or some other online resource, though.

Usually I'm pretty "hep" to the "lingo" you kids use, but will someone tell this clueless geezer the provenance of "Oh, snap!"
? (sorry, that's it, no more inside)
