Worth checking out or should I find something else?
Event photos seem monochromatic
12709569, I've been. It's super white hipstery up in there

Worth going? Eh. There's a booth there that has a ton of vinyl. I liked digging through that.

The food is cool too.

I wouldn't say it's a must visit but it's alright. If you have the time then check it out.
12709576, Thanks. Any solid recommendations? Donuts/Allstar weekend.

(unless you come from a very popular bbq part of the country then ignore me lol)

When you are born, you cry, and the world rejoices. Live so that when you die, you rejoice, and the world cries.
You cannot hate people for their own good.
12709592, I'm from Austin, TX. I vouch for Hill Country Bbq in the NE.

12709595, Pretty much what Chanson
Posted by madwriter, Mon Jan-26-15 02:22 PM
it's could use diversity
it was cool for a one time thing
12709587, It was there that I saw the most hipsterish thing I've ever seen
Posted by KosherSam, Mon Jan-26-15 02:19 PM
there was a booth where a guy with a handlebar mustache and suspenders was writing poems on request for suggested donations.

and when I say "writing" he was actually typing them out on a manual typewriter.
12709597, I feel like I've seen this in New Orleans
Posted by MEAT, Mon Jan-26-15 02:23 PM
But creative busking is why people go there.
Any recommendations?
12710586, I see a dude like that at the Queens Plaza station occasionally
Posted by Cam, Tue Jan-27-15 01:59 PM
Except he looks like Ron Funches, and he has a little typewriter on a tv tray, and all the poems are $5...and there's always a line of people wanting one.
12709606, its like stepping into a time machine and getting out at 2005

12709611, I was there last week
Posted by Niq96st, Mon Jan-26-15 02:31 PM

Knick-knacks, lotions, soaps made by hipsters

Good desserts


Ping-pong and pool

Loud music

More hipsters

12709618, it's rare that an act interests me
Posted by teefiveten, Mon Jan-26-15 02:36 PM
its like they dont want anything really 'urban'
it's basically PS1's Warm Up. they may throw a bone to a group that may attract POCs more than usual but I feel like they try and avoid that. or think folks wouldn't come.
12709623, last week they had Unlocking the Truth
Posted by Niq96st, Mon Jan-26-15 02:41 PM
That was the most black people I saw there. Also saw loads of kids whose parents brought them to check out the band.

But the hipsterdom was so damn thick I ended up leaving before they performed.

12709625, Thanks. Are you all auctioning off lanes again this year?
Posted by MEAT, Mon Jan-26-15 02:41 PM
12709652, yeah we just got word so now i have to set it up.
Posted by teefiveten, Mon Jan-26-15 02:56 PM
we'll probably start the auction next week.
12709653, its a tourist eye level of hipsterism.
Posted by double negative, Mon Jan-26-15 02:57 PM
fuck, when do we get a new culture?
12709686, I like it
Posted by luminous, Mon Jan-26-15 03:22 PM
But I usually only go when I band I like is performing. Zoe Kravitz was there last time I went.
12710623, it's a fun date night..i enjoyed it.
