Wouldn’t feel comfortable in a Hipster bar, Avo…
They are usually very strange people that talk about some real weird shit from my experiences, don’t think that seriousness is in their vocabulary
Hey guy, went to a bar in Vegas you’d like a lot, called Nacho Daddy, downtown about a block off Fremont, not sure of the side street… lotsa Patron Anejo (the bar standard at $10 a pop), fantastic Margaritas in a mason jar, scorpion shots (had 2 myself, not all that bad, sorta chewy) and lotsa very pretty girls of all ages… my kind of place.07/30/2014 at 9:51 am #70719
old no real Ballardite feels very comfortable these days in Ballard. Seafood Fest was a snooze with bad food to boot. Oh well this too will pass.07/30/2014 at 10:01 am #70721
I’m not sure how it passes. I know neighborhoods run hot and cold in the fad world, but this place it crazy busy and there are no signs of it letting up. Every night, including Sunday and Monday, Ballard Ave. is packed with people who are clearly here for the destination. A few more years of this and Ballard will have more in common with Georgetown in Washington, D.C. than Fremont next door. And I say this as relative newbie!07/30/2014 at 10:43 am #70723
Heh. Scary that I can link most of those themes with an existing Ballard bar.07/30/2014 at 1:07 pm #70737
It always passes edog. Of course those who think they are hip never realize when they no longer are.07/30/2014 at 5:06 pm #70750

I hope you’re right. But considering the number of big, new residential buildings in Ballard, I bet it’ll predominantly be the “hipster” types who live there.
FYI, I knew people who considered themselves hip. But they never entered my circle of friends, unless they were willing to buy pizza for everyone.07/31/2014 at 7:42 am #70771
Not unless they live 5 to an apartment Lou.07/31/2014 at 8:29 am #70773
5 to an apartment = 1 to an apodment
those hipsters will be just fine.
Ballard bars may only be trendy for another five or ten years, but what happens when this passes?
the neighborhood is still an appealing place to live with decent schools, parks, etc.
do the hipster taverns morph into soccer mom salons and amazon drop-off stations?07/31/2014 at 8:50 am #70775
Eventually Ballard will be a cross between the Jetson’s and a Dr Seuss movie.I wonder if they can make delivery drones look like exotic tropical birds or dragons.07/31/2014 at 9:35 am #70777
People! Hipsters are as dead as disco! There is no clearer demise of the hipster aesthetic than those big shaggy beards. Youth culture has always aspired to “not care” but when you wear a big beard like zztop, its no affectation, you really don’t care.
Normcore is next.07/31/2014 at 9:42 am #70778
I always thought the Hipsters died when Bob Dylan discovered Christ.07/31/2014 at 12:26 pm #70796
“what happens when this passes?”
Well just go back a few years. In 1974 Ballard had an old lady dress shop, a few tired restaurants, an old lady furniture store etc. etc. etc.
The cycle never really changes.
