Coffee Shop In San Francisco Bans ‘hipster’ conversations

The baristas who work at the San Francisco Bay Area coffee house, Four Barrel have put a ban on hipsters chatting and discussing ‘annoying hipster topics’ to prevent upsetting staff, neighbours and other customers. They have even taped down a list of rules which to abide by near the back door, for all would be hispters to take note of.  The sign by the back door where many patrons congregates, aks to refrain from littering and clamouring and now, infamously asks to “Please be respectful of our Caledonia neighbours by … not talking about annoying hipster topics, or who you [expletive] last night.

“You shouldn’t do that anyhow,” adds newly amended sign, “but our neighbors can actually hear you.” Referring to this new subsection of American counter-culutre who have invaded SF’s coffee hangouts.

Dan Fletcher, a write at Time Magazine defined a hispter in 2009 as “the friends who sneer when you cop to liking Coldplay.”

“They’re the people who wear t-shirts silk-screened with quotes from movies you’ve never heard of and the only ones in America who still think Pabst Blue Ribbon is a good beer.

“They sport cowboy hats and berets and think Kanye West stole their sunglasses. Everything about them is exactingly constructed to give off the vibe that they just don’t care.” It is these types of conversations about Kanye West stealing their sunglasses that FourBarrel are hoping to prevent with their new rule.
