Five bad things about Tacoma being rated a top city on the US Hipster Index.
1 Seattle didn’t make Top 10 list, so now even more of its young pretentious urban bohemians will move down here.
2 Obsessive hipster thrift store shopping results in a local plaid flannel deficit and less cheap stuff for poor Tacomans who really need it.
3 Vancouver, Wash., was rated No. 1, Salt Lake City No. 2 and Spokane a slot behind us at No. 7. So this list must be a sarcastic hipster in-joke.
4 If Tacoma is overrun by 20-something hipsters, there won’t be enough responsible older people left with basements for them to live in (and brew skanky beer).
5 Turns out the list had a typo. Tacoma is actually the sixth-best city for hicksters. (Attracted by Garth Brooks concerts, monster truck rallies, etc.)
