I make fun of hipsters a lot even though they have never done anything to me. How could they? They usually have no upper body strength. Those full-sleeve bird tattoos really do a number on your muscles. But I still stopped downtown and joined them at the sight of the Rainier Brewery “R” tour as it stationed itself in front of hipstery bars where people play pinball machines with bright pop culture themes that were way before their time.
I joined the masses as they gathered in celebration of this historical icon, a perfect addition to all our Instagram feeds, our cameras clicking away, our iPhones constantly refreshing until we have so many likes, our hearts burst out of the plaid shirt cages and search for the next PBR happy hour that we can call home.
