In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Somewhere between Hipster, Intentionally Ironic or Camp is a "Happy Ending," my favorite new TV show
excerpt from ABC-TV's Happy Endings, Season 1, Episode 7
Max teaches Penny how to be a hipster to make it easier for her to fit in with her new guy - a lethargic and pretentious hipster with hipster friends.
At 00:32 the adorable Elisha Cuthbert finally says something in this clip...
I sure hope that ABC gives this show enough time for the cast and writers to really come together even more and for a larger audience to find it and support it, since I personally find this show's writing to be some of the funniest and most trenchant observational humor since Gilmore Girls left the scene.
There's nobody in the cast I don't like and they all seem to have that sense of magic and timing to make it always look like it's the first time they're mouthing their lines, not the twenty-first
(But the suits at ABC -particularly the ones in affiliate relations and PR- ought to be more diligent about making sure that the show's promotional information on the Internet is consistent and doesn't mention multiple dates and time slots for the show.There's far too much conflicting information.
Don't f-up a good show with promise simply because nobody is paying attention to the details.)
And seriously, as someone named Dave, how can I possibly NOT love a show where a character named Dave was supposed to marry Elisha Cuthbert?
(I mean her character, Alex.)
Elisha Cuthbert is a smasher!
She's straight out of Stureplan via Canada if you know what I mean.
She's double-vetted for talent, charm and good looks!

New York Post video: Soap & Suds - Brooklyn, NY laundromats as "happenings"
Didn't I read in an essay in -yes- The New Yorker, many years ago, that this laundromat-cum-music hall craze originally got passe around the late '80's or so?
There are some parts of the USA -and entire states- that the fad never ever successfully migrated to.
By the way, when you do a search in The New Yorker's index, there are currently 250 entries for the word "hipster."
Here's the most recent, an essay from last November by Richard Brody in their The Front Row blog titled Hip Replacements:
