Hipster Bingo in NYC

Welcome to the land of the young, wealthy, and....disaffected? I have been in NYC nary 48 hours and have heard a wealth of priceless hipster quotes so far. A few of the exchanges:

Hipster in Tight Pants: Check out my scarf
Hipster with big Dior sunglasses at night: I was gonna say, that is a real hostile scarf. I love it.
Hipster in Tight Pants: Hell yeah. Hostile!

Amy to hostess: Excuse me, you've sat a bunch of parties who came in after us.
Disaffected hostess in $600 shoes: Ugggh! I dunno, I like, called some of the names on the list, and then we sat some of the new people. (Confused look) What did you want?
Amy: But we're standing right next to the hostess stand.
Disaffected hostess in $600 shoes: Well like I'm sorry if I didn't call YOUR PARTICULAR NAME, what the hell do you want me to do?
Amy: How the names on the list.
Disaffected hostess: (stares....thinks.....rolls eyes, walks off).

Honestly that's all I can think of for the moment. Family times have been pretty friggin hilarious, but not bad at all - wish my brothers were here. Brother A has his hands full of 2 sets of parents down in VA, while Brother T is waiting to clear customs on his ship out of New Orleans....he heads for El Salvador and then Guatemala. Here is the huge ass ship he is on:

Back to family fun for awhile! In the words of Rick James, "It's a Celebration, Bitches!"
