I was at Sanctuary, considered an "upscale" club by the twentysomethings in Boston, this Saturday night. Because I hate places that are considered "upscale" by twentysomethings with no style, I deliberately went as downtown as I could - t-shirt over t-shirt, military jacket, jeans, and some pretty cool kicks, if I say so myself. They nearly didn't let us in, but after a small lecture on limited edition sneakers, decided to let us "slack". Anyway, within 2 minutes, I knew that I was there purely for the entertainment value of Boston trying to be upscale NYC. Never have I seen so many versions of the lame-guy uniform of the untucked striped shirt (usually blue) and relaxed fit jeans with some sort of ugly black dress/casual shoe. The girls were nearly all dressed in some type of tank top with low slung jeans and strappy heels. Seriously, I have never seen such a sea of boring people in my life. Give me the most contrived "hipster" bar in NYC or LA (and these can be *very* pretentious) anytime. At least people there try not to look like absolute clones.
