Why are hipsters so into waiting in line for brunch?

    I mostly text and make/receive calls. The Blackberry has both a touchscreen and a keyboard making texting much less of a hassle. Not much of a tech fran to be honest. Blackberries are also less prone to shattering, which is a nice plus.

    Blackberry is very retro so that puts you in hipster territory right there.

    I don't do brunch but on Saturday I do like to start my lunch at 11:30 and end it around 4 after two or three bottles of wine. Am I doing it wrong?

    Nah. No self respecting hipster would be without an iPhone.

    I didn't realize brunch was a hipster thing. I always thought it was popular because it made being drunk before noon on the weekend socially acceptable. The food always sucks, but like with most things, alcohol helps

    Way.

    I went out with someone from NY last night. Sat down at the table and she said, "what's with all the fucking people lining up for food?"

    Considering the number of places like that in NYC I have trouble believing it...

    Maybe she meant something like, "Why would anyone line up for food here? That's only worth doing in NYC."

    Places in NYC I line up for:
    Totto Ramen
    Ippudo
    Sake Bar Hagi
    Burger Joint and Shake Shack (borderline worth it)

    For brunch:
    None, other than the occasional dim sum or above mentioned ramen.

    I haven't been to Totto but I can tell that you none of those places are worth lining up for, in the scheme of things. They are all very middling representations of the food they're supposedly making.

    I've been to Totto. It wasn't worth the wait.
