Yelp Says Hipsters in OC Only Exist in Santa Ana, Costa Mesa, and Barely in Fullerton

Categories: Really?!?!?

Sometime this week, those crazy Yelp kids unveiled a feature that allows you to gauge cities' neighborhoods on a map by keywords drawn from user reviews, letting you know where to go if, say, you're looking for an area heavy in cocktails or hangover cures. Since OC's is mostly cities, and distinctive neighborhoods are almost at a minimum, this feature is of limited use for us. Nevertheless, we can divine some interesting summations of where OC exists, especially in the hipster category--namely, we have next-to-none, per Yelp.

In fact, according to the feature, hipsters in Orange County exist in only two cities: Costa Mesa, and Santa Ana. The formers' main two gathering areas, per Yelp, are in the 405-55-73 Triangle (home to a certain complex whose owner doesn't like us) and around the SOCO Collection. In SanTana, unsurprisingly, hipsters congregate around its downtown, home to many fine restaurants.

The only other city that barely registers on the hipster list is downtown Fullerton--but only the slightest shade. Have fun with the feature here--just remember to scroll south from Los Angeles, and enjoy!

Actually, Costa  Mesa demographics  has more 20's somethings and less kids under 10 which is a sign that hipsters are more popular in Costa Mesa than Santa Ana. Maybe in 10 years  Santa Ana will be transform by the Hipsters and kids under 10 will be cut in half and more 20's and 30 somethings. Hope this happens in parts of Anaheim as well.

Something about hipsters in Santa Ana makes me laugh my ass off. Lotsa hipsters around First St and the 5 freeway!

Would that be Hooters?

Costa Mesa where there are no job openings and job growth is at a standstill but they hold 60th birthday bashes in front of the police department including fireworks and country music goatropers..

We don't have a media blackout on Costa Mesa—just last week, we reviewed Pie-Not, and devoted a big ol' cover to Portola Coffee. Care to try again?

I was going to mention Costa Mesa, specifically the area "you shall not name" south on Bristol,...then I read the article and realized Costa Mesa has a media blackout from the Weekly.....too funny.
