D Magazine has a really cool new article up at their website called "Your Perfect Day." The D Magazine has taken several Dallas "archetypes" like "The Sports Fan," "The Shopper," and "The Music Lover" and they designed "perfect days" to match the interests represented by each archetype. One of the archetypes is "The Hipster," and it's no surprise that The Amsterdam Bar plays a very important part in the Hipster's perfect day:
The HipsterThere you have it folks: at the end of the day, the cool kids all head for The Amsterdam Bar.
You eat local. You shop vintage. And you went green before green was cool.
Earth Day is Tuesday, April 22. Do your part and pick up trash around White Rock Lake, during the Saturday Shoreline Spruce-Up.
