...which will of course cause all the hipsters to convulse from the meta-irony of the situation.
I'm buying popcorn.
Nov 3rd 2009 5:15PM I think Acura gets it right. Not everyone chooses a car based purely on how much horsepower it has. My TL-S has a very respectable 286 bhp, the front-wheel drive means it handles much better than the others in the wet and ice, and the pure hi-tech luxuries rival cars costing $20K more. I am one of those car shoppers who is very excited to see what Acura comes up with next, and I'll gladly wait a couple of years, since I enjoy my current ride so much!

Your move, piano manufacturers.

Both the staff and patrons are, in fact, pricks. The typical customer is as you describe... ignorant, obnoxious, and boastful. It's like a used car salesmen convention. The employees are, apparently, those who stuck around long enough without taking a hint."
Thank you very much for this observation. This has been my experience as well.
And while I respect the author's "rules", I think it makes it abundantly clear to me that a cigar lounge is nowhere that I want to be. I'll enjoy my smokes at home without all the snobbery and the hyper-inflated costs and fees, thank you very much.
