Having grown up in Post Falls (and my wife gowing up in CDA) we often talk about just how much the area has changed.
We are in Moscow now which is interesting itself with the cross section of student's, university folks, hippies (though hipsters seem to be missing?), fundamentalists, and conservatives (not the merica f yeah variety).
Hanging out in CDA this weekend and hit a new hipsterish joint called Cosmic Cowboy last night. The intersection of american flag tshirts and skinny jeans was on full display. Flag folks clearly not happy that the place is much more cosmic than cowboy (vegan options, non gmo, pick your protein type of place).
Interesting little corner of earth this area has become. Cant decide if I like it anymore or not.
Anyhow for your next hipster joint beer try Cosmic Cowboy. So hipster that they have the balls to charge $6.50 for a 9oz poorly poured ipa in a 12oz glass.
Yah, CdA/PF has kind of developed an urban/hipster vibe in recent years. I see guys walking around in skinny jeans, lumberjack shirt and beard, grommets in their ears, and man buns. They would have been laughed out of town and put on a bus back to Portland a decade ago.
If this keeps up, I might have to escape to Priest Lake for my retirement years... ;-)

Message me the next time you're in CdA and I'll buy you a beer at one of our spiffy new hipster hangouts.
