Nice article, although i suppose i am of two minds.
On the one hand, it's nice to see this off-the-beaten-path city get some justified recognition, and in a paper of such caliber. I've been telling everyone who will listen, for the past three years, that this city is where it's at right now. 90% of the places the author mentioned in his piece i haven't been to, although i've certainly heard talked about. Maybe a few of those places, that Panda place and the bar that doesn't exist for example, a bit too hippsterish for me.
But yeah, the cocktails and beer culture is excellent. Now, about the coffee scene, well, good luck finding a dark roast. The general reply when i visit these so-called top-shelf coffee bar/roasters and ask about getting a dark roast is along the lines of 'why would you want a dark roast' (as though the bean is ruined at that degree of roasting). Anyway, it's hard to explain, so i don't.
On the other hand, please don't tell me that this piece in the NY Times will disturb my city's relative obscurity ;-)
Still waiting for you to visit...
