There’s a blogger in Austin you really should make it a point to read: Hipstercrite, created by the lovely and talented 20-something writer / filmmaker / fashion & design maven Lauren Modery.
She’s a New York transplant by way of LA who wised up and made the move to Austin just in time to build an enthusiastic following for her lively, entertaining blog and be named Austin’s “Blogger of the Year” at the Austin Blogger Awards in 2010. Her work has been mentioned in Texas Monthly, Mental Floss, Mashable, HuffingtonPost, Houston Chronicle, Le Temps and Le Soir. The short film she co-wrote and co-produced, Loves Her Gun, won the Louis Black Lone Star award at SXSW 2013.
Creative and resourceful, she’s exactly the kind of person we want to have make our fair, weird city home. So we urge you to read her work, hire her to write for you, support her film projects, and say howdy when you see her.
She recently named Hyde Park Bar & Grill, along with several of our long-time restaurant brethren in a list of “Austin’s Best Restaurants That Don’t Cost An Arm and a Leg.” We are pleased and flattered and wanted to return the favor, hence this tip of our hat to you, Hipstercrite. May Austin be the home that you want it to be!
