Somerville as America's Hippest City; More!

SOMERVILLE—Author Carrie Russell throws down the gauntlet, declaring the city the hippest in the union: "Residents of Somerville spend more time in independent coffee shops than residents of any other city. Surprised, Seattle?* Residents of Somerville own more bespoke bicycles (and unicycles) than even the good people of Denver. And, sorry L.A. They know more about film, too. Residents of Somerville are most likely to accurately predict Oscar winners for every category from Best Picture to Sound Mixing." [h/t Hub]
