A citywide celebration that has been 53 years in the making is unfolding throughout San Francisco and across Northern California Monday night on the heels of a spectacular World Series Championship by the San Francisco Giants ball club.

Giants fans celebrated the win every way possible: at bars, in living rooms, at watch parties and in front of AT&T Park. Crowds flooded San Francisco streets to dance on top of MUNI buses and along with complete strangers after the game ended.

If you’re from Seattle, Portland, New York, Boston, or San Francisco, odds run high that you’ve heard the term ‘hipster’ used in street vernacular.

Not to be a killjoy, but I couldn’t seem to figure out what the definition of a “hipster” really is.
