Why People Hated Me on Yelp

Yelp review from April of 2008 

Probably one of my finer moments, no wonder people hated me on Yelp! 

Review for Crust restaurant in Wicker Park (now closed) 

Hey Wicker Park "hipsters" listen up!  

Wicker Park is not cool anymore so stop giving the hairy eyeball to people you consider yuppies when they come walking into a restaurant where you happen to work. Stop trying to keep the dream alive. Nobody has been shot in Wicker Park since the early 90s and the housing crisis hasn't even touched that neighborhood. 

When you live next door to a 1.1 million dollar house and 2/3 of your neighbors drive a Range Rover, it is over! Gentrification has won. You can pierce your body parts as many times as you want, and with bigger and bigger holes, and guess what hipster? Wicker Park will still be the land of those ridiculously over priced baby strollers pushed by the "renaissance mom" whose investment banker husband earns in one month well over what you earn all year.  

That angry statement is directed at the staff at Crust and every other pseudo-cool, wanna-be restaurant in Wicker Park.  
I had lunch at Crust last Sunday afternoon and the food was OK at best. The arugula salad was a bunch of arugula on a plate. The pizza was fair. The Margarita pizza was the best out of everything that everyone had so don't bother with the numerous toppings.  

That's it, nothing more to say simply because it is that boring.  It is an OK room that serves OK pizza.
