Entering my third year living in A2 I've gotten very territorial about the places I like, because it seems like they go through a rapid cycle of pleasant obscurity, actively popular spot, and overcrowded jerk magnet. That's an oversimplification, of course, and "jerk magnet" is kind of a vague term. I guess I don't like it when people are attracted to venues, businesses, or parties because they have some "underground" mystique. If you're going somewhere because it's supposed to be a hidden spot, you're making it less lame.
I myself have been guilty of popularizing one of my favorite places in A2 - but that's mostly because I wanted their business to go up so they stay in business. So I have to keep reminding myself that businesses and parties don't exist solely for my benefit - they need to make money too, and if more traffic means better business, that just keeps things going a little while longer. As businesses close around A2 that I dearly love and miss, keeping local alive is more important than keeping me happy.
In conclusion: "Hi, I go by GH, and I'm a snobby elitist."
* Of course I'm not going to tell you what bar it is, because I don't want to see you there. Sure, I want the bar to stay in good business, but I can just easily do that on my own without having it overrun by coeds with fake IDs.
