Is Tom Menino the Coolest Mayor Ever?

So, so cool.

He hates soda and couch-dancing up in the club, but that's OK: The Herald managed to track down a slew of Bostonians willing to go on the record to crow about Mayor Menino's hip factor.

On his watch, hipsters say, young people are at more restaurants, food trucks are expanding, and a 2 a.m. last call isn't a big deal given all the other super-cool things going on around town besides drinking. Menino humbly concurs: "What’s hip? I’m as hip as San Francisco, Denver and Austin, Texas ...They’re hip cities, we’re a hip city also.” [Herald, Earlier]
