The Highland Park Ebell Club


Hipster - n. A subculture of individuals in their 20's and 30's that value independent thinking, counter-culture, an appreciation of art, creativity, intelligence and witty banter. They tend to be well-educated and often have liberal arts degrees...

A new DOUBLE batch of hand-crafted, vegan, organically-sourced hipsters took the stage for La bohème 2018, the fourth incarnation of POP's trademark production!
