How to find the hip places in any city you want

I was actually asked to find cool things in a city that I'd never been to for a trip. Well, more like I volunteered after people who lived around it came up blank. They're a little older than I and don't get out as much. Via the internet and Google maps I've found that if you want to come up with the happenin' places you should search for high concentrations of three things: coffee shops, independent bookstores, and gay bars. Secondarily, indie music stores. Once you've found what look like high concentrations of the first three, check to see how many interesting restaurants are in the area. If you find lots of them, then you've probably found one of the hip places in the town in question.
