I lived in Atlanta. Probably the majority of the people I saw out and about at the bars were 25-35. I've partied all over the South. New Orleans, Savannah, Nashville, Jacksonville all have 25-35 in abundance at the bars.

K good luck binge drinking hope your liver is up to the task. You seem very very angry at someone and methinks your generalizations are a bit dramatic.

Usually it's the terrain people find boring here. The nightlife is pretty happening here. The resurrection of Deep Ellum has only made it better

New Orleans and Vegas.. Vegas can be cheap living, leaving plenty of money for prostitutes and cocaine. Or prosti-dudes and heroin. Whatever floats your boat.

If your city has a large university or is a major tourist destination (e.g. French Quarter, South Beach, Vegas), then you have a critical mass of partiers every single night of the week.
Who works 80 hours a week in DC? Government employees barely put in enough hours to be considered Full Time.

I would add Boston and Philadelphia to that list. Philly, specifically, has a lot of this. One can see this in Fishtown, Northern Liberties, and Old City.

Pretty much anywhere. Maybe not so much full blown college towns but other cities such as Ocean City, MD, Miami, FL, Ft Lauderdale, FL, Key West, FL, Annapolis, MD. Hell, I'm 48 and can hang in those places with like aged people and close the bars down well after a bunch of the young bucks have long left!
