I have never heard of any religious people in the south trying to ban alcohol and I'm not sure how they would know if a person has been drinking and engaged in 'hedonism'.

There are bars and strip clubs all over the south.

If they did know, what legal power do they have to punish you for it.

Most of the opposition to drinking is based on fact drunk drivers kill a lot of people every year. It has nothing to do with religion or being goody goody.

If this is a way of thinking please give me the singles in the cheapest cities you can find so I can dispense with the pretentiousness. I'll take down to earth over the veneer of sophistication every time.

Not tough to figure out, simply look at where the Millenial population already is or is moving to.

Already covered by this topic here: US Cities with a really high millennial population?

Any chance someone can have a full time 9 to 5 and work at a bar on the side?

Clear indication the poster is right out of college. Such a skewed view of the US. FYI, Nashville has been labeled the Bachelorette capital of the US for years.

ClemVegas gave some good advice, go south. Oh, and travel more to learn what they didn't teach you in college.

Anything is possible, but I'd think this would be pretty rough to pull off on long term basis based on how late some bars close. Of course you might find some place that only wants a part time bartender during busy weekend hours that meshes perfectly with your 9-5 gig.

NYC is probably the best city for 20 year olds looking to have a good time while also starting their career.
