In my opinion, the LV Strip is the only truly happening place 24/7. You lose sense of time at night there.

I used to jog through Times Square at 3-4am and it was pretty quiet most of the time. And that's not a bad thing. NY rules the world partly because New Yorkers get shut eye when they need to. LOL

Forget NYC. New Orleans is where it's at. Where else can you walk into a CVS Pharmacy, gas station or Wal-Mart and score you some liquor at 4AM?

Anywhere......I'm assuming your being sarcastic? lol

In Houston, it's more about the city shutting down but not the people. Where I stay, people are out all night playing loud music, fighting ,smoking,etc

Funny thing is I'm totally serious. Not to mention all-night drive-thru daiquiri shops. You will never suffer for lack of booze in the N.O.

Yeah Houston's all about taking the party home. I'd imagine there are more people livin' it up at home on a typical weekend here than at the clubs or out and about.

Oh man I used to do the same thing. Those were the days haha. Now I get cranky at work if I was out for karaoke past 11 or midnight!

My most memorable was when I was 22, working in an office 9 to 5 during the day, and appearing in an off off Broadway play (chorus). We had our opening night on a Thursday night and cast party (all night aftwards). We then went to breakfast about 6 AM. I decided no point in sleeping for just 2 hours, so stayed up and when to the office, very blearly eyed, at 9 AM. Forutnately, it was the kind of office job where they "understood". I slept all day on Saturday and Sunday. Sang and danced those nights in the play. Difficult going to work on Monday morning and adjusting to the daylight hours, but when you are YOUNG you can do it.

NYC NightLife???????

lol yeah, because that's what makes a city never sleep I've never once heard New Orleans is the city that doesn't sleep. NY doesn't have that reputation for nothing.

I've had a few days in the last 2 years where I was out until 3, 4am after a concert hanging out with the bands/singers and I worked the next day.
