Not long actually (as i get older) I've learned from having travelled some that most hot/cool spots are often in the older part of cities but usually tend to be few blocks away from the southside of any inner part of the city. The jazz clubs, artists, musicians tend to hang out and occassionally some poets lol
Never ever go to the outskirts suburbian areas thats where all the designer brand addicts go. I think truly that's the ninth circle of hell
Do you ever listen to jazz music?
