I have to ask a question that I've been afraid to ask. Is there really a nightlife in Twin Falls and if so, where is it?

This isn't a question that affects me. I have a family with many kids. I don't drink alcohol. For my entertainment, I stand in the yard and wait for the sprinkler to turn on. But, I have had many people complain to me that there is no real "nightlife" in our fair city. So, I decided to do some research and see what I could find. The results do not tell a good story.

I searched for nightlife in Twin Falls on Foursquare and Yelp. The interesting thing is the results are almost entirely restaurants. Here are the top 5 results for nightlife on Foursquare:

1. Anchor Bistro & Sports Bar

2. Elevation 486

3. O'Dunken's

4. Buffalo Wild Wings

5. Canyon Crest

Yelp's results are similar. Lots of food places.

1. Scooter's

2. Elevation 486

3. O'Dunken's

4. 3D Night Club

5. Jaker's

I'm a big fan of food, but the main complaint I hear is the lack of clubs. Maybe there exists a big Twin Falls club circuit and I'm just out-of-touch. Try not to laugh when I say that.

When I ask my co-workers what they did last night, if they went out, it was almost always to a movie.

Clue me in. Is there a nightlife in Twin Falls or should we all resume our sprinkler watch in our yards?
