Do you ever go out alone?

My husband has been working a 2nd job at a bar downtown for the past few months. One of my coworkers also has a 2nd job at a bar downtown.. a different bar. Another coworker owns a bar downtown.. not the same bar as the previous two.. I hear a lot about the downtown nightlife. Some of it's ridiculous, like people who get so drunk they pee in a sink. Some of it's scary.. like fights and shootings, etc.. But I hear a lot. It seems everyone goes downtown.. I haven't been downtown in about 15 years.. at least not at a bar downtown. For no reason what so ever, I really wanted to go out tonight. I tried to get a friend to go out with me but she couldn't tonight. Instead we might make plans for tomorrow night. Still, the weather was warm and I really wanted to go check out the scene downtown to see what all the hype was about. But I didn't want to do it alone! Right after hubby arrived at his 2nd job he texted me that he'd forgotten a few things. I asked him if he wanted me to bring them to him, and he said yes. So I got all dressed up to hit the bars downtown.. all by myself. I didn't do much. I stopped to see hubby, went to my coworkers bar just to say hi to her, and headed home within half an hour. I walked around a bit and looked into some of the bars.. most seemed pretty dead at 11:30 on a Friday night.. I guess Saturday is really the busy night down there. Tomorrow my friend and I are going to go to the bar my coworker owns.. she just opened this bar, it's like a wine and dessert place, so I'm going to check that out. After that we'll probably just go back to my friend's house and hang out and chat.. we haven't seen each other in awhile. At least now I can say I've been downtown, even if I didn't go to drink.. just walked around a bit by myself.

I'm sure it can be quite nice as you don't have to work around someone else's plans or ideas. When I went out with my friend last Saturday I was really hoping to be able to hang out downtown for a bit longer, but she had no interest in that, so we went to hang out at her place.
There is no downtown where I live, When we were younger we would go to the next city that is big and stay over in a hotel and visit a few bars and restaurant. I haven't done that in years, If the girls wanted to do it I would be game....

@GegeTheMechanic I used to go out alone all the time when I was younger. I knew people who went out so I'd always have someone to talk to while I was there, otherwise I'd just walk around the club or bar and watch people. I always had fun though..

I could not go to a bar alone as I am just to shy. Since I was old enough to go to bars and drink I can count on one hand the amount of times I have gone in one. My boyfriend pretty much lived at the bar when we first met. I really do not enjoy them. When I drink I just do and say stupid stuff that I just kick myself over for months afterwards. I like the sounds of the bar your co-worker just opened. It sounds classier and a nice place for people to go on a date.
