We have been doing some research here at Ticket Crusader on some of the best places to hit up when you are looking for something to do on a night out on the town.  Looking to get your dance on?  Want to just pay at the door of a venue and see some awesome band that you might not have heard before, but you dig the genre?  Or just want out a new place altogether?  Then this list is for you!  We tried to keep this as unbiased as possible and pick places that had high review ratings as a whole, and not just randomly selecting locations.  However, feel free to comment on here, Twitter, or Facebook if you would recommend any other places as a MUST GO TO NOW!
