That's a lot of weird figures and percentages and I’m not trying to get all technical on anybody. What it boils down to is this isn’t the small town where people leave there doors unlocked all night. You have to watch yourselves and your stuff. Anything can happen at 2AM, especially when your around a lot of people drinking a lot of alcohol in a new place, so watch each other and your equipment. Be safe but definitely don't let it stop you from hitting this place up. There are definitely some great places to play here.
