I think we can all agree that we've heard Abilene is "boring" and there's nothing to do here. Well, that used to be true, but times are changing. At least somewhat.

Now before I go on, I will say there is nothing wrong with going to the bar. But if that's the only place you take a date you won't be dating long and you'll end up broke. I mean let's face it, drinks are expensive these days, right? Plus, you know, hangovers.
