There are several places to party in Yakima, Washington. Some places are similar to the clubs of bigger cities; some are areas that are on the outskirts of town. One place that many people seem to frequent is called Hoops Sports Bar. There is a variety of things to do at Hoops; such as dancing, alcoholic beverages, pool, and pull tabs. If you are a rowdy person this is the place for you, if not then you should try the Speakeasy. The speakeasy does have Jell-o Wrestling for you guys and gals that may be into that sort of thing. You can get a pretty good drink there as well. If the Speakeasy gets boring, walk across the parking lot to Yakima Sports Center. Here, you might try your hand at some poker. If you are not into the whole bar thing, I would recommend a poker run.
A poker run is usually a bunch of people with horses or dirt bikes. Usually people go Cascade Park. They ride to different places on a route and play poker. Usually these take place in an area where you can park a bunch of vehicles for example, a camping area. After the sun sets things get fun. A person can meet up with friends, have a few beers and enjoy a bonfire. Usually you meet new people, have good conversations and get a little inebriated.
There are several other places you can party when in Yakima; a lot of people like to go to a camping area called Tampico. In Tampico there is an area that is open and flat where people go, there is a sat up for motor homes as well as tents. This way you do not have to drive anywhere after the party and can be safe. Yakima has a variety of places to hang out and party. Just don’t drink and drive and you’ll be fine! The police here are notorious for pulling people over for miniscule mistakes, and when you are drinking and driving you are making a HUGE mistake. So, please do not drink and drive it is not safe and not cool!
