It would seem as if teenagers in the area would want for nothing, hangout-wise. But think about it. The bars won’t have them, diners kick you out after an hour or so, concerts are too expensive or take place at 21-and-up venues, and museums aren’t really their forte. Which brings us to TEEN, a combination of a tutoring center, game room, performance space, ultimate-style hangout conceived by certified teachers.
On Friday and Saturday nights, the 13-to-17 crowd can come hang out, play video and board games, mingle with peers, or dance the night away. Until 11:00 that is. Cliques from local high and middle schools mix and mingle in a space that would please any parent. TEEN is a non-nonsense facility and security is tight. A membership package priced at $80 gives teens access to 6 hours a week of homework help, one free pass to the weekend fun and dances, and regular lounge play Monday- Friday 3:00-8:00 pm.
