Go Super to Listen Go Super!

When you go out with your friends, you probably want to know which places are popular. It’s natural for people to be interested in the restaurants, dance clubs, movie theaters, or bars that are getting a lot of attention. If you see people standing in the rain in a long line outside a cafe, there has to be a good reason. They’ve decided that the cafe is where it’s at.

Places are where it’s at for different reasons. A club could be where it’s at because the DJs play awesome music, but it might also offer excellent food. A coffee shop might be where it’s at simply because it sells great coffee, but it might also be a place where single men and women usually hang out. You and your friends can decide that a park is where it’s at, and in time, more and more friends will get the message. It’s really in your hands.

Actor and singer Ross Lynch says that his fans, or the people who buy and listen to his music, are where it’s at. He loves playing music for them, because together they make the performance a place where he wants to be.

Do you know a place that’s where it’s at in your city? What makes it great?

There are lots of where it’s at places in Istanbul to have fun and spend your time quite well. However, I am not please enough because I have not several close friends and also sufficient time to join as a group and meet up together in order to be in where it’s at places. On the other side I hate to go alone into these places. However the only way to solve this trouble is to carve out time and seek for friends to participate in crowded communities such as restaurants, bars and so on.

Naira,  also in Argentina , where it`s at , would translate in spanish as ” la movida ” , this street in summer is  full of    young people  having fun .   Franchises as  Mcdonald`s  and Burguer king  are packed up  with them  . Also it could be a place with  trendy disco clubs and restaurants .
