Have you been to the Bromuda Triangle of Spokane?


NEWS: This Spokane Public Schools science and technology program is testing social and academic boundaries by putting middle school students into high schools and teaching them a college level curriculum. And it's working.

NIGHTLIFE: Most of the time, Main Avenue and Division Street is a relatively inconspicuous corner of downtown Spokane. But Friday and Saturday nights, the strip of bars pulse with people of all ages. Sticky floors, sloppy dancing, greasy pizza and lots and lots of drunk people. It is the 'Bromuda Triangle.'
