by Ted S. McGregor Jr. & r & & r & & lt;span class= "dropcap " & Y & lt;/span & es it is possible to prove that nightlife, indeed, exists, we sent out a team of highly trained anthropologists -- cleverly disguised as your everyday, run-of-the-mill pub crawlers -- to document the myriad forms of the life that come out after the sun goes down. In the name of science, our researchers went out in search of activity.

On the following pages, you'll find the diaries of Ann Colford, Joel Smith, Luke Baumgarten and Carey Murphy. They took some of their own pictures for proof, but we also hired noted wild life photographer Pat Kennedy to snap the big pictures you'll find at the beginning of each diary (like the one of the Satellite above). But to start with, we've compiled their field notes, so that you can try to replicate their experiments at any number of Inland Northwest hangouts.

* For even more information on nightlife in the Inland Northwest, read our Calendar and Music sections each week. And for a full listing, pick up an Annual Manual wherever Inlanders are available.
