Curfew? What's that?  Did you know that your city had a curfew? It's true. In our area, curfew's are imposed for kids, not adults.  The reason we decided to look into this, is with it being summer, and the Pokemon Go! rage, are kids out past curfew? Are they in public parks and places? Here's a list of curfew times in our area, and what each cities terms are:
