Hi All,

I'll start with an explanation. I have a job I truly enjoy, however It requires me to work the weekend, overnight (D) shift. As such all of my friends and family are asleep while I am awake. So i pose this question to the hopefully like minded. What are some good, night time hobbies. Please feel free to shout out even the most unusual, strange, and bizzare ideas you can think of. Even if they dont work for me, the ideas could be entertaining. Please keep in mind I live in an urban area and dont really want to wake the neighbors. They are nice but older people and have been good to me over the last 5 years. Thank you and let the ideas flow!

You're reckless.....you're reckless and that makes you dangerous...

Cat Juggling...I think I've seen it all now.

Astronomy, if you can go outside.

Night-vision archery.  Weightlifting.  Martial arts or boxing.  There's always the college-student fallback ... booze and video games.

Fly Tying

Knitting

Maybe writing? Bring along a laptop and just let your muse do its thing.

I'm searching for a evening hobby myself. I usually have a few drinks in the evening and am trying to replace that habit with something more productive. Fly tying is a great idea which I have done for years, although, really, how many flies do you need? I'm researching building wooden model airplanes and sailing ships, although the price seems a bit high. Cat juggling is out, for obvious reasons. That leaves night-vision archery and booze--a dubious combination but worth a try...

What "obvious reasons"? None come to mind.

I'm colorblind.

Writing is a good night time hobby.  If you're artistically inclined, painting or drawing.  I find I'm more creative at night than in the day.  

Aren't there bunches of lists of manly hobbies on here and the main site? Read those; eliminate anything that makes noise or requires daylight, and you have your list.

All the small-building hobbies meet this requirement - whittling, model-building, sewing depending on space

I work the "swing shift".  I get home around 12:30 am, and as much as I'd like to, I can't go straight to bed.  I try doing chores and projects that I can't get done during the day before work.  Yes, that limits things drastically.  For example, I built a chicken coop about 6 months ago.  I would make all my cuts during the day before work, and at night when I got home, I screw things in, paint, and anything else that wouldn't be too loud.
