A new study found that being a regular at a small, local bar is good for you.  People who have a bar where everybody knows their name are significantly happier, have more friends, and have better life satisfaction than other people.

And believe it or not, they're actually LESS likely to binge drink.

The researchers say it's because face-to-face interaction is still important in this day and age, possibly even MORE than it used to be.

Quote, "Given the increasing tendency for our social life to be online, having relaxed, accessible venues where people can meet old friends and make new ones becomes more necessary."

What's your favorite, local bar to meet with friends and a few drinks?
