How Bars Save Your Town
(And Not Just From Boredom)
When it’s the weekend and there’s nothing really to do, you always have a great backup plan: the neighborhood bar. Whether you’re just heading over for a quick bite, to meet some friends, or to hear some music, you know it will always be there.
Sadly, that’s not entirely true. Local breweries, bars, and pubs can fade away when too few people in the area visit them. Tourists tend to hit chain restaurants and bars because they know what they’re like; each one of them is the same. But locals should go to local establishments.
That’s not just because these places are great for giving you something to do. Local drinking establishments can help save the community by giving residents a place to socialize, bringing in dollars, and promoting the local music and arts scene.
