It pains me to say this

The Internet can't match the local pub:
The Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) has perhaps merely confirmed what all right-minded people already know: that those who have a local boozer in which to quaff ale and chew the fat with mates are "significantly happier" than wretched souls who do not. 
CAMRA asked Oxford Uni's Professor Robin Dunbar to look into the link between pub-based social interaction and personal wellbeing. He concluded that "having a strong social network significantly improves both your happiness and your overall health".
So much as I love all y'all, get out to your local and have a pint with your mates.  Because SCIENCE®!

In this case at least The Science is Settled.

Wait a minute. I seem to remember once or twice in Borepatch's youth when social encounters with others (who might also have been imbibing the local brew) were less than friendly...

How much government grant money did they run through to confirm the obvious?

The neo-Prohibitionists have made it impossible to drink even small amounts of alcohol and still pass a breathalyzer test. Thus, I never drink in bars and restaurants any more unless there is a DD, which there usually isn't. Upside of non-drinking is that there is no issue about carrying, at least in this state.
