We have a restaurant that is similar to Cheers in our life. For years, it has been a staple for us to go to for birthday occasions, for nights when cooking just felt like too much effort or when we just wanted to get together with friends at the bar for a drink.
There’s something special about a place where everybody knows your name – or at least some people do! I think we all feel that way when we share experiences. I know for me, I feel very grateful that when I go there, whether as a family or with friends. I feel like someone’s watching out for me. Someone whom I trust.
It’s a locals place – our neighborhood Cheers. It’s not a franchise chain restaurant, but one that has stood the test of time for many years, even though the owners have changed, and even improved it! I have so many delightful memories in that place and whew – if the walls could talk – they’d surely sing of a myriad of nights spent there for all different reasons.
The food is consistently good. The help are personable and many have been working there for years so we know them well – and they know us! My favorite bartender of all time is nicknamed Pal and we’ve known each other over twenty years. He’s the manager now of our local Cheers, but I remember when he first got married and had kids and he remembers when I did too! Isn’t it nice to just have a lovely friend? I just wanted to see if any of you have a Cheers place in your neighborhood?
In case you forgot the theme song, here it is below! Enjoy!
