Have we lost the art of socialising and enjoying ourselves at the pub?
WHAT with computers and computer games, have people lost the art of socialising and enjoying themselves? Have they forgotten that old adage – if you can go out and have a drink or whatever and enjoy yourself that's ok, but if you need a drink and whatever before you go out to enjoy yourself, that's bad news?
Before computers, people seemed to have more time to do socialising.
It didn't help when the breweries changed pubs from bar and lounge with social games like pool and darts etc and other ways to help their patrons to have an evening together, to more or less one big lounge.
I felt that was a terrible move. I and other people remember those fantastic times at one local pub when bands were on and the place was really busy – it was a shame it all ended.

When you consider alcohol is a depressant it's a puzzle why it's associated with being happy?
Thank goodness we still have that excellent pub in Cleethorpes called the Fiddlers in the Market Place run by Mr and Mrs Money – a traditional pub that's all things to all people with food at a very reasonable price.
There's no wonder the patrons are deserting other areas to be in Cleethorpes – and with the Studio bar charging only £2 a drink, is there any wonder?
And you don't have to catch an airliner to go there.

The Telegraph says
In the old days, perhaps it wasn't the alcohol that was the main attraction of going to the pub, but the people you met, the conversations you engaged in and the socialising.
It was very much a meeting place, where old friends were found and new ones were made.
Maybe, this letter writer believes that, with changing times and attitudes, such chat and conversation can no longer be found in modern public houses. Do you agree with these views? Let viewpoint know.
