There is little us Aussies enjoy more than getting together with friends, family or colleagues, tucking into some good food and having a relaxing night out.
A good local, a true local, is like an extension of your lounge room - you feel comfortable and welcomed and know that whenever you walk in you’ll see a familiar face.
When a pub works well, it's a community and its own little world.
So, if you are looking for a reason to head down to your local, try some of these:
A night off: It’s been a long day at work. You are sick of the age-old question “what’s for dinner?” and you would just like an evening off from the endless routine of cooking and washing-up.

Be social: There is a tendency, the busier people get, to make like a bear and hibernate at home.
But social beings are happier beings.
If you are questioned about heading out for a meal, a brew and a yarn with friends, family or colleagues, just explain that the night out is a morale boosting exercise.
The big screen: As a nation of sports lovers, a pub with big screen tvs showing the biggest sporting matches of the moment is often the best place to relax.
Let’s celebrate: The old saying is that life is about the journey, not the destination, so be sure to celebrate all the little joys and milestones that life serves up.
Wind down: Whether it’s at the end of a long day or another tough week, heading out for an intimate dinner for two, a reasonably priced meal with the family or a breakdown of the week with work buddies can be just what is needed to recharge everybody’s batteries.
