“If there’s a bar where everybody knows your name, you’re probably an alcoholic”

"If there’s a bar where everybody knows your name, you’re probably an alcoholic” is a jocular saying that has been printed on GIFs.” The American television sitcom Cheers (1982-1993) took place in a bar and had the popular theme song line, “Where Everybody Knows Your Name.”

Go to a bar where everyone knows your name. This does not mean that you are a popular person. This means that you are probably an alcoholic” was printed in a 2000 book. “If you actually go to a bar where the people are and everyone knows your name… congratulations, you’re an alcoholic!” was cited on Twitter on July 2, 2010.

Wikipedia: Cheers
Cheers is an American sitcom that ran for eleven seasons between 1982 and 1993. The show was produced by Charles/Burrows/Charles Productions in association with Paramount Network Television for NBC and created by the team of James Burrows, Glen Charles, and Les Charles. The show is set in a bar named Cheers (named after the popular toast) in Boston, Massachusetts, where a group of locals meet to drink, relax, and socialize. The show’s main theme song, written and performed by Gary Portnoy, and co-written with Judy Hart Angelo, lent its famous refrain “Where Everybody Knows Your Name” as the show’s tagline.
