(Liz Torrey, Fox News) In the city of “Cheers,” two young entrepreneurs are fighting to bring back happy hour.
Former Boston-area students Sam Davidson and Brian Sachetta have launched a petition to overturn Massachusetts’ longstanding ban on happy-hour discounts — and have gathered over 8,500 signatures so far.

Broadly speaking, the two are trying to boost the Boston nightlife and make the city more inviting for young people.
