Mom’s is, without question, a college bar. But it’s also a fun place to party like you still don’t get hangovers that keep you in bed for 24 hours straight. Their Happy Hour is four hours long every day, and features $4 well drinks and $3 beers. The floors are sticky, the music’s loud, and there are multiple beer pong games happening at all times. But sometimes, that’s exactly what you want in a bar.
