Where: 225 Church St. Half street just north of Market. Old City. MAP
If you just turned 21 or are a bike loving hipster, chances are you want to have a 'Hangover-esque' time on the cheap. Or maybe you want to have a great time with your friends but just graduated, your degree came with a McDonald's job application and are buried in student loans. Or maybe you just want to feel like you are in college again. If you answered yes to any of the above, Sugar Mom's is THE place to go!
Buried in Old City (literally... it is a basement bar), Sugar Mom's is filled with hand-me-down college apartment furniture, carnival ride rejects and bachelor pad toys. Pinball, Pacman, Pool, the mama's got it all!
While its beer selection can hold its own against any beer snob, its prices are hobo cheap. (I wonder why hobos haven't found this place. Maybe they brew their own beer?)
Your $1 tall can PBR weekend special comes with a complimentary sign-up on the liver transplant list. Try the 50 cent pierogies on Wednesdays. So come go with your friends and sit on the idiosyncratic furniture (lil' toy cars, horses etc) and forget everything else. Or sit at the bar and strike up a conversation with someone interesting.
My only complaint? The videogames/ pinball ain't free! Or at least give me tickets every time I play so I can buy useless crap or a PBR with it!
The Crowd: Fun. Yuppie meets Hipster. Everyone is welcome. 20s and early 30s. Never over-crowded. The place is huge.
Why Go There: Fun. Fun. Did I mention Fun? Cheap booze. Incredible specials.
Why Not: 'Cuz they are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Perfect Time to go: Friday - Sunday 7-11pm
Occasion: Night out with friends. Fun, cheap date. People-watching.
