Mama Tried is a bar that wears a lot of hats. The little Downtown spot can, depending on the night, feel like a dive bar or a cocktail bar or a neighborhood Happy Hour spot. They have good weekly and monthly event programming, like a very popular emo night. It’s the kind of place you end up after midnight, sweaty and ready to dance on their red carpet, which is shockingly clean for a bar carpet. Don’t come here expecting state-of-the-art cocktails. It’s mostly simple well drinks and beer, especially when they get busy on the weekends. But it’s always a fun spot, especially if you’re in the mood for loud music and maybe a shot or two.
