The Deal: $6 mules; half-off wine, well drinks, and beer during happy hour (daily 3:30-5:30pm)
The Lowdown: Consistently some of the best foodie-friendly eats in Mammoth, they're worth getting here early to get a seat as well as a great view of the sun setting. The garlic turkey meatballs ($6), short rib grilled cheese ($9), and turkey pastrami ($7) are all fantastic.
The Deal: $6 Coors-and-a-shot; $5 bar food menu during Happy Hour (4-7pm daily)
The Lowdown: With pool, foosball, a killer jukebox, and a great staff, the Clock is the best dive bar in Mammoth. And that would be true even if they didn’t have the best post-ski dish on the planet: totchos. What the eff are totchos? Oh, just nachos with FRIKKING TATER TOTS INSTEAD OF CHIPS. Not that you're even considering ordering anything else, but the $5 happy hour menu also includes fish & chips, pretzel & german sausage, and two corn dogs with fries.
