Babies at Bars?? This may sound like a joke but in the Williamsburg area this is a common phenomenon. As reported by DNAinfo, many of the young parents are bringing their infants to the local bars. Some even go as far as organizing social mommy groups. Due to complaints from other bar patrons many areas are now enacting bans on babies in bars.
