Tommy Farha Cafe & Bar is now Tommy’s “The Happy Place.”

Susan Wicks, a Brookside resident, had been a customer of the bar — at 8019 Wornall Road — for about three years.

Wicks purchased it in January and has spent the last few weeks remodeling the bar and adding TVs to the heated outdoor deck, just in time for the Super Bowl.

She also plans to offer live music several times a month.

“I love the neighborhood feel,” Wicks said. “And the patrons of the bar are a great group of fun, interesting people.”
