The Original Mother's Nightclub at 26 W. Division Street. It stands in for the Free and Easy club where Skip (Lowe) sends Jonathon (McCarthy) to meet the girl of his dreams after he's banned from the Foxfield School for girls and thus has to stay at his room at Vernon Academy on Halloween. You can easily check the location for yourself. On the corner of Division St. and Dearborn, you have Hoolihans and nextdoor is the Free & Easy Club. They put a big yellow light box with Free & Easy where the trademark heartlogo of Mother's hangs. Nextdoor you have She-nannigan's House of Beer. Check the scene where Jonathon arrives at the Free & Easy Club in a taxicab. This should give you a good insight in the area and the locations mentioned.
