All aboard! Trumpeter and unofficial NOLA mayor Kermit Ruffins took over this brightly muraled, historic spot from dearly beloved Ernie K-Doe (the decor no longer features his illustrious manikin, sadly). It mostly draws 7th Ward locals; entertainment is irregular and consists mostly of overamplified beats. But if Kermit happens to be blowing, or if the BBQ is fired up in the yard, it's worth stopping in for a bone, a brew, and the historic value.
