Kermit Ruffins is seen here relaxing in front of his brand new 9th Ward Juke Joint. The Lower 9th Ward now has two bars with Mercedes Place holding down the fort just a few blocks away on Burgundy.

New Orleans, LA
update: from Kermit’s Twitter: “Kermit’s 9th Ward Juke Joint is Open everyday now at 11am until, no cover charge. There’s a rumor going around that there’s a cover charge every day. (Cover is…) only on Wednesdays when Kermit plays.”
