Kermit Likely to Reopen Mother-in-Law with Live Music

Update: When Kermit Ruffins took over the lease on the Mother-in-Law Lounge in January 2011, he planned to re-open the Treme club as a live music venue. When he wasn' able to get it open by June of that year, its conditional use permit lapsed. The Mother-in-Law Lounge isn't zoned for live music, but it could host it as a nonconforming use under a conditional use permit. If a business stops operation for six months, those permits lapse.
