By no means been to the Mom In Regulation? The bar first established itself within the mid-’90s as a house base for Ernie Ok-Doe, the native R&B singer who had a No. 1 hit within the early ’60s with the traditional “Mom-in-Regulation,” however fell on onerous instances within the years that adopted. His spouse Antoinette managed each the bar and her husband’s re-emergence on the music scene till his dying in July of 2001. After his passing, Antoinette grew to become a neighborhood celeb and steward of the tavern till she herself died, abruptly, of a coronary heart assault behind the Mom-in-Regulation bar within the early hours of Mardi Gras 2009.
Ruffins reopened the venue in 2014.
