Kermit Ruffins set to reopen Mother-In-Law Lounge. Vanessa Bolano reports.

The New Orleans City Council voted unanimously to approve a zoning change that will allow musician Kermit Ruffins to bring live music back to Ernie K-Doe’s Mother-In-Law Lounge.

The building sits in the 1500 block of North Claiborne Avenue.

K-Doe died in 2001. The club lost its license when it closed six months ago.

Ruffins hope to have it open again by Carnival.
