A taste of New Orleans in Toronto

After an extended absence from Toronto that included a week in New Orleans, I was so thrilled to return home and find out that a little piece of New Orleans opened up in my neighbourhood.  Fat City Blues, located at 890 College St, has an excellent west-facing patio, which means lots of afternoon sun for us Vitamin D starved Torontonians.  It also has a nice menu of southern specialties including Poh Boys, oysters and my favourite, beignets.  Most importantly though, Fat City Blues has free live music SIX nights of the week (starting at 8pm on weeknights and 9:30pm on weekends).  Considering the limited number of venues that play jazz, big band or blues in Toronto, this is a fantastic development for our music scene.
