The Sister closes and will re-open as The Tennessee

Rumours of the death of beloved Parkdale watering hole The Sister caused a number of Torontonians to have tiny heart attacks this weekend. Turns out they needn't have worried; while the restaurant and music venue did indeed close, it's reopening this Thursday with new owners, a new menu, and a new name (which is really its old name), The Tennessee.

The newly-rechristened joint had a soft launch on Saturday with a karaoke night, hosted by Jeff Smith, with a recurring karaoke night set for Thursday. Though some changes might be in the works courtesy of new owner Chris Blanchard, I am told the Sister's nachos will be staying.
