Haynes' Chicken Shack is Fading Away

Sadly, the former Haynes' Chicken Shack is looking worse for wear.

From 1952 to 1998 it was home to one of the city's iconic live music spots, where greats like Billy Daniels, Oscar Peterson and Harry Belafonte came to jam after their shows.

For more about Percy and Zena Haynes and their restaurant, check out my 2012 post about them: http://westenddumplings.blogspot.ca/2012/02/manitoba-black-history-percy-haynes.html

My wife and I ate at Haynes once in the late 1980s/early 1990s. We were hoping some music would break out, but alas it was a very quiet night, with just us and a few friends of the Haynes in the dining room that night.
