One of my favourite downtown watering holes, a night at Sky would promise excellent home-grown music and no drunken Ohio teens throwing up on your shoes. Nina always booked great acts - including perennial faves Ron Leary ("The closing of Sky is a major, major blow to the local roots music community") and "Mr. Chill" Kelly Hoppe ("A chapter is closing on a great venue, and Windsor's infinitely poorer for it") - and supported the local scene with an energy that is sure to be missed. Anyone who's been on the receiving end of one of Nina's contagious smiles knows it - this was one place where everyone was treated like a guest in Nina's home.
Please come out and support the remaining local clubs and indie music scene. They are all here as a part of Windsor's collective cultural heritage, and if we don't embrace them - nobody will.
