You cannot out blues the blue bar. Nope, not "blues" bar, but "blue" bar. Big diff. Although house musicians Kevin Kirk and the various members of Onomatopoeia who play with him deliver up blues among the jazz, Chandlers is not a blues bar. But blue it is. Almost eerily so, like an alien ship landed on the roof of Chandlers and an effervescent blue billows out of the ship's open bomb bay doors. Really, it's just simple math: All that blue times your blue equals a positive. With a little help from a martini.
