Gone are the days of celebrating Jimbo’s Birthday at Jimbo’s on Virginia Key. Jimbo’s Shrimp Shack on Virginia Key was an iconic location in Miami’s history, and Jimbo remains a legendary figure, a friend to thousands of good people from every walk of life. The City of Miami was quick to turn his eclectic and historic stomping grounds into an empty park once that lease expired. Nevertheless, the tradition continues.
Join 7th Annual Jimbo’s Birthday and Appreciation Celebration – Jimbo Luznar may be gone, but his spirit and legacy live on! For the 7th year running, Gramps will celebrate his birthday, from Virginia Key, to the celebration’s current iteration in Wynwood, at Gramps. Now that Jimbo has passed on, we honor him and his love of the outdoors by donating a portion of sales from the event to the Everglades Foundation. Additionally, we will make a donation in his name to the Alzheimer’s Association.
