Feeling Groovy and Gritty in Key Biscayne, Florida
Hard to find but impossible to miss, Jimbo's joint is the place to order up an ice-cold beer and the only edible item on the menu: spectacular smoked fish. Surrounded by vibrant shacks, sometimes occupied by rowdy live bands, this watering hole shares space with equally colorful wildlife. Roosters, chicken, dogs, herons, and pelicans are aplenty, and if you're lucky, you may just spot an endangered manatee in the lagoon. Talk about a place with spunk! So enjoy the sights—the "usual" suspects provide great people watching—and you'll feel delightfully disconnected from civilization.
