Schimmels


Schimmels is a local restaurant that also hosts blues acts on the weekends. You may have heard of The Subway Lounge. It was an old juke joint featured in the 2003 documentary Last of the Mississippi Juke Joints. Despite efforts to renovate and revitalize the old club, it was demolished in 2004. Luckily there are places like Schimmels who have given those performers new places to play!

j'aime bien la peinture murale, cela donne du chic a l'entrée de ce restaurant.

I like the mural, it is chic at the entrance of the restaurant.

My kind of place- somewhere for live music.

Mississippi has a habit of losing jewels without taking the proper time to try to preserve them.

schimmels in dutch is like a yeast infection, so i read your post with a smile.

That is quite funny! I believe it is the owner's last name. I hope he has never lived in The Netherlands!

What Ineke said is true, it made me laugh when I saw your entry. It could well be a Dutch surname by the way, I think it is actually.

I'm sure the current Schimmel is far removed from his Dutch ancestry. I thought it was a German name, but it could also be Dutch!
