What happens when a multi-national corporation
with deep pockets tries to put a struggling industry out of
business? Well, many would sit back and lament the loss; but John
Minadakis from Jimmy's Famous
Seafood in Baltimore is a scrapper and survivor and he
swung back. Hard!
PETA took aim at the crab industry and Jimmy's Famous Seafood was having none of it. They employ too many people to let down. They contribute to so many charities. They have such a long and rich history in Baltimore. So, like any scrapper worth their weight, Jimmy's swung back and is winning this war despite zero help or support from other local crab houses that are equally threatened.
Listen as we talk about Jimmy's Famous Seafood and the history, the people, the contributions, and yes--the war on Peta with John Minadakis, one of the owners of Jimmy's Famous Seafood.
And if you are not familiar with the war,
article is a good summary, but the real gold is in their
Twitter feed. Do yourself a favor, set aside 30 minutes to
scroll back through it. And when you are done, head up to Holabird
Avenue, give them a high-five and a hug and eat some tasty crabs.
PS: And if you are wondering who is behind the
Twitter account...well, you are just going to have to wait and see.
Jimmy's, always looking for a way to give back, is working with
Make-A-Wish to raise
some money before they make the big reveal! Stay tuned.
