Friends, customers and past employees of Jim and Linda Burwell will want to be in Fondren Sunday afternoon from 2-5pm. This is when you’ll have your chance to say goodbye to their Mimi’s Family & Friends, closing its doors after two years. The couple announced just over a month ago that they would shutter their breakfast and lunch spot to focus on other interests. Sunday’s party will feature beer and wine (Jim says ‘enough to start’) and music from Josh Little (a cook at Mimi’s) and Taylor Hildebrand and Valley Gordon. The party would be incomplete if not for a taste of something good from the kitchen. Jim said yesterday with a chuckle, “I hope it gets really out of hand. It’d be really fun to have something crazy and spontaneous”.
