in Hibbing, Minnesota
is For Sale

After 30 years of nurturing Zimmy's restaurant, the un-official
Bob Dylan / Robert Zimmerman museum in Hibbing, Minnesota,
the owners, Linda and Bob Hocking are looking to sell.

Linda and Bob Hocking
There are volumes of guest books from thousands of wayward
travelers looking to find "Bob" inspiration in northern Minnesota.
It is here - the magic - the mystical Dylan connection!
It is a turn-key restaurant, ready to go. Annual sales were always great
for a small business in a small town. Marketing Zimmy's was never fully
explored and the worldwide recognition came for free. We have been
fortunate to be acknowledged in books, magazines and documentaries.
Our goal was to keep the arts alive in Bob's hometown. Someone
new could bring things to the next level. This was our baby and we
would be happy to help the new owners in any way we could.
