The glossy, upscale food magazine Saveur recently spotlighted Krazy Jim’s Blimpy Burger, the popular burger joint on Division near the U-M West Quad. The mouth-watering article by Richard Reynolds appeared in the magazine’s “Fare” section, under the headline “BLIMPY ETERNAL: A CAMPUS LEGEND KEEPS THE BURGER COMING." In the brief article, the writer recalls arriving as a student at U-M in 1962, when he says Krazy Jim’s Blimpy Burger was already a local institution. He traces the history, serves up some present-day Blimpy tidbits, and finally reveals: “I would walk barefoot over broken glass for my favorite: a triple-meat Blimpy cheeseburger on an onion roll with ketchup, mayo, and onions – don’t hold the juice.” You can read Reynolds’ piece in the May issue of Saveur, available from the periodicals room on the second floor of the downtown library. Just look for the cover photo of a fancy layer cake, showcasing berries, cake and tea in England - pretty much the opposite of the Blimpy experience, isn't it?
