Rest In Peace, "Sweet Jimmie" - Thanks for the Memories

Condolences to the family and friends of Jimmie Ward (better known as "Sweet Jimmie").

The well-known nightclub owner and promoter "Sweet Jimmie" Ward died Friday night at the age of 74.

He opened Sweet Jimmie's at 577 18th St. in 1987 and closed it nearly two decades later.

I remember partying at Sweet Jimmie's with George Clinton during KRE Radio's Heyday. We had many listener parties at the venue and there was never any trouble.

I get the feeling there's a big party going on up there right now!
