MIAMI (AP) -- The Miami dive bar and tourist attraction Jimbo's is being told to clean-up its act.

The city has embarked on a soft-glove version of a code-enforcement crackdown on James "Jimbo" Luznar's famously tumbledown and quasi-legal palace of cheap beer, smoked fish and bocci ball.

The old-Florida outpost has survived the onslaught of hurricanes, rezonings and yuppies more or less intact, but its supporters questions whether it can survive this.

City officials stress that they don't want Jimbo or his shrimp house gone so long as the man is alive.

But the city says just about everything else around it has to go: The derelict vehicles and junked boat hulls and the old multicolored school bus.
