Sad News Jimmy Krzak...

Postby Tom Dobrowolski » December 1st, 2009, 3:12 pm

Long time Chicago restaurant and bar magician Jimmy Krzak passed away this afternoon. He worked for years at Schulien's and then ever since they closed O'Donnell's. He was one of the very few remaining practitioners of the true Chicago style bar magic. Jimmy was a great guy as well as a talented magician and performer. He will be missed.

Sorry to hear of Jimmy Krzak's passing. Enjoyed his work many times at Schulien's. Tough to see the 'old-style' Chicago bar magician's leave us. RIP Jimmy.

I apologize for the misstatement above as of course it was O'Donovan's where Jimmy was working now NOT O'Donnells.

Here's the obituary from today's Chicago Tribune:
