The origins of the world famous Joe's Stone Crabs. However, the date may be in error because HistoryMiami says: "On December 4th, 1920, Joe Weiss opened his owned restaurant called Joe's Diner. This was after Joe left his prior position as the chef at the Sunshine Inn because of a change in management. Joe's Diner later was renamed to Joe's Stone Crabs." I don't know how the state archives can be wrong but something is amiss here.
