Bette Midler (Hard Rock Live-Hollywood)

Posted on April 19th, 2015 · Deals Hollywood Music/Events/Other · No Comments »

* Bette Midler.

Jeff Eats first told you guys about these “concerts” way-back on 12/4/2014…

No fooling here, everyone that I have “spoken” to about these shows has bitched about how EXPENSIVE the tickets were priced…

I’m with you guys, $188.80-$475.65 is way too high. Jeff Eats -just this minute “checked” the seating maps for both shows- and there are plenty of good seats left…I guess the General Public sees the shows- like you and I do- too expensive!

Anyway, to make a long story short…if you check specials.restaurants.com- it’s running a $169 “deal” on both shows…I don’t have the full details, but for $169 you get a ticket and a $100 food-card to use at select restaurants. Just maybe worth checking out!

* 2015 Pompano Beach Festival.

If you can “handle” the admission-charge this should be a terrific event…

Jeff Eats only bitch with this festival- those $15 numbers in my book -are-just-too-high…I’m thinking 10 bucks sounds much better to me!

The Addams Family Musical: A Creepy and Kooky Comedy (Sol Theatre- Boca Raton)

Posted on April 19th, 2015 · Boca Raton Deals Music/Events/Other · 1 Comment »

* The Addams Family Musical: A Creepy and Kooky Comedy.

First told you guys about this “show” way-back on 3/18/15…

Long story short,

Last night Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats saw The Addams Family and absolutely loved it. Very small theatre (maybe 50 seats) on a first come first served seating basis…16 actors, track music, 2-acts (70 minutes/50 minutes/15 minute intermission)- no fooling here, some real strong singing and dancing- along with a very funny script. Are we taking “Broadway” here? No! But trust Jeff Eats when I tell you, you won’t be disappointed. Like I said 1.7 seconds ago, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats-loved it and I’m thinking that you will too!

If you want to “go”- goldstar.com still has a ticket ‘deal” running…

* The Addams Family Musical: A Creepy and Kooky Comedy.

Jeff Eats just picked-up 2- 4/18/15-tickets for “The Addams Family Musical: A Creepy and Kooky Comedy” which is set for an April 17-May 3 run at the Sol Theatre in Boca Raton….

For you historians out there…the show ran on Broadway in 2010-2011 and starred Nathan Lane!

Just between you and Jeff Eats, goldstar.com is running a “deal” with those- $25 tickets going for $12.50, but that’s just between you and Jeff Eats!

Not that it really matters (you-know, what I might like you might hate and vice versa)-but I’ll let you guys know what I “think” after I see the-thing!

Experience both laughter and chills as Charles Addams’ weird and wonderful characters creep into Boca Raton’s Sol Theatre for the South Florida professional premiere of The Addams Family Musical. In this fiendishly delightful award-winning musical comedy, Wednesday Addams — now a grown-up princess of darkness — has fallen for a normal boy from a respectable family and has invited him and his parents to the family mansion for a meet-and-greet gone gothic. Sit back and savor the horrific hospitality of Gomez, Morticia, Pugsley, Grandma, Lurch and everyone’s favorite weirdo, Uncle Fester, as the special occasion brings out the best — and worst — in everyone involved.

Mr. Potato Head

Posted on April 18th, 2015 · Music/Events/Other · 4 Comments »

* Mr. Potato Head.

Just in case one-day you find yourself on Jeopardy!

from mom.me

Mr. Potato Head
This famous spud was the first toy to be advertised on television. From 1952 to 1963 parents had to provide their kids with actual potatoes to use as Mr. Potato Head’s body. Hasbro began manufacturing the plastic potato body that currently comes in the box in 1964.

Just between Jeff Eats and you guys, whenever I have to spell/type the word potato- I “see” former Vice President Dan Quayle’s face…do you guys have the same reaction?

Jr’s Gourmet Burgers (Miami Springs)

>image***** image

***** Jr’s Gourmet Burgers.

Here’s another Jeff Eats’ “out of sight out of mind” joint for you…Jr’s Gourmet Burgers in Miami Springs.

First told you guys about this hole in the wall burger joint- on 4/9/12 (that tale is down below)- hadn’t been back since…long story short, ate dinner there last night and I gotta tell you the bacon cheeseburger, chicken breast sandwich, onion rings, sweet potato fries, french fries were all -right on the money!

This joint is an absolute winner…only problem I got with it, it’s not in my neighborhood- thus the out of sight out of mind-designation.

No fooling here, outrageously delicious burgers…

Jr’s Gourmet Burgers (Miami Springs)
Posted on April 9th, 2012 · American Miami Lakes

***** Jr’s Gourmet Burgers, 7 Westward Drive, Miami Springs, Florida 33166, (786) 360-5347.

First, if you look, I got this joint listed as being in Miami Lakes, but it’s really in Miami Springs…don’t have a Miami Springs “category”—so you now know the city where this terrific “mom & pop” hole-in the wall burger joint is located.

One of my favorite meals is a cheeseburger–fries smothered in Ketchup–Coca Cola. Well let me tell you, Jr’s makes delicious burgers and fries. When you check Jr’s menu at www.jrsburgers.com you will find that the joint has 3- sized flat grilled burgers, 1/3 lb, 1/2 lb, 1 lb…handful of toppings…handful of sandwiches…handful of hot dogs…handful of salads—end of story. If I got it right, the pop-Jr is the “cook” and the wife is the wait-staff.

Like I said a few seconds ago–delicious burgers and fries. For the record, I did a 1/3er with American cheese ($6.99) and fries ($1.50). Let me make this real-simple, the burger and fries are right up there with the best currently out there in the South Florida market. Really-just that simple!

Jr’s is open Monday-Thursday 11am-9pm, Saturday 11am-10pm, closed on Sunday.

America’s Best 25 College Bars

Posted on April 16th, 2015 · American Music/Events/Other · 2 Comments »

* America’s Best 25 College Bars.

This column is for you guys- who are “picking” colleges for your kids (or for that matter- yourselves) to go to-next-Fall!

Jeff Eats did some heavy-duty research (actually I found the list on dailymeal.com) on what are considered- America’s best 25-college bars.

In looking at the list, I found that 3 (#2, #4, #15) of the top 25 BARS were in FLORIDA…so there you go! and- you thought that Florida just- had great weather, great beaches and great scam artists…

By the way, The Boot/Tulane University in Louisiana was #1… Now you know why Tulane’s tuition is soooo high!

Hope this column helps you out with picking a school to go to!

You can catch the whole list at dailymeal.com.

4/25. Bullwinkle’s Saloon – Florida State University – Tallahassee, Florida
Since 1979, Bullwinkle’s Saloon has been catering to the needs, and mouths, of the Florida State Seminoles. Bullwinkle’s ranked so high on the list thanks to its convenient location to campus, live rock and roll band, massive dance floor, and outside double deck area. And for $10, students can drink as much as they want during the week. How can you top that drink special?

15/25. Salty Dog Saloon – University of Florida – Gainesville, Fla.
Anyone from Florida knows that the Gators are big on football and drinking. With a wide range of college bars in Gainesville, how could you choose the best? The Salty Dog Saloon, a 50-year old establishment, stands out in the crowd with its jukebox, 50-cent drink happy hour and every Sunday’s 2-for-1 mimosa special. For less than $10, the Salty Dog’s patrons can get the most booze for their buck.

2/25. Knight Library – University of Central Florida – Orlando, Florida
A ranked list of the best college bars in America would not be complete without the University of Central Florida’s Knight Library. The general size of the establishment is impressive in itself; students have access to three full bars, a giant dance floor, a patio bar, and even VIP sections. Not a big dancer or drinker? Knight Library has darts, customized beer pong tables, and corn hole boards to get you entertained. Still not impressed? An Island Oasis frozen drink machine is the newest addition to the bar.

1/25. And the title of the best college bar in America goes to none other than The Boot, a Tulane favorite. If you’re a broke college student, and only have a couple of quarters to spare, you have enough for a drink at 50-cent drink night at The Boot. The Knight Library was originally tied with this college bar, but in the end, location was the deciding factor. Our panel of college students came to a consensus that the Boot and the city of New Orleans, especially during Mardi Gras, is the ideal place to throw back a few drinks and celebrate four years of relative freedom.

***** Top Burger.

Jeff Eats first told you guys about this fast food hole in the wall- burger joint way back on October 19,2012 (that tale is reprinted down below)…

Long story short, hadn’t been back until yesterday afternoon- and I gotta tell you, Top Burger is still serving-up delicious cheeseburgers and fresh handcut French fries …

Trust me on this one, this is a good joint to catch a burger at!

By the way, there are now 2- Top Burger joints…1 (the original)- 109 Northeast 1st Avenue, Miami and 1- 764 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach. You can check topburger.com for menu/prices/info.

***** Top Burger, 109 Northeast 1st Avenue, Miami, Florida 33132, (305) 379-3100.

Top Burger…small- hole in the wall fast food burger joint in Miami. Handful of formica tables and counter seating.

Top Burger opened in August, 2012…you can check menu/prices/photos at http://topburger.com.

Let me make this one real short and real simple…the grilled top cheese burger/french fries were delicious.

Like Jeff Eats mentioned a few seconds ago, the joint has been in business for only a few months… nothing “original” going on here—burgers, fries, hot dogs, chicken breast sandwiches, shakes.

You know and I know that eventually this game of fast food burgers “musical chairs” is gonna end real-badly for most of the joints in this space. Only time will tell if Top Burger can successfully carve out a niche for itself.

Top Burger is open Monday-Friday 11am-5pm, Saturday 11am-10pm, closed on Sunday.
